ASPARTAME HAS BEEN RENAMED AND IS NOW BEING MARKETED AS A NATURAL SWEETENER
Aspartame has been renamed and is now being marketed as a natural sweetener
Friday, February 12, 2010 by: Ethan Huff, citizen journalist

NaturalNews) In response to growing awareness about the dangers of artificial sweeteners, what does the manufacturer of one of the world's most notable artificial sweeteners do? Why, rename it and begin marketing it as natural, of course. This is precisely the strategy of Ajinomoto, maker of aspartame, which hopes to pull the wool over the eyes of the public with its rebranded version of aspartame, called "AminoSweet".

Over 25 years ago, aspartame was first introduced into the European food supply. Today, it is an everyday component of most diet beverages, sugar-free desserts, and chewing gums in countries worldwide. But the tides have been turning as the general public is waking up to the truth about artificial sweeteners like aspartame and the harm they cause to health. The latest aspartame marketing scheme is a desperate effort to indoctrinate the public into accepting the chemical sweetener as natural and safe, despite evidence to the contrary.

Aspartame was an accidental discovery by James Schlatter, a chemist who had been trying to produce an anti-ulcer pharmaceutical drug for G.D. Searle & Company back in 1965. Upon mixing aspartic acid and phenylalanine, two naturally-occurring amino acids, he discovered that the new compound had a sweet taste. The company merely changed its FDA approval application from drug to food additive and, voila, aspartame was born.

G.D. Searle & Company first patented aspartame in 1970. An internal memo released in the same year urged company executives to work on getting the FDA into the "habit of saying yes" and of encouraging a "subconscious spirit of participation" in getting the chemical approved.

G.D. Searle & Company submitted its first petition to the FDA in 1973 and fought for years to gain FDA approval, submitting its own safety studies that many believed were inadequate and deceptive. Despite numerous objections, including one from its own scientists, the company was able to convince the FDA to approve aspartame for commercial use in a few products in 1974, igniting a blaze of controversy.

In 1976, then FDA Commissioner Alexander Schmidt wrote a letter to Sen. Ted Kennedy expressing concern over the "questionable integrity of the basic safety data submitted for aspartame safety". FDA Chief Counsel Richard Merrill believed that a grand jury should investigate G.D. Searle & Company for lying about the safety of aspartame in its reports and for concealing evidence proving the chemical is unsafe for consumption.

Despite the myriad of evidence gained over the years showing that aspartame is a dangerous toxin, it has remained on the global market with the exception of a few countries that have banned it. In fact, it continued to gain approval for use in new types of food despite evidence showing that it causes neurological brain damage, cancerous tumors, and endocrine disruption, among other things.

The details of aspartame's history are lengthy, but the point remains that the carcinogen was illegitimately approved as a food additive through heavy-handed prodding by a powerful corporation with its own interests in mind. Practically all drugs and food additives are approved by the FDA not because science shows they are safe but because companies essentially lobby the FDA with monetary payoffs and complete the agency's multi-million dollar approval process.

Changing aspartame's name to something that is "appealing and memorable", in Ajinomoto's own words, may hoodwink some but hopefully most will reject this clever marketing tactic as nothing more than a desperate attempt to preserve the company's multi-billion dollar cash cow. Do not be deceived.

Aspertame, uh, I mean Aminosweet is nothing like Aspertame, and is also very safe to invest, I mean, injest. Do not belief the rumors that this product is unsafe. It is very safe. I drink it all the time, and look, I am just fine.

Brands of Stevia are slowly making an impact in the market,
especially now that it can be sold as a sweetener in the US.
They have to do something to save aspartame so they rebrand it.
 Quoting: DrPostman



I honestly believe if society is around in another 20-30 years, it will eventually have to be revealed how bad for people these artifical sweetners were..

kinda like nicotine, or margarine/hydrogenated oil , or fluoride, etc were all once accepted as not dangerous but are all now well known to be dangerous.

Re: ASPARTAME HAS BEEN RENAMED AND IS NOW BEING MARKETED AS A NATURAL SWEETENER
I post the dangers of these poisons every chance I get on every message board I can.

JUST BECAUSE THE FDA SAYS IT IS "NATURAL" DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT IS SAFE.

MSG is implicated in the onset of Autism.
I would think that Aspartame is also.
I wonder how many mothers of these children consumed this stuff before and during pregnancy.

I write letters of complaint to every company that puts MSG by its many aliases into and onto our food supply.

I understand they are required to report all these complaints to the FDA. I was wondering if I should just send a copy of my letters to the FDA.

Nature's place chicken farmers feed their chickens Citric Acid. They have yet to admit that they also Inject them with "Hydrolyzed Protein/MSG) before they are slaughtered.
They all give me a headache.
Likewise Publix Brand "Natural Chicken" does the same.
All of them do.
No additives they say.
Well, I think the injection of this material is an additive.

Like many things in our lives, its a part of programming and habit and those things can be changed with a little willpower.

Our taste buds are highly adaptable and acceptable to new things over a period of time.

For example :

If you are used to drinking sweetened ice tea , take about 8 weeks to slowly reduce the amount of sweetner you add to that ice tea . You may find that you actually enjoy ice tea better without sweetner in it.

I always water down any sweetened drinks like grapejuice or gatorade ,etc.

stevia is a good alternative, but to still expensive IMHO.

yes, you can try and grow the plant and use it, but its not as easy as some claim ecspecially if you try and grow it from seed.

As CEO of the international drug and chemical company Searle Pharmaceuticals,

(marketed as NutraSweet); and when Rumsfeld brokered the deal to sell Searle to
Monsanto, he personally earned an estimated $12 million.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 889368


Aspartame's a neuro-toxin
with a 'poison' potential
to cause eventual
problems 'neurological'
which can be crippling,
if not lethal!

So, if you have the time, go...
check out ties between
Donald Rumsfield, the king
of all things *poison*-ing,
& Searle/Monsanto.

For, in this ever-worsening
food-modifying game,
alas, it would seem
it's not only aspartame
which 'they're' connected to,
but most of the world's lame
GM seed problems are also
related to evil-doers who
'hail' from Monsanto,
considered 'MeanSatano'
by myself... & others, too!


So, if 'good health' is your aim,
Don't Drink the Koolaid !!!

or anything else containing
the 'neurotoxin' Aspartame!



_____ KILL-AID _____

. . . . . . koolaid . . . . .
_ brought to you by _
that 'MeanSatano' guy





Remember, despite what that dummy, Rummy,
or any of the other poisonous 'renamer' rat-finks

would try to con us into 'group-think'...


A *GROSS* poisonous neuro-toxin like Asp-artame

(even renamed & known) by any other name


would smell
... the same ... & still ......... STINK !!!!!!

. . . Just say "NO" . . .

The Ajinomoto company also is the one that originally made and marketed MSG in the far east and here.

In Japan, MSG is called "Ajinomoto", where it's a friendly presence on the kitchen counter

They sure do know how to market their engineered-taste food proteins as fun and friendly products.
