    “Depending on source”, you’re claiming an “average” glycemic index of 80? Are you crazy? Cite the sources!! Sources I check give it a rating of ZERO. In order for 80 to be an average you’d have to have an index of 160 from at least one source. Since the max is 100, I’m not sure where you’re getting that from.

    Hello Zack! Thanks for pointing out this out. It was not written clearly and will be fixed. Now on to your question. Many people believe that Splenda only contains sucralose. And sucralose does appear to have a GI of zero per most sources. However Splenda also contains dextrose (GI of ~100) and maltodextrin (GI of ~130) as the first two primary ingredients. So the idea that Splenda the product has a GI of zero is absurd at best. (FYI: ~ = around)
