Health Canada acknowledges the safety of aspartame
Canada's Food Directorate, Health Canada, has recently posted on its website
details of the process to which aspartame was subjected before being approved as
a food ingredient. Health Canada conducted an extensive review of the scientific
research and examined the results of clinical studies. The Directorate stated
that "there is no evidence to suggest that the consumption of foods containing
this sweetener, according to the provisions of the Food and Drug Regulations and
as part of a well-balanced diet, would pose a health hazard to consumers."
