Splenda success results in tight supply

Splenda will be in short supply for food companies in the near future thanks in part by a surge in low-carb diets.

bq. Dieters hoping for a slew of new products with the sugar substitute Splenda may be disappointed next year. That’s because the maker of sucralose, the key ingredient behind the increasingly ubiquitous no-calorie sweetener, is having trouble keeping up with demand.
