Response to World Health Organization Reviews of Aspartame

In response to two World Health Organization (WHO) evaluations of aspartame, Apura Ingredients, Inc. agrees with the position of the International Sweeteners Association (ISA) and Calorie Control Council (CCC) that highlights the safety of the low- and no-calorie sweetener aspartame.

Time and time again, the safety of aspartame has been confirmed by global food safety and regulatory bodies, including the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Aspartame has undergone one of the most extensive and thorough testing programs conducted on any food additive in history, resulting in consensus on its safety throughout the global scientific and regulatory community.
