Study confirms that low-calorie sweeteners are helpful in weight control
Date:2/8/2008

hase insulin release in humans following the ingestion of aspartame, as demonstrated by Abdallah et al (1997) and not referenced here.

  • A recent study, also based on rats, showed that any flavor associated with a lack of calories led to overeating even salt. However, that effect was observed only in very young rats (4 weeks) and disappeared 4 weeks later.

  • Findings in animal (e.g., rat) studies are not necessarily applicable to humans. Generally, clinical studies with humans follow animal studies. The present study went backwards.

  • Some have blamed sweet tooth and sugar calories for rising obesity rates. Others now blame sweet tooth and the absence of sugar calories for rising obesity rates. The human desire for sweet taste is an innate reflex that is present at birth: it is not learned, it is not acquired, it is not conditioned and it is not going away anytime soon.

This study oversimplifies the causes of obesity, said Beth Hubrich, a dietitian with the Calorie Control Council, an association representing low- and reduced-calorie foods and beverages. The causes of obesity are multi-factorial. Although surveys have shown that there has been an increase in the use of sugar-free foods over the years, portion sizes of foods have also increased, physical activity has decreased and overall calorie intake has increased, she added.

Several studies conducted in humans have shown that low-calorie sweeteners and the products that contain them can be useful tools in weight control. For example, a study conducted by Dr. George Blackburn and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition investigated whether the addition of aspartame to a multidisciplinary weight control program would improve weight loss and long-term control of body weight in obese women. One hundred sixty-eight obese women aged 20 to 60 years were studied over a two-year period. The researchers found t
