Sucralose, an alternative to sugar

Sucralose is an artificial sweetener with the code E-955 low in calories that does not reduce the organoleptic properties of a product.


The sucralose is an artificial sweetener which can be used to replace sugar; It has less caloric intake and does not stimulate the release of insulin. Your allowable daily intake is 0-15 mg / kg of weight / day. It is used as an ingredient in a wide variety of beverages and many processed foods.

The increase in the rate of overweight and obesity is a public health problem, and although there is still a long way to go, official agencies are taking action to make the food industry reformulate processed foods and change certain components for other healthier. One of the ingredients that is in the spotlight is sugar , as it is present in more processed foods than we think and in higher quantities than desired. Hence the search for other alternatives , such as the use of low calorie sweeteners to help reduce the caloric load of sugary foods and beverages without reducing the narcoleptic properties of the product. One of those that are usually used is sucrose ,  an artificial sweetener that we can identify with the code E-955, and that is obtained by modification of sucrose or table sugar.  

  1. Differences between sugar and sucralose
  2. How much sucralose can be taken?
  3. Sucralose for cooking
  4. Other uses of sucralose
  5. Possible effects of sucralose

Differences between sugar and sucralose 

The sucralose  is very different sugar , because due to its molecular structure, is hardly absorbed in the intestine, therefore their caloric intake is very low . Instead, it interacts with the same taste buds as sugar, but has a much more intense sweetness level , being 600 times sweeter than the original product. 

On the other hand, unlike sugar, sucralose , in principle, does not stimulate the release of insulin and  does not cause changes in blood glucose levels . However, recent studies question this claim, although more research is needed.  

How much  sucralose  can be taken? 

To know what amount of sucralose can be consumed, we must look at the ADI  (Allowable Daily Intake)  that has been assigned. It is the estimation of the amount of a substance, expressed in terms of body weight, which can be taken daily throughout life without posing a risk to health. It is expressed in mg of additive per Kg of body weight and per day. In the case of sucralose, the ADI is 0-15 mg / kg of weight / day , therefore, for a 70 kg person, the maximum amount that could be taken per day would be 1050 mg (1.05 g). 

Sucralose for cooking 

Sucralose is very stable and resists high temperatures, a characteristic that allows its use in cooked foods such as confectionery products, without losing its ability to sweeten. It can be used in substitution of sugar or in combination with it to reduce the caloric intake of a recipe, although the processing time may be slightly different. We can find it in several presentations: liquid, granulated, in envelopes and in tablets.  

Other uses  of sucralose 

The sucralose is used as an ingredient in a wide variety of drinks and many processed foods such as baked goods, bakery products , fruit juices, milk , canned fruits, and in general, products labeled “0% sugars” or light “.   

Possible effects  of sucralose 

Although there are no contraindications for its use in adults, children, and even pregnancy, possible adverse effects of sucralose are being studied . Although studies have been conducted in animals, it has been observed that low calorie sweeteners  alter the balance of the bacterial flora of the gastrointestinal tract. It should also be considered if consumption is regular and long-term.  

The replacement of sugar by sucralose or other sweeteners is a good alternative to reduce the caloric content of the products and promote better control of body weight without sacrificing sweetness . It allows people who enter weight loss programs to enjoy this taste without having to count calories. In any case, it would be convenient if we were to disinhabited ourselves with so much sweet taste. Well, in childhood we are accustomed to this taste, which we incorporate into our diet daily, and to which we are totally hooked.  

Do you want to know instantly the amount of sugar contained in each food you eat ?: Find out how to do it

At DKV we encourage you to reduce your sugar consumption so that you can improve your health. With the new Sin Azúcar app it will be much easier to get it. Try it now!


Sugar is more harmful to your health than you think and is in large proportions in many more foods than you could imagine.

Did you know that a can of soda contains a quantity of sugar equivalent to ten cubes of this substance? And that a yogurt has the equivalent of four cubes and ribs with barbecue sauce to twenty?

So that you have enough information about how sugar affects your body and you can reduce its consumption to improve your health, DKV has teamed up with the organization Sin Azúcar .

Thus, for example, DKV is collaborating in the diffusion of the exhibition “Without sugar” that shows, through photographs, the amount of sugar that you eat every day without realizing with each one of the foods that you consume.

If you have not had the opportunity to see it, do not worry. You have other options at your disposal to know everything about sugar and how to maintain a healthy diet:

  1. Download the new Sin Azúcar app. This new tool has a label scanner to calculate the number of lumps equivalent to each food you take. In addition, it gives you access to all the photographs that the organization Sin Azúcar publishes on its website and social networks.

