Did you know that low- and no-calorie sweeteners have been approved by regulatory agencies around the world? Agencies including the World Health Organization, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have deemed low- and no-calorie sweeteners as safe for use in foods and beverages.
A substantial body of research, including human clinical trials, also support the safety and efficacy of low- and no-calorie beverages. The CHOICE study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, confirms that low- and no-calorie beverages can be an important tool in helping reduce calories. Additionally, a study published earlier this year in the journal Obesity showed that participants who drank low- and no- calorie beverages versus water alone not only lost weight and kept it off, but reported feeling less hungry.
Even leading health organizations, like the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, agree that the moderate consumption of beverages with low- and no-calorie sweeteners is perfectly safe. For more information on low- and no-calorie beverages, click here.
