Aspartame contains three main components: Methanol, phenylalanine, aspartic acid. Because the amount of aspartame in food is MG, the amount of phenylalanine produced by metabolism is also low, generally does not have a significant impact on the human body.
Studies have pointed out that because of the extremely low amount of aspartame, very small amounts of methanol intake do not harm the human body. In addition, there are doubts about whether aspartic acid in aspartame can cause brain damage, endocrine disorders, or tumors. In fact, more aspartic acid will be consumed from the general diet.
Therefore, although there are questions, but also because of the low intake of aspartame, generally still think that will not cause major harm. China's Ministry of Health, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have repeatedly tested the safety of aspartame, fully confirming its edible safety. Dr Tarantino, director of additive safety at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has made it clear: "So far, we think aspartame is safe this conclusion was obtained through a detailed examination of more than 100 experimental and clinical safety studies.
” Lalf Watton Ralphwalton, a therapist at Northeastern Ohio Medical School, released an independent survey in 1996 that industrial-funded research showed aspartame had no health risks, while 84 of 92 independent studies showed health risks. The study was presented to the 60-minute column and attracted wide attention online. However, the analysis found that Lalf Watton ignored at least 50 peer-reviewed security investigation reports, and that the "independent study" he claimed was actually a letter to the editor, a case report, a review article, a book chapter rather than a publicly published paper.
and the Aspartame information Service, funded by Ajinomoto (the main producer and supplier of aspartame), countered that most of the publications cited by Walton that were critical of aspartame did not address aspartame or failed to draw negative conclusions, some of which were not peer-reviewed, and some of which were grapevine or replicas. There have been rumors on the internet that low-calorie sweeteners like aspartame can cause cancer and pose a threat to human health.
But there is no evidence of any relationship between sweeteners and human cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute, and the American Diabetes Society says it is safe to eat high-calorie, low-calorie or calorie-free sweetener products. Low-calorie or calorie-free sweeteners actually also help control and maintain weight.
A trial of more than 1000 adults has shown that people who eat low-calorie, sugar-free foods and beverages have better diets, get more vitamins and minerals and eat healthier diets while eating less calories. Low-calorie or calorie-free sweeteners help control and maintain weight. A trial of more than 1000 adults showed that people who ate low-calorie, sugar-free foods and beverages had more quality meals. Aspartame has undergone more than 200 scientific experiments and has been shown to be a very safe low-calorie sweetener. The sweetener has a history of more than 20 years of use and has been approved in more than 100 countries around the world. After a comprehensive test of its safety by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the food safety of aspartame has been confirmed again. It's just that aspartame contains phenylalanine, so people with phenylketonuria are unfit to eat the sweetener, a disease that is rare.
