Top Ten Worst Sources Of Aspartame!

If you are drinking diet sodas, sugar free gum, than chances are you are consuming Aspartame. Aspartame is a synthetic chemical combination which is comprised of approximately 50% phenylalanine, 40% aspartic acid, and 10% methanol.

These sweeteners contain Aspartame: NutraSweet, Equal, Sweet One and Spoonful. Aspartame is found in thousands of foods, drinks, candy, drinking powders, cereals, cooking sauces and in almost every chewing gum out there (even those that are ALREADY sweetened with SUGAR! – WHY?????).

Alternative sweeteners I use to sweeten my favorite foods.

Two natural sugar-free alternative sweeteners are Xylitol, and Brazilian Stevia Leaf (Not Truvia). From my personal experience, and from reading of various studies out there, Stevia and Xylitol are not linked to harmful side effects like headaches, dizziness, fatigue, neurological damage, and the 87 other related symptoms that Aspartame is reported to be linked to. To be safe, I simply avoid all “diet foods” laced with Aspartame, and ALL other synthetic man made chemicals and sweeteners. I also moderate my sugar intake, and make lots of my own treats (and baking) with Stevia as a sweetener.

It starts with one step at a time, and believe me I know, because I once was addicted to all sugar-free products that were out there, but I stopped and now I feel better than ever.

    My mind is blown! I gave up totally on sugar several months ago, and don’t miss it at all! So I’m not drawn to aspartame-laced soft drinks, etc. But I do chew gum. Ugh! Thank you for you research. And for sharing it on NOBH!
