Hello dear readers. What a relief it is, when so many things that are happening around us clamor for our attention, that we can sometimes return to pleasant and diverting discussions of some of the more important things in life. A chief example for today being the ingredient lists for two beverages that I discussed the other day in this blog article, namely Diet Mountain Dew and Mountain Dew Zero Sugar. One commenter said this. Read the rest of the label on both beverages — what is the artificial sweetener in Diet Mountain Dew and what else is in the Mountain Dew Zero Sugar? Those are the agents that affect the taste. In my own life the area where I run into this most often is the Diet Mountain Dew that comes from a soda fountain on the one hand, or the Diet Mountain Dew that comes from a bottle on the other hand. The thing is that the bottled Diet Mountain Dew uses aspartame as one of three sweeteners. But aspartame does not have a very long shelf life.
Metrics details. Non-nutritive sweeteners NNS, especially in form of diet soda, have been linked to metabolic derangements e. We aimed to test acute metabolic effects of NNS in isolation water or seltzer and in diet sodas. Measures included GLP-1, GIP, glucose, insulin, C-peptide, glucose absorption, gastric emptying, and subjective hunger and satiety ratings. Insulin concentrations were nominally higher following all NNS conditions without altering glycemia. Sucralose alone at any concentration did not affect metabolic outcomes. Whether the trends toward higher insulin concentrations after NNS are of clinical importance remains to be determined. Our findings emphasize the need to test metabolic effects of NNS after chronic consumption. The data for this manuscript were gathered from clinical trial NCT Several large epidemiologic studies have suggested adverse metabolic effects resulting from non-nutritive sweeteners NNS consumption, surprisingly similar to sugar intake. These include weight gain [ 1 ], central adiposity [ 2 ], metabolic syndrome [ 3 ], and cardiovascular disease [ 4 ].

But it still contains acesulfame potassium ace-K, which is poorly tested, although two studies suggest it may pose a cancer risk, as well as sucralose Splenda, which the CSPI is now approaching with caution since the authors of a forthcoming study link it to leukemia. Genetic and environmental determinants of bitter perception and sweet preferences. But if you have a rare hereditary disorder known as phenylketonuria PKU, you need to limit your intake of phenylalanine, found in aspartame. Several large epidemiologic studies have suggested adverse metabolic effects resulting from non-nutritive sweeteners NNS consumption, surprisingly similar to sugar intake. MW conducted laboratory assays and reviewed the manuscript. In other words, it’s a nutritional zero. Hello dear readers. Diet sodas also harm the immune system because their acidity causes havoc with our gut bacteria.
