Time to get the chemistry right

In a recent news story (Bacardi launches spirit with low calorie content, MW April 14), it was stated that sucralose is a “natural-sugar substitute with no caloric content”. Despite your hyphenation, confusion could arise: sucralose is in fact an artificial sweetener that is made from sugar, with no caloric content.
