  • Intervention
    Do intakes of non-nutritive sweeteners (saccharin, aspartame, acesulfame-K, sucralose, neotame) and the foods and beverages to which they are added, assist consumers in meeting recommended dietary goals?
    • Conclusion

      A limited number of studies indicate that non-nutritive sweeteners may assist children, adolescents, and adults in meeting recommended dietary goals. One article suggests that among pre-schoolers, consuming a sweet beverage including that sweetened with non-nutritive sweeteners, before a meal may decrease the intake of less-preferred foods at the next meal.
