Here at Sip & Savor, we regularly share facts about the ingredients in our products with our readers.   And, low- and no-calorie sweeteners are no exception.

According to decades of scientific research, low-calorie sweeteners, such as aspartame, have been proven to be an effective tool in both weight loss and weight management.

Also, aspartame has been extensively tested and declared safe by governmental and independent organizations all over the world. Both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) have found it to be safe for use in foods and beverages.

In fact, EFSA reaffirmed that aspartame is safe for consumption by the general population as recently as December 2013. This opinion is based on the most comprehensive risk assessments of aspartame to- date.
