What type of sweetener is in diet coke

Jams and jellies Dairy products Artificial sweeteners are popular for home use also. Some can be utilized in baking or cooking even. Certain recipes might need modification because unlike sugar, artificial sweeteners provide no volume or bulk. Check the labels on artificial sweeteners for appropriate home use. Some artificial sweeteners may leave an aftertaste. A different artificial sweetener or a mixture could be more appealing.

Possible health advantages of artificial sweeteners Artificial sweeteners don’t contribute to tooth decay and cavities. Artificial sweeteners may also help with: Weight control. Artificial sweeteners have no calories virtually. In contrast, a teaspoon of sugar has about 16 calories – so a can of sweetened cola with 10 teaspoons of added sugar has about calories. If you’re trying to lose weight or prevent weight gain, products sweetened with artificial sweeteners may be an attractive option, although their effectiveness for long-term weight loss isn’t clear.

Artificial sweeteners aren’t carbohydrates. So unlike sugar, artificial sweeteners generally don’t raise blood sugar levels. Ask your doctor or dietitian before using any sugar substitutes if you have diabetes. Possible health concerns with artificial sweeteners Artificial sweeteners have been scrutinized intensely for decades. Critics of artificial sweeteners say that a variety is caused by them of health problems, including cancer.

That’s largely due to studies dating to the s that linked the artificial sweetener saccharin to bladder cancer in laboratory rats. Because of those scholarly studies, saccharin once carried a label warning that it could be hazardous to your health.

But based on the National Cancer Institute and other health agencies, there’s no sound scientific evidence that any of the artificial sweeteners approved for use in the United States cause cancer or other serious health problems. Numerous studies confirm that artificial sweeteners are safe in limited quantities generally, for pregnant women even.

As a total result, the warning label for saccharin was dropped. They must be approved and reviewed by the FDA before being made available for sale. Substances receive this designation if they meet either of these criteria: Qualified professionals deem the substance safe for its intended use on the basis of scientific data.

Stevia preparations are an example of this kind of GRAS designation. The substances have such a lengthy history of common use in food that they’re considered generally safe. ADI is the maximum amount considered safe to consume every day over the course of a lifetime. ADIs are set at very conservative levels.

Novel sweeteners Novel sweeteners are hard to fit into a particular category due to what they’re made from and how they’re made. Stevia is an example. The FDA has approved highly refined stevia preparations as novel sweeteners but hasn’t approved whole-leaf stevia or crude stevia extracts for this use. Tagatose is also considered a novel sweetener due to its chemical structure.

Tagatose is a low-carbohydrate sweetener similar to fructose that occurs naturally but is produced from the lactose in dairy products. Sugar alcohols Sugar alcohols polyols are carbohydrates that occur naturally in certain fruits and vegetables – although they may also be manufactured.

Despite their name, sugar alcohols aren’t alcoholic because they don’t contain ethanol, which is found in alcoholic beverages. Sugar alcohols aren’t considered extreme sweeteners because they aren’t sweeter than sugar. In fact, some are less sweet than sugar.

As with artificial sweeteners, the FDA regulates the use of sugar alcohols. Sugar alcohols contain calories. But they’re lower in calories than sugar, making them an attractive alternative. Uses for sugar alcohols Sugar alcohols generally aren’t used when you prepare food at home. But they’re in many processed foods and other products, including chocolate, chewing toothpaste and gum. Sugar alcohols add sweetness, texture and bulk to food, as well as helping food to stay moist. Sugar alcohols are combined with artificial sweeteners to enhance sweetness often.

Food labels may use the general term “sugar alcohol” or list the specific name, such as sorbitol. Possible health advantages of sugar alcohols Like artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols don’t contribute to tooth decay and cavities, and may also help with: Weight control. Sugar alcohols contribute calories to your diet – but fewer calories than regular sugar. Sugar alcohols might help weight-control efforts. Unlike artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols are carbohydrates and can raise blood sugar levels.

But your body doesn’t completely absorb sugar alcohols, so their effect on blood sugar is smaller than that of other sugars. Talk to your dietitian or doctor for guidance because sugar alcohols vary in their effects on blood sugar.

Possible health concerns with sugar alcohols When eaten in large amounts, sugar alcohols can have a laxative effect, leading to bloating, intestinal diarrhea and gas. Product labels might carry a warning about this potential laxative effect. Natural sweeteners Natural sweeteners are sugar substitutes that are often promoted as healthier options than sugar or other sugar substitutes.

But even these “natural sweeteners” often undergo processing and refining. Natural sweeteners that the FDA recognizes as generally safe include: Fruit juices and nectars.

  1. duset? its dukattey!

  2. These fat fucks have fatty liver. Why satisfy your sweet addiction instead of cure it like cole Robinson the snake diet wizard. Hahah. Doesnt Splenda have an insulin response. Better than aspartame. Why use chemicals to fuck up the taste buds. My grandpa used Splenda but still had diabetes. Look at Dr. Jason fung endocrinologist books diabetes code and obesity code or YouTube videos and the fung the diabetes big lies. Type 2 diabetes is the easiest think to cure like all the time.

