    There is chlorine in splenda. Chlorine's chemical structure makes it very reactive and because it's so reactive, my guess would be this is why it sizzles in coffee. The heat from the coffee will likely intensify the reaction as well. Chlorine is a very useful substance to a chemist because it's so reactive and is commonly used in making things that humans can use or consume. :

    Because it is a nasty chemical.

    I like to say sucralose, not Splenda, because that is what Splenda is. And it is in a lot of stuff Sadly, the package doesn't have to say Splenda, or diet, to have sucralose in it. You have to read labels. So, you might still be using it and don't even know it!

    A lot of people, including myself, have gotten/are getting sick from it.

    Sucralose is (really a) poison. It ruined five years of my life. I had a laundry list of medical problems while taking it. I went to several doctors. I had a dozen different tests. I was told that I had a number of different problems. I was on different medication for many years.

    The slogan, "Made from sugar..." is very misleading. Splenda might be made from sugar, but it is far from sugar. The resulting chemical is a class of chemicals called organochloride. Organochlorides are typically poisonous.

    carbon monoxide - made from oxygen so its like a breath of fresh air.

    Source(s): My source is me. I have personally experienced the effects of sucralose and can report first hand of its dangers.
