Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but can somebody tell me whether Neotame is bad for you and source the clame to something reasonable?
The internet appears to be full of a massive circlejerk anti-neotame bandwagon quoting the same nonsensical article the science of which can be debunked with basic high school chemistry, but I dont want to trust this fucker without proof just because people warring against it are wrong.
A heat resistant version of aspartame.
In theory, because it cant be metabolised by humans due to not disolving in temperatures slightly above room temperature, it simply passes through your body and doesnt do anything bad to you.
But an angry army of americans is concerned because it s made of ingredients that are highly reactive, which of course they are, otherwise they wouldnt react and make the thing in the first place.
Somebody needs to tell these people that soap contains sodium hydroxide. They will go nuts and never shower again.
Wiki: "Neotame is an artificial sweetener made by NutraSweet that is between 7,000 and 13,000 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar). It is moderately heat-stable, extremely potent, rapidly metabolized, completely eliminated, and does not appear to accumulate in the body."
OP, the FDA and equivalent regulatory bodies in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, as well as consumer group CSPI, reviewed all available evidence and approved it as safe for human consumption. That doesn't mean they're right, and many people are sure that approved consumption levels kill people, but any opinions you're going to get from /ck/ or from conspiracy websites are going to be less informed than the opinions you get from those organizations, so why bother asking here?
I was probably wrong to post this here.
Trying my luck in science. But nevertheless, if anybody here happens to know anything, I d appreciate it.
I am literally addicted to a local produced lemonade that contains the stuff. I have drunk literally thousands of liters and I want to know...
