WEBSITES ON ASPARTAME
Much is said on Aspartame. Scientific verdict cannot be based on few anecdotal reports and what you read in chain e-mails. Below is the list of websites that are the strongest opponents of aspartame. However, look what science has to say about all artificial sweeteners at the most authoritative level:
If you are in doubt, donít use it and if you still need to use a sweetener, you may want to try Splenda which doesnít have the methanol connection
Danisco offers other alternative sweeteners too
Also think about whether there is anything wrong about sugar itself when used in moderation!
Even better, consider Fructose, the fruit sugar, with less glycemic index than regular sugar (sucrose). See Frusiana website

Chain e-mails do not establish facts. Only the scientific process does
Aspartame e-mails are not the only ones making rounds around the world

And, please do not ever circulate e-mails that tells you to do so. Use your own judgment.
