Is sucralose bad for your gut?

An investigation into the effects on our intestinal flora

Sucralose is a sweetener that has become increasingly common in our foods in recent years. Many people wonder what sucralose does in our gut and what effects it can have on our gut flora. In this article, we will look at the effects of sucralose on our gut flora and find out what foods we can eat to support healthy gut flora.

Why are we finding more and more sucralose in our foods?

Sucralose is being used more and more in our foods because it is calorie-free and has a sweet taste at the same time. Therefore, it is often used as an additive in light products and other foods to enhance the sweet taste and save calories. It is also used in some beverages and candies to enhance the sweet taste.

Nearly all manufacturers of drinkable meals use sucralose.

What does sucralose do to our intestinal flora?

It is known that sucralose is not completely broken down in our bodies and ends up in the intestines. It is believed that sucralose can affect the intestinal flora by reducing the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut. Some studies have also shown that sucralose can affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. But what are the consequences of disturbed intestinal flora?
Disrupted gut flora can lead to a number of health problems. Some of the most common problems include constipation, bloating, indigestion, malaise and fatigue. When gut flora is out of balance, it can also result in the body being less able to absorb nutrients, which can lead to an overall weakening of the immune system.

What foods support healthy gut flora?

To maintain healthy gut flora, we should eat as balanced as possible, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, fermented foods, and healthy fats like rapeseed-oil. We should also be careful about adding sugar and other sweeteners to our diet and try to use natural sweeteners such as agave or honey. In addition, we should also make sure to drink enough fluids to support healthy intestinal flora.
