Aspartame (NutraSweet) renamed and being sold as a natural sweetener
02-13-2010 9:31 AM

(NaturalNews) In response to growing awareness about the dangers of artificial sweeteners, what does the manufacturer of one of the world's most notable artificial sweeteners do? Why, rename it and begin marketing it as natural, of course. This is precisely the strategy of Ajinomoto, maker of aspartame, which hopes to pull the wool over the eyes of the public with its rebranded version of aspartame, called "AminoSweet".

And how about an FDA aspartame safety study using Rehsus Monkees in which all the monkees started having brain seizures months in to the study, than upon completion of the experiment and the aspartame was withdrawn, the seizures stopped.

Frightening. When Aspartame first came on the market (under the Nutrasweet label) I found out that I was 'sensitive' to it. My Dr. at the time was initially very skeptical but did some tests and found it to be correct. To this day, I have to be very careful about reading labels because it is a hidden ingredient in so many products. Now, when I tell health professionals about it, more and more of them have seen others who can't tolerate it.

Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of differing perspectives?" If not, there's no point in arguing.

The certain products in the market that are "sugar-free", uses these sweeteners as replacement, no?
Geez what are we consuming these days. Sighs

Yup, but I've also noticed products where they have also added the artificial sweeteners as well as having sugar. Different products have started to use the artificial sweeteners but don't have them listed at all unless you look at the ingredients list.

Well, you can dress up a dog like a chicken, but it's still a dog. Yes


Nothing "natural" causes the myriad of reported/documented heath problems that are caused by aspartame toxicity. Nothing. I'm passionate about this subject and have discouraged the use of aspartame containing products, for many years, to anyone who will listen to me. I could go on and on about this, but I'll spare you my triad. Except to say, the government continues to turn turn a blind eye because they are being funded by the very people they allow to freely and happily poison us. It's beyond frightening. It's a horror. It's criminal...on a grand scale. They're greedy, gutless bastards.

Aspartame is wicked evil shit, produced and marketed by THE EVIL GIANT, MONSANTO... and should be outlawed. These lovely people don't just manufacture poisons. They have literally engineered their potatoes to BE a pesticide. That's right. The potato itself IS the pesticide! Think about that next time you lust after a double order of fries. Eek

I gotta say I don't personally know anyone who has lost or even managed to control/maintain their weight with aspartame. And yet they persist in its use convinced it's, in some way, helping them. There are soooo many products that now contain aspartame. Diet soda sales are off the charts! Yet, we have an epidemic of obesity in our country. If it really worked for losing/controlling weight we'd be a tres skinny nation. Yes Seems despite the plethora of diet/weight control products on the market, the most successful route is the age old one....a healthy diet, portion control and exercise. People who have heath issues with weight should see about getting their hormone levels tested...could be outta whack and contributing to or causing the weight problem/gain.

I don't and have never used aspartame and, thankfully, I'm not that fond of soda....diet or not. Consumption of regular soda, alone, can contribute to weight gain. (Most regular sodas contain a whopping 12 teaspoons of sugar per can!) Swoon

I'm not into much that's artificial, especially where my food is concerned. I'm into eating healthy natural whole foods that I prepare myself. Reading labels is necessary for survival. Thank the Goddess that there are some great alternative sweeteners available for people who are diabetic/hypoglycemic, watching their weigh, or who simply want to eat healthier by cutting down on sugar.

For those of you who may be interested in some interesting alternative sweeteners to sugar and aspartame:

There are a number of sugar alcohols (polyols) on the market. They're very useful but it pays to seriously heed the warning about going slow and not consuming large quantities of any type of sugar alcohols, especially at first. Could be...um...highly unpleasant. And if you have any "intestinal issues" I would avoid it altogether.

Mannitol, Sorbitol and Maltitol (especially Maltitol syrup) seem to be the worst culprits when it comes to those issues and the ones most commonly used to sweeten candies and baked goods. Erythritol is the least reactive because it's fermented, (the others are made from hydrogenation), it's high digestive tolerance distinguishes it from some of the other polyols. They also vary greatly as far as glycemic index and sweetness levels. You've still gotta watch it if you're counting calories because though sugar free they aren't calorie free.

One of the nice things about sugar alcohols is they can be substituted in recipes when baking in equal measure to sugar...or used I/2 + 1/2 in equal proportions with sugar to cut down on calories....and used the same way in combination with honey, maple syrup or agave nectar.

This is important... if you have a dog, never feed it xylitol. While this sweetener may be safe and beneficial for people, when it comes to dogs it's another story. They metabolize xylitol very differently than we do, and it can send canine blood sugar plummeting to life-threatening lows in just minutes, followed within 12 to 24 hours by liver failure, which is often fatal. In fact, it's so deadly that as few as three pieces of xylitol-sweetened sugar-free gum can kill a 20 lb. dog.

The FDA finally got their shit together on Stevia. This is an ancient non-caloric sweetener. Until recently it's only been allowed to be labeled/sold as a "dietary supplement" in the USA. Suitable for diabetics and 300 times sweeter than sugar, available in liquid or powdered form, with a somewhat strong lingering licorice after taste. Some people don't mind the after taste but I don't like it, and I think that's why a lot of people looking for a sugar substitute have shied away from it. However, the great news is, the newest ones on the market are sans the licorice after taste!

I use this one from NuNauturals to sweeten liquids. https://nunaturals.com/product/112. About 1/8 to 1/4 tsp does it for 64 oz of iced tea.

Just Like Sugar is an all-natural alternative to chemical sugar substitutes, made from chicory root and orange peels. It has 0 calories, 0 chemicals, 0 gluten and lactose, it's listed as 0 on the glycemic index and has 0 laxative effects.

And another called Lo Han. Also 300x's sweeter than sugar.

Agave is an excellent natural sugar alternative. I've used it for years and love it. You can find it almost anywhere these days. It has a lower glycemic index than sugar, but is not suitable for diabetics. Depending on the source, I've read a glycemic index of 15 to 27. High glycemic index would be 55 or above.

http://www.dvo.com/agave-nectar.html

There's a lot of controversy surrounding the benefits/claims made by those who manufacture and promote sugar alternatives. Whichever you chose, be careful to do your research and treat them with respect.

Just some food for thought. :wink2:
