Aspartame's Safety is Reconfirmed by EFSA
The European Food Safety Authority published on 10th December its opinion on aspartame, reconfirming its safety and the fact that aspartame, and its digested components, bring nothing new to our diet.

Aspartame is made from two amino acids, the building blocks of protein that occur widely in everyday foods and drinks. When we consume products with aspartame, it is digested to small amounts of common dietary components. Apart from an excellent sweet taste without calories, aspartame brings nothing new to our diet.
