What is Aspartame?
Aspartame is an artificial sweetener that is 180-200 times sweeter than table sugar (sucrose). It was discovered in 1965 by James M. Schlatter and was approved by the FDA as a food additive in 1983 for use in diet sodas. Now, aspartame is found in a wide variety of low-calorie foods.
Because Aspartame is nearly 200 times sweeter than sugar, very little is needed to sweeten foods. This means less aspartame is consumed, plus aspartame contains only 4 calories per gram.
