Finding Aspartame in the Sneakiest Places...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I want to share this because I hate aspartame with a passion. Everything about it is wrong. There are some articles that claim that phenylalanine (50% of aspartame's composition) is a hot-bed for cancer growth; that it literally welcomes and fortifies cancer cells.

 

What angered me until I just "wised up" and began avoiding all packaged food was that things that are not labeled "Sugar-Free" also contain phenylalanine. Royal Jello and pudding, for instance: I bought it because it was cheap. What this brand is doing is combining refined sugar with aspartame so it' doesn't have to say "Sugar-Free" - we must read labels carefully. Most mortifying of all is that they are mixing it into children's vitamins in the same way. No "Sugar-Free" on the front label so we don't expect to find that it contains phenylalanine - WHY does it? Can you imagine giving your child a daily dose of phenylalanine?

 

I just share this as a heads-up and a call to read all labels...

Flintstone's vitamins is now sweetened with it.

Tree House ones are done with xylitol instead which is great for your teeth.
