In December 2013 EFSA published its first full risk assessment of aspartame. The opinion concludes that aspartame and its breakdown products are safe for the general population (including infants, children and pregnant women).

A copy of an explanation of the scientific opinion on aspartame, produced by staff in EFSA’s Food Ingredients and Packaging unit, is available here (PDF, 3.9MB).
