Obligatory note: I own stock in Spherix (Symbol SPEX), a competitor in the sugar substitute market. The stock is in the tank right now. If these guys could ever get their shit together, I think they could make a run at Splenda. It's currently trading under $3 per share.

Anyway, the Splenda link. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=514&e=9&u=/ap/20041203/ap_on_he_me/fit_splenda_shortage

Ugh.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

This has the potential to suck, bigtime. Splenda is wonderful stuff.

I've been researching it a bit, and there is some worry about Splenda being bad for you because of the chlorine that is being put into the sugar... I'll see if I can find that link again. It was from a site bashing Aspartame (Nutrasweet, Equal)- but they also were not happy with Sucralose (Splenda). I was trying to find any info on Tagatose, which is what Spherix markets.

//edit: This guy really doesn't like sugar substitutes - here's an article against Tagatose: http://www.wnho.net/tagatose.htm



Hmm... apparently they noticed this article as well at the SPEX forum over on Yahoo.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to lose all of my money I've put into this stock. UGh.

Hang with it...money is going to go the other way just to test the water on "alternatives". Never underestimate the investors going for the next "quick fix betting on others getting a quick fix" (i.e Vioxx). Then sell. The only way you lose dough is if someone files Chapter (insert here). Never give up until...well - how do you spell "federal investigation"? After all, I've been betting on eggs for years, which went from good, to kill you, to make you "immune", to kill you, to - rinse, repeat cycle. We still eat eggs. Never give up, until the above happens. CLASS ACTION...yikes! I can't even type that with a straight face
