The European Food Safety Authority says the artificial sweetener aspartame is safe at the levels currently used in food and drinks. Aspartame has been used in soft drinks and other low-calorie or sugar-free foods for more than 25 years.
Alicja Mortensen, PhD, of the authority says in a news release that the study is “one of the most comprehensive risk assessments of aspartame ever undertaken.”
The authority says it reviewed all available scientific research on aspartame. It included both animal and human studies and published and unpublished research.
