Did You Know?
"Recently, a global panel of food safety experts conducted a comprehensive review of scientific literature to assess aspartame's safety status as a nonnutritive sweetener. The verdict: Aspartame is safe for everyday use at current consumption levels. In fact, to reach the acceptable amount, a 150-pound person would have to consume roughly 20 cans (12 ounces each) of diet soda, or almost 100 packets of tabletop sweetener daily, over a lifetime."
