Aspartame has been a sweetener in many low-calorie, sugar-free foods and beverages since the 1980’s. Because aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar, less can be used to give the same level of sweetness. Thus, the use of aspartame lowers the calories in foods or beverages.

Currently, millions of people around the world enjoy low-calorie, good tasting foods and beverages because of aspartame. It is a good fit for many product categories, including diet beverages, powdered beverages, chewing gum and candies, frozen desserts, yogurt, tabletop sweeteners and some pharmaceuticals such as vitamins and sugar-free cough drops.
