So, what is aszpartám?

Aszpartám, also known as aspartame, is a low-calorie artificial sweetener used in a wide range of food and beverage products as a sugar substitute. It is composed of two amino acids, phenylalanine and aspartic acid, and is 200 times sweeter than regular sugar. Aszpartám is often preferred by individuals looking to limit their sugar intake or manage diabetes, as it has virtually no impact on blood sugar levels. Despite being approved by regulatory agencies worldwide, there has been some controversy surrounding its safety, particularly in high doses. Nevertheless, aszpartám remains a popular choice for those seeking a sweet taste without the calories.
