ISA responds to the announcement of a new FSA study on aspartame

2009-07-10 18:28:40

The International Sweeteners Association welcomes the reconfirmation by the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) that it has no concerns about the safety of aspartame.

As FSA’s Chief Scientist emphasised, “The Agency’s view remains that aspartame can be consumed safely and we are not recommending any changes to its current use.”


Aspartame is one of the most thoroughly tested ingredients in the food supply. Its safety has been confirmed repeatedly by independent scientists and regulatory authorities in the , Europe and around the world. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) reconfirmed the safety of aspartame in May 2006 concluding, “There is no need to further review the safety of aspartame”.


Given that the FSA has no concerns about the safety of aspartame, it is surprising that FSA has decided to start work on a new study to address “consumer concerns” and “anecdotal reports”, some of which are based on rumours circulated on the internet by scaremongers.


Aspartame, which is made from two amino acids, is digested just like any other protein and its components are treated by the body in exactly the same way as the same components in foods like meat, fish, eggs, milk and fruit juice. It tastes like sugar and enables food and drink companies to provide many popular low-calorie and sugar-reduced products. Sales of products sweetened with aspartame have grown steadily since the ingredient was introduced in 1983.


By providing an excellent sweet taste without calories, products with aspartame help millions of people to maintain a healthy body weight.
