If you're looking for scant traces of vitamins C and E, here's where you'll find them.

Here’s the latest way to boost antioxidant intake. It’s also the most ridiculous.


Splenda has introduced a new line of products. They’re called Splenda Essentials. A single packet contains 20 percent of recommended daily intake of vitamins C and E.

I’m sure many people use five Splenda packets per day. So that’s all you need of these two vitamins!

Well… That’s according to the FDA. Does it sound absurdly oversimplified? Oh my yes. And it is.

I hope nobody really believes there’s more than a scant trace of vitamins in a Splenda packet. But I guess anything is possible. After all, the FDA seems to think that a scant trace is all you need for proper nourishment.
