A List of Foods Containing Aspartame

Health concerns raised about the safety of aspartame, including increased cancer risk, have not been validated through research. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Cancer Society acknowledge that aspartame is safe for general use within a recommended intake. The FDA sets an Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for aspartame at 50 milligrams per kilogram, equivalent to 21 aspartame sweetened beverages for a 165 pound person.

Aspartame is safe for use by nearly all healthy individuals, including those with diabetes. The one exception is people who have phenylketonuria (PKU). People with PKU are unable to metabolize phenylalanine, a component of aspartame. A warning statement on all products containing aspartame advises against consuming it, if you have PKU.

Some not so obvious foods and products contain aspartame. For example, condiments that typically contain sugar, such as ketchup, dressings, sauces and marinades, may use aspartame in their light or reduced calorie versions. Aspartame can also be in some prescription and over the counter medications. The FDA requires that these medications include a statement that they contain phenylalanine.

Food products are constantly changing, and new products are on the grocery shelves every day. The surest way to assess any food or medication is to check the ingredients listing for aspartame.
