Aldi - a warning.

When waiting in line with fellow knuckle draggers at Aldi to pay for your cheap cycle gear, on no account look at a twin pack of these by the till:

and think "hmmmm - two small packs of mints, they would be nice to scoff in the car". Don't add them to your pile of shirts. Just walk away and leave them be. I didn't spot the sugarfree logo and have now experienced the effects of sucralose on my intestinal tract for the first time. It was not a pleasant experience. Not at all.

I looked up the side effects of sucralose and all I can say is that, at least on my particular digestive flora, they are severely understated and rather fast acting.

To make it worse, the mints are a twin pack. While eating half of the second pack some time later, somewhat mystified by my earlier experience, I looked at the label and light dawned, but too late. Half a pack turned out to be easily enough for a repeat performance.

[edit] I may be hasty in blaming sucralose as it is a secondary sweetener in these mints. Looking at the ingredients, the main one is isomalt, which has the same side effects.

I eat sucralose with impunity.

I gather the effects are restricted to "some people" and it depends on the nature of your gut flora as to whether they happen at all. I appear to be one such person :sad:
