With all of the information on the internet, it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not.  When it comes to low-calorie sweeteners, there are decades of research that support that they are safe for use in foods and beverages.  In fact, aspartame has been tested continuously since its introduction and its safety has been consistently re-affirmed, even as recently as this week by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

But don’t just take it from us, listen to the experts!  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 around the globe have reviewed low-calorie sweeteners and found them safe for use.  Furthermore, the American Medical Association, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) and the American Diabetes Association also recognize them as safe.

In addition to their safety, decades of scientific research shows that they can be an effective tool in both weight loss and weight management.  So go ahead - enjoy a low-calorie beverage today!
