Did you know that low-calorie sweeteners are used in hundreds of foods and beverages? Despite this, you may have read or heard that there’s something “unusual” or “unsafe” about them – don’t believe the hype. Contrary to internet myths, low-calorie sweeteners are safe.
In fact, they have been approved by regulatory agencies around the world, including the World Health Organization, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), as safe for use in foods and beverages. And, as recently as December 2013, EFSA once again reaffirmed that aspartame is safe for consumption.
