No, LightFull doesn’t contain anything artificial. Splenda® (sucralose) and Equal® (aspartame) are not naturally occurring in any plants or fruits.

And, they are hundreds of times sweeter than sugar so they are blended with dextrose or maltodextrin to reduce the sweetness closer to an equal weight of sugar. Erythritol occurs naturally and is produced naturally, and is used in its pure form.
