Frequently asked questions about the sweetener aspartame

Is aspartame safe?

Regulators and scientists have tested aspartame for more than three decades, in more than 100 studies, with the same result: aspartame is safe to use. In fact, the FDA Commissioner noted upon approval that "few compounds have withstood such detailed testing and repeated, close scrutiny, and the process through which aspartame has gone should provide the public with additional confidence of its safety." In addition to FDA approval, a number of health groups, including the American Medical Association, the American Diabetes Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Nutrition, support the use of aspartame.