  1. Attend TEDx events where nutrition is discussed. At DKV we have started to sponsor them because we believe that these meetings, whose philosophy is to transmit the best “ideas worth spreading” are a very appropriate scenario to share information about the importance of healthy eating and how to carry it out. For this reason, we have given our support to the TEDx Malagueta, TEDx Vitoria, TEDx Tarragona and many more that will come later.

At DKV we want you to take good care of yourself. Providing you with enough information to maintain a healthy diet and life is essential to achieve it. Because we know you have a lot to take care of: your health.

Exhibition “SinAzú”


In this same line, DKV sponsors the exhibition “”. It is an artistic project that aims to show, through photography, the amount of sugar that many of the foods we consume habitually have in their composition .

Knowing the actual percentage of sugar contained in the food we eat every day is very necessary. More and more studies have linked the high consumption of this substance with the risk of suffering from chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, coronary and hepatic diseases. 

Do you know how much sugar you consume daily ?

The Multipurpose Hall of the DKV Tower hosts the exhibition “Without Sugar” from April 8 to June 24. The sample consists of several photographs that reflect the amount of sugar that, without realizing it, you eat in your day to day.


A can of soda contains an amount of sugar equivalent to ten cubes of this substance. A yogurt, the equivalent of four and some ribs with barbecue sauce, 80 grams of sugar, that is, the same as about twenty cubes. Did you know?

Most people do not know and are not aware of all the negative effects that excessive consumption of sugar has on our body.

For these reasons, the objective of the exhibition “Without Sugar” is to make sure that, through photographs, you know the amount of sugar you drink , on a daily basis, without even realizing it. And it is that this substance is in the composition of many more products than you think.

Knowing the percentage of sugar in each of the foods we eat is extremely important, since, more and more studies , relate the high consumption of this substance with the risk of suffering from chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, coronary and liver diseases .

So, do not think about it! Visit the exhibition “Without Sugar” and do not let something so sweet come to embitter your days.

The exhibition will be in the Multipurpose Room of the DKV Tower of Zaragoza from April 8 to June 24. Do not miss it!


We want to help you improve your diet and reduce your sugar consumption

At DKV we want you to take good care of yourself. To know more about the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and know how to carry it out, in addition to the exhibition “Without Sugar”, we sponsor TEDx events in which nutrition is discussed.

Last February, we were the main sponsors of one of the “biggest” TEDx events in Spain, the TEDxMalagueta , which brought together more than 900 attendees .

Following the philosophy of the popular TED talks, the TEDx program aims to convey the best “ideas worth spreading”.

TEDxMalagueta welcomed the reflections of tennis coach Toni Nadal, actor Álex O’Dogherty, the prestigious nutritionist and blogger, Aitor Sánchez and the transplant coordinator of the Hospital Clínico, Fernando Segura , among others.

DKV sponsored this event considering it a very appropriate scenario to share information about the importance of healthy eating and how to carry it out. A subject that we should all know in depth to be able to improve our health and our well-being .

Sugar and running

The sugar needed for running will be achieved with the fair consumption of complex carbohydrates within a balanced diet and with good hydration


The sugar is highly questioned lately, as there are nutritionists and dieticians who believe that consume generally much more sugar than we need , warning that the added sugar is very bad for our health.

But what about the athletes, and more specifically, the runners ? Runners work hard in their sport, recording endless miles of speed work, slopes and long runs. Many runners work just as hard to maintain proper nutrition for sports performance, avoiding foods such as fat and sugar. However, sugar is the body’s preferred source of fuel for running. Consuming the right types of sugar can improve your performance and give you the energy you need to travel a distance.

Next, we will see the following points:

  1. Running requires sugar
  2. Sugars for better running performance
  3. When and how much to eat

Running requires sugar

The running predominantly uses carbohydrates as fuel. All the carbohydrates we eat are made up of sugars that are first converted into glucose in our blood and then stored in our muscles as glycogen . Glycogen provides fuel for aerobic activities such as running. To run long distances and achieve optimal performance, runners must complete muscle glycogen stores with a high-carbohydrate diet.

We must distinguish in the needs of sugar, according to the runner is in the preparation phase or in the competition phase.

During the preparation phase , the same amount of simple sugars is recommended for the runner as for the rest of the population, that is, a maximum of 5% of the total calories. 

In the competition stage, it can not be generalized, since the amount of sugar advisable, will depend on the type of running, the race that is practiced, and also the weight and physical characteristics of each runner.

Yes it is true that when it is a training or a competition of more than 90 minutes duration it is advisable to have an extra contribution of carbohydrates.

Sugars for better running performance

There are three main types of sugar: monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides

  • Monosaccharides , including fructose found in honey and galactose found in milk.
  • Disaccharides , including sucrose, a combination of glucose and fructose that makes up table sugar; lactose, the sugar found in milk composed of glucose and galactose; maltose, a product of starch digestion;
  • Polysaccharides or starches . Simple carbohydrates high in glucose will give you energy before running, since glucose can be stored immediately in the muscles as glycogen.

