What is Aspartame?
Aspartame is the coupling of two naturally occurring amino acids, L-Phenylalanine and L-Aspartic Acid under a strictly controlled process. Natural sources of L-Phenylalanine include milk, eggs, chicken, liver, beef, spinach and leafy greens. L-Aspartic Acid can be found naturally in oat flakes, asparagus, sprouting seeds and sugarcane. As you ingest Aspartame, your body recognizes these two amino acids and they are metabolized and excreted in the same manner as if they were provided by the natural food sources.
Aspartame has been used as a high intensity sweetener in the food industry for over 35 years. It can be found in thousands of food products worldwide. It is the most studied and tested high intensity sweetener on the market today.
