In most of your favorite foods, you may be disguised by a new name of Aspartame and that is AminoSweet. This is the totally new name of Aspartame and most of the people aren’t aware of that name. They have been using the old name but they must have a look at the newer version of Aspartame.
As far as the history of Aspartame is concerned, it is studied by the researchers that once James Schlatter, a chemist was conducting an experiment and he accidently found Aspartame. In that experiment, Aspartame was created and discovered by the chemist. When an analysis was done on the Aspartame it was seen that it can be used as an Anti-ulcer drug. Thus, this drug became famous and was sold at certain prices.
James Schlatter also conducted another experiment on the Aspartame. He when mixed Aspartic Acid with Phenylalanine, he discovered that these two amino acids react to form another compound that is sweet in taste. It was that time when the companies start to change the FDA approval application of Aspartame from the drug and started using it as the food additive and Voila.
In 1973, the Health Freedom Alliance notes G.D Searle and the Company gave its first presentation by presenting its first petition to the FDA. They fought for many years to achieve the approval of FDA and they even submitted the FDA their deceptive and inadequate studies to get their approval.
The company was finally succeeded to convince the FDA to get its approval regarding the Aspartame to be used commercially in few products of 1974, despite the various objections. Though the company got the approval to make Aspartame a commercial product but this approval ignited a blaze of controversies.
The approval from the FDA was gained in 1981 as the artificial sweetener aspartame, and it was for good reason, perhaps the most hotly contested FDA approval in the history. The people’s health has been destroyed by the toxic additive silently ever since its approval.
The Aspartame and AminoSweet are actually exactly the same. The name was changed to trick the public as said by some of the health advocates. There are three separate chemicals in the Aspartame and that are Phenylalanine, Aspartic acid and methanol. The advocate and the author of Prescription for the Nutritional Healing, Phyllis Balch categorized the Aspartame as the “Chemical Poison”
As reported to the FDA, Aspartame accounts for the 75% of the adverse reactions to the food additives. Aspartame is linked with the following symptoms and diseases, aside from tumors and cancers by the top researchers.
- Memory Loss
- Vision Loss
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Chronic Fatigue
Changing the name of Aspartame that is memorable and appealing may be problematic for some people. Such as the Ajinomoto’s own word, some of the people will hoodwink it and some will reject it as this is just nothing more than a clever market tactic that is done for a desperate attempt in order to preserve the multi-billion dollar cash cows of the company. You should not be deceived by this but take this in a positive way. Try to focus on the positive aspects and the positive benefits that the AminoSweet has been providing you. You will be surely able to enjoy the amazing and effective results of the Aspartame as far as you start focusing on the positive use of the Aspartame.
