What is PAL sugarfree sweetener? A friend of mine would like me to buy it and send it to him in Japan. I was told that it is cheaper in the USA. I would love to send him some and then bring a bunch with me when I go back to Japan in October. I have looked it up on the internet, and I was only able to find that it is in Coke Light, and it is possibly "Nutrasweet'. I thought perhaps it was somethng like "Splenda". Thanks a bunch!🙂 (I thought I should mention that he is diabetic.)

Yes, it's NutraSweet.

PalSweet/NutraSweet was developed jointly by NutraSweet Kelco of the US and Ajinomoto of Japan. PalSweet is the registered trade name for the product in Japan.

Thanks for the help everyone!🌹 I just can't imagine that Nutrasweet (asparatame) would be cheaper in the US. Now at least, I know exactly what it is I am trying to purchase.
