Artificial weetener ‘neotame’ used in cakes, drinks can seriously damage people’s health, a study finds

An artificial sweetener used in cakes, soft drinks and chewing gum can seriously damage people’s health by weakening the gut, a new study published in the medical journal Frontiers in Nutrition has found.

Recent studies have indicated considerable health risks associated with the consumption of artificial sweeteners.

Neotame is a relatively new sweetener in the global market however there is still limited data on the impact of neotame on the intestinal epithelium or the commensal microbiota.

The findings underlined that some of a new generation of sweeteners that give food products a super-sweet taste can have a “toxic effect” on health, the researchers said.
