This means the firm can now provide both micronized powdered and liquid forms of Splenda from the U.S., in addition to Singapore.

The Alabama plant producing liquid Splenda sucralose sweetener has now also begun making micronized powder sucralose. Owner Tate & Lyle (Chicago) says this means the firm can now provide both micronized powdered and liquid forms of Splenda from the United States, in addition to Singapore.

“Our two-plant model and the maintenance of safety stocks of both forms of Splenda sucralose across the world mean we can provide our customers with unparalleled flexibility and security of supply, no matter what challenges they might face,” says Ralf Loeffelholz, global vice president, sucralose product management.

Splenda sucralose is a non-sugar, zero-calorie sweetener now used in more than 5000 products in over 80 countries, the company says. It is said to have sweetening power approximately 600 times that of sugar.
