The most successful of these is a chemical called aspartame, marketed under brand names like NutraSweet or Equal. It is this sweetener that is found in many so-called diet drinks and foods. “Diabetics and people who are trying to lose weight” are particularly attracted to these artificial sweeteners because of their “low calorie content” (Vendryes). Artificial sugar as a sweeteners has attractive benefits than regular sugar because, they “add no calories to diet” (“Artificial Sweeteners and Other Sugar Substitutes - Mayo Clinic”). In addition, only a fraction is for use for sweetness.
Sacchari... ... middle of paper ... ...tains absolutely no calories! Aspartame is one of the safest artificial sweeteners I researched throughout the whole paper; the most dangerous or unhealthiest was actually sodium cyclamate. Although aspartame cannot or should not be used for cooking and baking because it will break down during the process. Despite all the rumors about aspartame being “the most dangerous artificial sugar out there” many specialists disagree and believe all the drama about aspartame stop because it is completely healthy to consume. I would recommend people that would like to be healthier and want to slow down on eating regular sugar to consume and go buy aspartame because it is very healthy and safe to eat.

Aspartame, one of the most used artificial sweeteners, is drawing controversies over its safety. Aspartame is a solid sweetener used in many commonly consumed, sugar free, food and drinks. There have been consumer complaints over health issues consumers blame on aspartame usage. However, consuming an over-abundance of aspartame can put the human body at health risk. Aspartame, in normal amounts is not proven to cause any health issues.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Aspartame in 1981 for use in tabletop sweeteners and various foods and dry beverage mixes. In 1983, Aspartame was approved for use in carbonated beverages and since then, has been approved for use in any foods and drinks. Aspartame has many benefits. It has a very similar taste to sugar but, unlike sugar, it does not promote tooth decay. Aspartame does not contain many calories so it can help people manage their weight.
It is also important because the candy is wrapped in wrappers, so adding the chemical prevents it from sticking. The perceived quality the candy may get by the addition of the compound is that it gives off a smooth and non-sticky candy. The compound chemically achieves its purpose by first dissolving the sugar with water and glucose syrup. The next step is to boil it to its boiling point. Which will cause the sugars to dissolve and it will prevent sugar crystals to form inside of the hard candy.
Personally, I will not use artificial sweeteners for most of them because some sweeteners can cause more hunger since artificial sweeteners help decrease the amount of calories in beverages. Also, some sweeteners do not substitute sugar that great except for polyols. Polyols would be one of my choices of sweeteners since the sweetness is mildly affected compared to regular sugar. It is perfect for dieting for those who want to keep the regular taste of sugar. Otherwise, sweeteners could cause some weight gain only if you do take it excessively.
