Evidence-Based Analysis of Aspartame Research
Date:6/2/2009

Questions Put to Rest

CHICAGO, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- A just-published research review concludes that, media speculation aside, using aspartame as a sweetener has no effect on appetite or food intake. The same evaluation reaffirmed what regulators and health authorities have said many times before: aspartame is not associated with adverse effects for the population at large.

"The conclusions should not be a surprise to health professionals, as they reflect what both science and common sense have told us for years," said Brendan Naulty, president of Ajinomoto North America. "Aspartame is a safe and potentially valuable tool for helping consumers manage their calories."

The evaluation, posted on the ADA Evidence Analysis Library web site, answers several recently raised questions concerning aspartame. For example:

  • Some have claimed that low calorie sweeteners like aspartame could have a "rebound" effect that leads people to have more of an appetite or to eat more food. The analysis found, "There is good evidence that aspartame does not affect appetite or food intake." This consensus statement was given a "grade 1," the highest grade in the EAL scale.
  • Others have implied, despite the implausibility, that low calorie sweeteners actually "make" people gain weight. The ADA expert work group looked at studies in adults and concluded that using aspartame in the context of a reduced calorie diet does not affect weight and may be associated with increased weight loss. This body of research also was given a grade 1.
  • For years, misinformation about negative effects of aspartame has proliferated on the Internet. The committee evaluated peer-reviewed research from the scientific literature on this topic and concluded, "Aspartame consumption is not associated with adverse effects in the general population."
