One selected question and answer:

1. How safe are the artificial sweeteners now available in the market?


Jothydev: I will better quote from the new edition of Davidson: Artificial sweeteners are safe and widely used all over the world. They are low in calories and free of adverse effects. Sugar free drinks with these sweeteners are also safe. Some examples are Saccharin, Aspartame (Equal, Nutrasweet), Sucralose(Splenda), neotame and acesulphame K.
