These sweeteners 950 and 951 are now used in the new Coca Cola Zero Sugar beverage.
The marketing decision of giving consumers ” A Great Taste” without the sugar input. There has been a lot of anti around sugar lately and the bottlers of Coca Cola have been under the spot light in NZ for the amount of Sugar in Coca Cola.
951 Aspartame is not new and is used world wide in approx 5000 to 6000 products. It is also used in Diet Coke. Generally used in products that are sugar free. There is a lot of negative press re this 951 eg literature that I have, published 2002, says that 951 accounts for over 75% of adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA ( US Food and Drug Administration )
In addition this literature lists under Potential Health Effects : Cancer, asthma, MS like symptons, headache, hyperactivity, fatigue,anxiety, dizziness, migraine, memory loss, depression, insomnia, irritability, impotence, epilepsy, blindness,diabetes, neuralgia, seizures,plus many others.
950 Acesulphame Potassium Acesulphame K is also used as an artificial sweetener, doesn’t seem to have as much negative press as Aspartame but Potential Heath Effects advise: May increase levels of cholestrol in blood, caused cancer and tumours in animals.
There are at least 4 US Court Cases lodged in 2004 fighting against Aspartame.
Search Google for Aspartame – there is no shortage of adverse publicity.
So the above is given as information,
but my Question is: does anyone have knowledge of what countries have banned the use of 951 Aspartame.
I understand that some countries have and I would like to get this information.
Thanks, Ian Cambourne