Foods such as fruits , potatoes and cereals are high in glucose and provide runners with immediate energy before the start. While whole grains are an important part of a runner’s diet, fiber in whole grains may be difficult for some runners to digest before training. Therefore, runners may prefer to eat white bread, rice or pasta as a pre-meal. It is good to combine carbohydrates with a small amount of fat and protein, such as butter, for greater satiety and energy during the race. You have to avoid unhealthy sugars like cookies, or cakes with high fructose content, since these can negatively affect the performance of the race.

There are products such as yogurt and custard, soft drinks, ice cream , some desserts, etc., which contain a high amount of sugars that is negative for both an athlete and a person who is not.

When and how much to eat

The time and size of the snack before work will be slightly different for each individual, but a good rule of thumb is to eat 150 to 200 calories an hour before running. If you are going to run for more than an hour, you can choose to wear sports or chewable gels. These products have a high content of simple sugars so you can feed yourself while you run without disturbing digestion.

As we can see, the intake of sugar in its proper measure is indicated, but outside of the indicated cases one must be cautious and ask an expert to solve any doubt.

Brown sugar and white sugar: Discover the differences

Neither white sugar nor brown sugar brings benefits. Unrefined brown sugar provides minerals, but its contribution is not significant


You can buy unrefined brown sugar instead of refined white sugar thinking you’re buying a healthier sugar. But unfortunately, brown sugar, whether raw or refined, has few benefits with respect to white sugar in the health section. The main benefits of brown sugar are its appearance, a molasses flavor and containing some more minerals.

The white sugar only gives us empty calories, it is rich in calories but provides no nutritional value to our diet. It is a product extracted from sugar cane or beet and then refined. It is the purest sugar , because it has 99 percent sucrose.

Regarding brown sugar , we must distinguish between the so-called brown sugar and whole cane. Brown sugar is refined white sugar to which molasses extract is added. The integral cane is manufactured directly from the juices of sugar cane and is not refined. But although, the unrefined brown sugar provides minerals (potassium, iron, sodium, magnesium and calcium) and vitamins (mainly vitamin B, while white sugar only provides empty calories , this does not mean that brown sugar is healthier than The blanquilla, on the other hand, is a problem, because when we consider it healthier, we add it to our diet, as it is consumed in small quantities, it is not a source of those nutrients and yet it does have a sugar content similar to white sugar.

The consumption of sugar in excess gives rise to various types of diabetes, which involves an increase in the level of blood glucose .

Brown sugar manufacturing process

The raw sugar , which appears brown, undergoes less processing than white sugar or brown sugar. After the manufacturers remove the juice from the sugarcane, they boil the juice and filter it. Turning the crystals in a centrifuge produces the raw sugar crystals, which contain molasses. The white table sugar or is subjected to further processing and granulation to make the crystals are thinner; This eliminates the molasses. Brown sugar is refined white sugar with added molasses. The turbinado sugar is raw sugar with only the molasses washed.


Raw sugar has thicker crystals than refined white or brown sugar, which gives the product a more organic appearance. This may interest you aesthetically, since it gives the appearance of a more “natural” product. In some foods, brown sugar is added to the color of the finished product.


Both raw and brown sugar contain a few more minerals than refined white sugar, but only because they contain molasses. Although brown sugar offers a small amount of calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium in its sweetener, the amounts are too small to have a real health benefit. A serving of one teaspoon of brown sugar supplies only 0.02 milligrams of iron, for example, a minute amount of the daily requirement of 8 milligrams for men and 18 milligrams for women in adulthood.


The molasses in the brown and raw sugar gives it a slightly different flavor, which could be a benefit if you like the taste of the molasses. Brown sugar and unrefined sugar contain between 5 and 10 percent molasses, while darker brown sugars contain the highest amounts.

In conclusion, we could advise you not to eat too much sugar , white or brown. The best way to keep sugar at its proper level is to perform physical exercise and follow the dietary recommendations that specialists indicate for diabetes.

Diabetes mellitus in children

Diabetes is a chronic disease that can affect children and adolescents. Its diagnosis is usually a hard blow for the family and the little ones.


In the blink of an eye your routines become different. Diabetic children, thanks to current advances, can lead a practically normal life, though, with some special care. We will discover the care to follow when a child has diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes mellitus what is it?

It is estimated that there are 143 million people in the world with diabetes. The WHO considers that 50% of people who have diabetes are undiagnosed.

In Spain it is estimated that there are 29,000 children under 15 years of age with diabetes mellitus and each year there are about 1,100 new cases.

