Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to Aspartame hydrochloride (CAS RN 5910- 52-1). Aspartame is a low-calorie, artificial sweetener agent derived from L-aspartic acid and methyl-L phenylalaninate. It is approximately 200 times sweeter than sucrose and has been used as a diet supplement and sugar substitute for many years as, like other sweeteners, it contributes to only a few calories when added to foods. According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA), high-intense sweeteners such as aspartame are widely used in food and beverages marketed as “sugarfree” or “diet,” including baked goods, soft drinks, powdered drink mixes, candy, puddings, canned food, jams and jellies, dairy products, and many others. Despite being low-calorie, aspartame is classified as a nutritive sweetener by the FDA, as it adds caloric value to the foods that contain it. It has more than 2% of the calories in an equivalent amount of sugar, as opposed to non-nutritive sweeteners that contain less than 2%. In fact, aspartame is the only approved nutritive high-intensity sweetener. Aspartame is also contained in many pharmaceutical products.
