Aspartame - proven and calorie-free
Supplier of Aspartame (E 951)
Aspartame is a widely used artificial sweetener that is used as a sugar substitute in a variety of food and beverage products. It is known for its intense sweetness, which exceeds that of sugar or sucrose by about 200 times. In addition, unlike sugar, it is gentle on the teeth. Aspartame is often found in diet drinks, low-calorie products and other foods where a reduction in sugar content is desired.
Aspertame (E 951) is used in the processing industry as a sweetener and sugar substitute for confectionery, foods, drinks and medicines, such as
- Chewing gum, confectionery, desserts
- Sweetener tablets
- Spread, marmalade, jam
- Canned food (fruit, vegetables, fish, seafood & molluscs)
- Dairy products
- Delicatessen salads
- Mustard, sauces.
Aspartame (E 951) is calorie-free, has a sugar-like flavour and can be used on its own or in combination with other sweeteners. It has no effect on insulin or blood sugar levels and is therefore ideal for diabetics and for weight control. However, it should be noted that aspartame is not resistant to heat. This means that the sugar substitute is not suitable for cooking or baking.
Although aspartame is generally recognised as safe, people who suffer from the rare genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU) should completely avoid consuming the sweetener. PKU patients cannot metabolise phenylalanine properly, which can lead to health problems.
