  Purpose
Several sugar-replacement sweeteners are currently on the market, including saccharine (ex. Sweet'N Low), aspartame (ex. Equal), and sucralose (ex. Splenda). The purpose of this study is to examine wether non caloric sweeteners affects how well the body works to control blood sugar. The study includes detailed blood sugar testing after drinking liquids that may contain sucralose. The investigators hypothesize that drinking liquids with sucralose will effect the amounts of specific appetite-affecting substances naturally produced by the body.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Effect of Sucralose on Insulin Concentration (Area Under the Curve; AUC) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    we will measure plasma insulin concentrations during a 5-hour modified Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (mOGTT) administered 10 minutes after subjects consume sucralose in water or an equal volume of water without sucralose (control condition).Plasma insulin concentrations were measured at 20, 15, 10, 6, and 2 min before and at 10, 20, 30, 40, 60, 90, 120, 150,180, 240, and 300 min after ingesting 75g of glucose. All these data collected were used to create the AUC curve.

Study Completion Date: October 2012
Primary Completion Date: February 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: water-sucralose
Subjects in this group drank "water" 10 min before drinking a glucose load on their first oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and drank "sucralose" 10 min before drinking a glucose load on their second OGTT. The two OGTT were separated on average by 1 week (i.e. washout was approximately 1 week).
Other: Water
60 ml of water were drank 10 min before doing a OGTT
Other: Sucralose
60 ml of 2 millimolar sucralose were drank 10 min before doing a OGTT
Experimental: sucralose-water
Subjects in this group drank "sucralose" 10 min before drinking a glucose load on their first OGTT and drank "water" 10 min before drinking a glucose load on their second OGTT. The two OGTT were separated on average by 1 week (i.e. washout was approximately 1 week).
Other: Water
60 ml of water were drank 10 min before doing a OGTT
Other: Sucralose
60 ml of 2 millimolar sucralose were drank 10 min before doing a OGTT
