Today, there are many different kinds of artificial sweeteners, but the one that seemed to start it all is aspartame. It began in the 1965 and it is still being used today. As an artificial sweetener, it is considered to be a sugar substitute because it did not contain sugar and was therefore better for you.

However, over time people have experienced its side effects. People usually don’t call it aspartame today which is why it is not really known anymore. It used to be called Nutrasweet. People used aspartame in foods and drinks in order to make them sweet. However, it is probably healthier to stay away from them and use regular sugar in moderate quantities instead of aspartame or any of the others out on the market.

Aspartame is one of the most common artificial sweeteners in use today. It is sold under the brand names Nutra Sweet and Equal. Aspartame is made by joining together the amino acids aspartic acid and phenylalanine. Aspartame is used in countless foods and beverages because it is about 200 times sweeter than sugar, so much less is used to reach the same level of sweetness.

There is concern that the use of aspartame can cause many health problems, including cancer, and this has resulted in a certain caution about the product. In the United States, artificial sweeteners are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. It is essential that these products are tested for safety and approved by the FDA before they are used.
