Contrary to what is sometimes reported in the media, low-calorie sweeteners, which are found in thousands of foods and beverages, have been proven time and again to be a safe ingredient. Decades of scientific research and regulatory agencies around the world support this position. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) both acknowledge this fact. Not only are these sweeteners safe, but independent organizations such as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics also support that they can be an effective tool in both weight loss and weight maintenance.