Diabetes mellitus is its scientific name. Mellitus come from the Latin and means “sweet or honey” and diabetes , meaning that it “passes through or is eliminated”. And why this curious name? Because diabetics have a high level of sugar or very high glucose in the blood and part of this glucose is eliminated in the urine. The doctors of the antiquity, when they suspected this disease, as they did not have analytical, tested the urine. If it was sweet, it was that the body eliminated sugar and, therefore, the patient had diabetes mellitus.

All symptoms of diabetes are a direct cause of high blood sugar levels.

Types of diabetes mellitus

There are two types of diabetes . Although in children the most frequent is type I, it is increasingly being diagnosed in children and adolescents.

  • Type I diabetes
    • It is an autoimmune disease where the body itself destroys the cells of the pancreas that make insulin (pancreatic beta cells), therefore, it makes us unable to metabolize glucose. The damage is irreversible and causes type I or juvenile diabetes, since its diagnosis is frequent to appear in childhood. Its treatment is to administer the insulin that the organism does not manufacture. Insulin is applied subcutaneously.
  • Type II diabetes
    • A few years ago this was the typical diabetes of obese adults. The increase in childhood and juvenile obesity is justifying this increase in the diagnosis of insulin resistance or type II diabetes. It is a multisystemic disorder of heterogeneous nature, in which genetic and environmental factors intervene. Its prevalence has increased in the pediatric age in recent years, in parallel with the increase in obesity. It is characterized by insulin resistance associated with progressive dysfunction of pancreatic cells. In general, the treatment is not giving insulin, because the body makes it, but changes in lifestyle (diet, exerciseand weight loss) and pharmacological treatments that help eliminate insulin resistance. If the disease progresses, administration of insulin may be necessary.

What causes diabetes mellitus?

Insulin is a hormone that is made in a gland called the pancreas. The pancreas is located in the abdomen, behind the stomach and helps in digestion secreting pancreatic juices and also produces insulin depending on the amount of glucose in the blood.

After the intake of food, blood glucose levels rise. At this time, the function of a healthy pancreas is to release insulin so that this glucose (the fuel of the cells) is “introduced” into the body’s cells. Insulin is the key that enables cells to obtain the fuel needed to create energy and perform their functions.

If the insulin is insufficiently produced ( type I diabetes ) or the cells are unable to recognize it ( type II diabetes or insulin resistance), the glucose can not get into the cells, it is not used and it increases its concentration in blood and urine, in an attempt to eliminate the “excess”. The fundamental consequence is that the functioning of the cells is impaired due to lack of energy.

All the symptoms of diabetes derive from this situation.

Type I diabetes mellitus in children: Symptoms and diagnosis

In all medical examinations the following question is very typical: What diagnostic suspicion does a patient have with polydipsia, polyphagia and polyuria?

Let’s decipher the question.

Children with diabetes usually have these symptoms:

  • Polyuria:
    • The child urinates many times and in large quantities. The need to urinate occurs even at night (nocturia). It is very typical for children to start wetting the bed at night when they were, previously, continents.
  • Polydipsia:
    • The child is very thirsty and drinks lots of fluids. This thirst is to compensate for the loss of water through urine.
  • Polyphagia:
    • The child is very hungry and eats much more than usual.
  • Weight loss without dieting.
  • Fatigue and fatigue.

These symptoms are very typical in the patient with a diabetic debut and are due to the fact that the increase in blood glucose (blood sugar) pathologically wants to be eliminated by the kidney (this is called glycosuria: presence of sugar in the urine). In order for glucose to be eliminated in the urine it has to be dissolved in large quantities of water, which is why the body demands a greater intake of water. This is the reason for the increase in thirst and urine in the child.

In addition, since there is not enough insulin, the cells can not use glucose as fuel and the signal that the organism sends is of greater energy requirements, that is, a sign that it is “hungry”. This is the cause of increased appetite and food intake.

But, no matter how much the child eats, the cells still lack energy and they have to find a “plan B” to obtain it: extract energy from body fat. This causes unexplained weight loss, fatigue (despite eating so much) and the elimination by urine of waste substances called ketone bodies. These ketone bodies, moreover, cause a very typical fruity breath odor.

The presence of any of the symptoms described justifies a visit to your pediatrician.

The pediatrician quickly suspects the presence of type I diabetes. Usually the family consults in two or three weeks after the onset of the first symptoms. The diagnosis is simple: the blood glucose is measured (glucose in blood), and if it is higher than 200 mg / dl, we have the diagnosis.

Treatment of diabetes mellitus in children

After the diagnosis of diabetes and after starting insulin treatment, some children may have a temporary improvement. The needs to administer external insulin decrease significantly. This is due to the pancreas recovers slightly and begins to produce some insulin.

This remission phase is not presented by all children and is rare in children under three years of age. 

After the diagnosis, the specialist indicated to evaluate the child and start the blood glucose controls and the insulin treatment is the infant endocrinologist.