  3. The best person you can rely on if you want to build a career in bodybuilding.

  4. Plus if sweetners would be toxic,toxins are stored in fatcells so if sweetners help you to lose fat and keep you lean, you Will have less space for toxins to be stored😁

    1. Only fat soluble chemicals will be stored in fat cells.

  5. lol… im tired of defending sweeteners to sugar addicts. lol

    1. @Regular Old Plumbus i like what you are doing looks like your using moderation that works to.

    2. BOOM BOOM 10g processed sugars so id have a candy bar or some soda once in a while per week, i eat fruits and veggies tho, and they taste sweet enough me tbh to not have to eat like the doctor, i actually like the taste of raw greens they taste sweet.

    3. BOOM BOOMi probably eat only 10 grams a day thats less than a spoon so id take eating less but tasting better

  6. No shit. We have a liver to filter out poison chemicals. I dont think you can be trusted. And you just want to sell people sarms. What is your source. You say sarms are better than steroids and some people say sarms like supplements. I think need trainined and hard work is the real secret. Magic sarms. Guess the only way to try. Never know what get unless make your own laboratory.

  7. Ok soyboy. Saying sun is bad is like saying bacteria and water is bad. Bacteria is really important for hormones and brain functions and enzyme processes. Without it your memory would be much worse and not healthy. Life is bacteria. They are small but you have 10 times. More bacteria than cells. You are made of bacteria and life started from bacteria and your mitochondria cells evolved from bacteria. I had many experience with soy. A lot of your content is good. But what are you talking about. You went to school long ago. And think you need to go to dentist every 6 months. And let the dentist drill a normal good tooth. If you have any filling in mouth either not healthy and got poisoned or got scammed. I bet you still belive hiv virus cause aids religion too, right. Every scientist in every country has known about this scam for 20 years already. Get most vitamin D from uvb rays from sun between 9-3p.m. Uva rays age the skin and make old and damaged wrinkled and damage colegen. From skin and 90% absorbed from pupils if African, cannot absorb through skin. depending on season and part of the world. In tropical climates there is no such thing as the seasonal flu. No one vomits every year. Since in Asia I never vomit and dont know anyone that ever has. And I asked everyone. Thousands of people never heard of this. I had it every winter during school. They call the flu a runny nose and headache or fever. Never stomach flu in bed cannot move for days and feel like dead and vomit. Only happens in the winter northern climate where no uvb rays penetrating. It is about dosages. Sunglasses cause cancer. All the uv rays needed from sun. Just like at night need complete darkness for melatonin production. science at university Berkeley over 30 years with hundreds of thousands of people showed 95 percent less cancer in people that go in the sun 20 minutes a day vs people never in the sun. Cholesterol scam also. Cholesterol is good. It is ldl oxidized cholesterol and trans fat and vegetable oil and fried and processed foods. You probably scared of virus and think need vaccines and vaccines saved the world and help weak people. Antibiotics do more harm than good. But at least antibiotics have some Benefits. But broad spectrum antibiotics are crap. While raw honey is used to treat antibiotic resistant staff infections in major u.k. Hospital. Think why not just use natures antibiotics since it is safer and more effective.
    Scared of the sun. Even Baby Sunblock cause cancer and has Xenoestrogen oxybenzone which 10percent is absorbed into the blood. Just like androgen or testosterone creams. Giving baby dosages of estrogen mimicking chemicals. Benzophenone (BP)Oxybenzone.
    Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA)
    Octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC)
    4-Methylbenzylidene camphor (4-MBC)

    1. Greg Doucette This whole comment is full of video ideas 💡 greg take advantage

    2. Sean Combs thats alot for most people to read. I can say I did read it and I am still convinced that people often get skin cancer from the sun. You touched on cholesterol and yes its not a big deal to eat foods high in cholesterol. Id be more worried if someone ate alot of sugar and saturated and trans fats.

  8. *not true……diet soda can cause type 2 diabetes, gut problems, and it gives you anxiety, irratibility, nervousnuss, worry, and your brain feels like its in a blender being destroyed, you have mood swings, and when you try to quit because your sick all the time you have withdrawl for months*

    1. Elephant In The Room Stop being an idiot, have you ever even experinced those negatives yourself?

    2. What are you talking about? Have you ever used an artificial sweetener? Non of those side effects happen. And as to the diabetes and gut problems youre probably taking about the studies that showed correlation between taking artificial sweeteners and diabetes and gut problems. But correlation does not mean causation, if you take into account the fact that more obese people use artificial sweeteners than non obese people and that obese people also have these problems (even if they dont use artificial sweeteners) you see there is no correlation.

    3. wow, are those the things diet soda does to you??
      PUSSY! shut up, you lie too much. or your just a pussy.

  9. Can you please make a video discussing when teenagers should diet? I’ve been told that I have stunted my growth by dieting as a teen. What’s your take on this?

