Sucralose consists of lower calories and has high sweetness as compared to normal sugar hence it is required in lower quantities as compared to normal sugar. In addition, a variety of studies have indicated that using artificial Sucralose detaches the sweet flavor from calories, which might result in consuming too many high-calorie foods with a sweet flavor when combined with artificial sweeteners, which further contributes to weight gain. Further evidence that artificial, or nonnutritive, Sucralose may counteract impacts on metabolism, gut bacteria, and hunger comes from the extensive and rising consumption of artificial sweeteners like sucralose. Because it contains no calories, high-intensity Sucralose is now becoming acknowledged as a viable strategy for reducing the rise in prevalence of obesity and overweight in humans. Sucralose is regarded as a low-calorie sweetener because it has few or no calories. It reduces the number of calories and carbohydrates in food and beverages by substituting sugar. In addition, low-calorie sweeteners have a stronger sweetness than table sugar and are therefore used in much fewer amounts.

This is anticipated to increase the demand for sweeteners among food & beverage producers in emerging countries.
