Sweet Things That Bring Joy to My Life
Diet Coke is a favorite for its unique taste and just the right amount of sweetness which is only possible because of aspartame. Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar so only a very small amount is used to give Diet Coke the great taste you love. Aspartame is enjoyed by millions in low-calorie products, like yogurt, chewing gum and soft drinks. In fact, it has been extensively tested for safety by the World Health Organization, US Food and Drug Administration and the European Food Safety Agency. While the safety and benefits of ingredients like aspartame are supported by more than 200 studies spanning 40 years, The Coca-Cola Company understands that people may still have questions. They are making it a priority to address these questions and provide information and education to reinforce aspartame is an ingredient people can feel good about.
