Artificial sweeteners have been used for decades as a substitute for sugar in order to reduce calories and cut down on health issues such as tooth decay, obesity, Type II diabetes, and more.
In this guide, the authors give an overview of the most common artificial sweeteners on the market, and what you need to know in order to make the right decisions about food for you and your family in order to stay safe.
Anyone who eats convenience food is exposing themselves to a range of chemicals, from coloring, flavoring and preservatives, to artificial sweeteners. They make food taste delicious, but what happens when your body starts to digest them?
It may not seem as if you are eating too much artificial sweetener in your diet, but they have become such a popular ingredient in many foods that it can be hard to measure how much you and your children are actually consuming.
Artificial sweeteners can be found in everything from cookies, cakes and pies, to sauces and salad dressings. They are present in soda, and some studies have shown that artificial sweeteners can cause weight gain even though people are drinking ‘diet’ products.
If you’re concerned about all the multi-syllable ingredients on the label of your children’s favorite foods, download this guide to learn more about the wide range of artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes available, their benefits, and risks.
