# Thread: How much Sucralose is in Xtend per serving?

1. ## How much Sucralose is in Xtend per serving?

Just wondering as some of us have sensitivities to artificial sweeteners.

2. Using my math skills I come up with around 1.3g at the most. So probably around .8 or less? The old formula could've only had .975 at the most. And they removed some sweetener from the formula. This is per scoop. Not sure if Scivation will say exactly, but that's what I come up with.

Those numbers seem high. As a can of diet pop has 40 something mg, which is 0.04g

I just did scoop size minus all the ingredients in there. It's probably way to high. Thought maybe it could've helped, guess not lol.

5. So we going to ask Coca Cola for their secret profile as well on how to make their soda
Know that we took out 200g (yes a half pound) of sweetener in the new formula compared to the old, so you get a new refreshing taste
Addition of Bonded CM and Electrolytes for a better performance,endurance, and recovery product.

How many other companies expose that in their pre/intra/protein products? Think about that! It may make you second guess some products you do take and the amount of sweetener they put in there compared to what you read on the label. The thing is Scivation Specs/Stability tests every product to the exact amount due to Chris Lockwood's standards and how he wants things to run in the new NSF Facility being and making prop 65 compliant products.

I understand you cant give out the recipe but to say that artificial sweetener is the secrete profile of Xtend makes it sound like thats all thats in it. Considering I can pick up a can of cola cola and it tells me how much artificial sweetener is in each can (Coke Zero has 85mg of aspartame and 46mg of acesulfame-potassium). I guess I have Coca Colas secrete profile for making Coke Zero now eh? All I had to do was go on their website to look it up.

A lot of companies actually give out how much artificial sweetener they use. Considering all the hype about it (good and bad).

Xtend could be made in NASA satellite with the worlds highest standards, I dont care if it has artificial sweeteners Im not going to use it without knowing how much is in it. And hearing that the old formula had 200 GRAMS of sweetener is a little crazy...

7. Bump up hopefully I can find a more specific answer

Sir we took OUT 200g from the old formula, I will forward your question to Rob Moran our director of sales (Rob@Scivation.com) and get his hand in this situation.

The best I can do is provide an average of all 6 flavors to you. This means some are higher per serving and some are lower. With the new Xtend formula, you are looking at 16mg of Sucralose per serving. It is correct that we did take out a good amount of artificial flavoring in the new Xtend product versus the old.

Thank you, Bob I don't think I can make Xtend from that do you? Also the words HAD and OLD I know you had 200g of sweetener in the old formula that baffled my mind

I personally find it ridiculous that Bob will not tell me what to buy and from where so that I can make my own Xtend.

Notsrs

Your welcome. In all fairness to Bob, it's really not his place to provide this information. Actually, there are a handful of full-fledged employees at Scivation that are actually privy to this information.

Either way, I hope the information provided helps you to make an informed decision. If there is anything else you need, please feel free to contact me at rob@scivation.com.

Thank you very much for your time and effort Rob. I will continue to learn and expand as much knowledge on these boards as possible.
50 I hope you got the answer you are looking for.

14. Picking up an old thread here, but wondering if Rob or any of the Scivation team can shed some light into how much Acesulfane Potassium is in the current Xtend formula? Have read some pretty nasty things on the sweetener from cancer to cognitive impairment. TIA

You donâ€™t need to take free form aminos anyways so the sweetener is irrelevant.

Why donâ€™t you need to take free form aminos?

Xtend markets products that contain artificial sweeteners as well as products that are sweetened naturally. Acesulfame Potassium helps achieve certain desirable flavor attributes when working with complex bases, including branched-chain amino acids, which can be quite bitter. The amount of acesulfame potassium varies by flavor, but we use the minimum amount necessary to achieve the target flavor profile. Furthermore, acesulfame potassium is an FDA approved food additive and there is a lack of compelling evidence to indicate that it is associated with potentially deleterious health outcomes. However, we know that there are individuals who have concerns with consuming this ingredient which is why we have developed stevia and monk-fruit sweetened options for those who prefer to avoid consuming acesulfame potassium.

We can all agree the sweetener is quite irrelevant at this point my friend.
