Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used to substitute sugar in food and drink products.


Aspartame is said to have the following beneficial properties:

  • low-calorie
  • 200 times sweeter than sucrose
  • enhance and extend flavor
  • non-contributory to tooth decay
  • helpful to diabetes patients
  • helpful in weight management


Online sources suggest a linkage between aspartame and various health problems including cancer, seizures, mood changes, and headaches, however research suggests that aspartame is not linked to any of these things.

Consult a doctor if you have questions about consuming aspartame.
