Sucralose is sold under the brand name "Splenda"  and is available next to
Equal in grocery stores.  It is a one teaspoon for one teaspoon substitute
for table sugar.  Note, however, that it is somewhat pricey.  Some companies
have started to use it in products.  For example, Diet Rite drinks are now
made with sucralose.  More companies will gradually start to use this
product as more people complain of the side effects of NutraSweet.
