They are replacing the refine sugar; sweeteners are now omnipresent in our diet. They are considered good for your health because of their caloric benefits. But at what price?

sweetenerScientific studies on these artificial sweeteners are very rare and/or controversial…


What is a sweetener?

Gradually sweeteners have replaced sugar until it becomes present in all our food, from yogurt 0%, diet drinks, to chewing gum.

These natural or artificial products are therefore used alternative to white table sugar we know.


Are they dangerous for your health?

Widely acclaimed in recent years for their sweetness and low calories, sweeteners may actually be a factor of obesity and diabetes.

A study by Israeli scientists, published in the journal Nature, drives the development of glucose intolerance through a change in the intestinal flora. (experiment performed on laboratory mouse that ingested three different sweeteners aspartames, sucralose and saccharin).

This increasing rate of glucose could cause long-term effects of obesity and diabetes.


However scientists declare that the results of this study should be renewed to a human scale to know the precise impact of artificial sweeteners on human being.
