Many artificial sweetners break down chemicaly when heated and therefore can not be used in cooking. They are no longer sweet when this happens. Specificaly those containing aspartame (Equal, Nutrasweet and the like).

Chinpoko, SPLENDA is the sweetener that doesn't break down under moderate cooking heat (unlike Aspartame). Supposedly, it also is less toxic to some people than Aspartame. Splenda has the sweet genuine sugar taste because it is basically the same old sugar molecule with three of the carbon atoms replaced by chlorine to make it less digestible.
Because it doesn't have a chemical breakdown like Aspartame, it is also advertised as being less toxic as well.
