The use of sweeteners is a strategy for reducing sugar consumption. Sucralose is one of the most used, being described as safe by different reference entities, such as European Food Safety Authority and Food & Drug Administration. But since the publications by these entities are prior to 2017, it is important to update scientific knowledge. A search was made in the Pubmed database with the term “sucralose AND health”, for the last 5 years. The main topics addressed are routes associated with blood glucose management, weight gain, metabolic syndrome and intestinal microbiota, with results in general inconclusive. Studies are emerging that raise concerns about exposure in the uterus and possible insecurity of sucralose. Even so, based on current evidence, it´s not possible to assess that sucralose leads to negative health effects, when the ADI is respected. But its use/consumption should be moderate, since the long-term effects are not fully known.
