Fact: Aspartame is one of the most thoroughly studied food ingredients ever, with more than 200 scientific studies confirming its safety.
Contrary to some urban myths out there on the safety of aspartame, people have safely consumed products containing aspartame for more than thirty years. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) of the World Health Organization (WHO) and regulatory agencies in more than 100 countries have reviewed aspartame and found it safe for use in food and beverages. In addition, independent health organizations such as the American Medical Association, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) and the American Diabetes Association also recognize aspartame as safe.