    1. DanielP the reason I wrote this is because I was eating ver low calories to maintain a body weight below 106lbs for 6 months. But yes I do agree that your “diet” should be a life style apposed to a temporary fix

    2. Landon Hicks Training teenagers shouldn’t diet, nobody should. Always eat clean and keep the “diet” that way. If you won’t follow those rules and wanna get fat sometimes and then ripped again, sure diet, and then you do exactly like a grown up would. You won’t stun your growth that’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. You just lose fat because you eat less, nothing else

    3. Im 17 years old and ive been dieting for about a year and Ive gotten an inch taller since Ive started. Im sure it comes to genetics.

  10. Haahhah…Another good video! Good info again.👍People needto see this.

  11. Cancer feeds off sugar!! Too much is no good. This has been proven!!

  12. the sun has not ever given anyone cancer. KNOW YOUR FACTSand sugar used correctly is an amazing bodybuilding tool

    1. Tell that to all the people that have developed melanoma from exposure to UV radiation FROM THE SUN. Too much exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer and that’s just a fact

  13. I agree with you on a lot of things but aspartame being okay for anyone is a crock of s***if you look at the daily recommendations youre not recommended more than one serving her day of artificial sweetener aspartame or acesulfame, one serving per day for instance I stick of sugar free gum. There have been multiple studies done not only does it dehydrate the brain but it depletes the body of lithium vitamin D and a ton of other vitamins and minerals let the body needs. Sucralose may not be as bad but look at the process that Sugar goes through bebecom sucralose. The mess is straight-up poison. Take some sugar and mix it up with water you go outside in the summer and put some down and watch the ants come straight to it but makes up some aspartame with water put it out and ants will do everything in the world to stay away from it I guess answer smarter than us though. Its just like butter versus margarine or any of that other fake whipped spread. If you put butter out ants well come to it like crazy but they will go around the fake butter. Big Pharma like fake butter and fake sweetener though because theyve been love everyone to consume it and get sick and have to go to the doctor to get meds to stay alive a little longer.

  14. do cutting artificial sweetners help your come in more conditioned for a contest ?

    1. lader baxter I consume them throughout prep with no issues. Onky the day before and show day so I even change anything.

  15. Tilapia is debatable the most poisonous toxic food in the world. Do your research bro about how they make tilapia where it comes from.

    1. actually tilapia is not a fish species, there is no tilapia fish. it covers multiple species of whitefish usually farm raised so to me, not preferable

  16. Love your videos I seriously think I have seen them all! Your amazing!

    1. @Greg Doucette can you please do a video on how to properly workout what type of stretches to do before and after the gym such at dynamic stretches and such thanks papa bear lmao

  17. Social media experts has screwed so many facts ups. There are few people out there like Greg who know their shit. To many of them havent a clue what theyre talking about. Theyve worried people to the point they cant even think common sense anymore, its sad.

  18. Artificial sweeteners are said to hurt your gut bacteria…

    1. According to other studies, they do.  We pick and choose the study that promotes our cause.  This is the fitness world.

    2. Optimistic Outreach Aspartame and Acesulfame K doesn’t affect the gut microbiome according to studies. However, Sucralose have shown a reduce in some gut bacteria in mice/rats…

  19. I just got into it with a fitness personality over this a day ago sweetners arent going to kill you

    1. @Johny Goodwin Theyre not worth listening to on nutrition advice, though. They obviously have their values out of line if poop is appetizing to them.

    2. @Mean Bean Productions they do and yet they dont touch sweeteners

    3. @Johny Goodwin maybe because they are not after sweet stuff but energy 🙂

    4. @Johny Goodwin flies and insects eat shit. I dont take nutrition advice from bugs.

  20. Stuck In the mud belief maybe and not learning. Study real Dr and honest science. Obviously you have no clue how business or school or science works. And think humans are so smart. Dr. Russell Blaylock or Dr Peter deusburg or Kerry mullis or Lou montagneir Nobel prize winners for discover the HIV virus. Listen to what the gold medalist of science say. Or any scientist about science or read there books or listen to there lectures. Your school just brainwashed you and did not give the ability to think. You dont even know what is in aspartame for example. And most people dont drink that. But I know a judge who talked on cell phones hours a day for years and drink diet coke all the time. Had brain tumor behind ear and died. Lot of science on aspartame. Ya it is 10 percent gasoline. Ya drink little gasoline is not gonna kill you, so. Alcohol might be worse. You just copy what you hear. 50 years ago doctors where recommending camel smoking for health in commercial and now they are recommended DNA chain terminators chemo therapy for some bullshit. Tell me how I am stupid and crazy for not believing how hiv cause aids. They dont even have any real test for hiv anyway. I am just copy all the gold medal scientist that study and discover hiv. Big bullshit scam. You been mind fucked by the world. School just made you stupid. Belive what they told you. And people that told you just repeat like a monkey also

    1. Its not 10% gasoline and your anecdotes are meaningless in the face of empirical data.

    2. Sean Combs You sure did go off track there. Your bringing up aids in a discussion about aspartame. You say I know nothing about business or school. I own my own business and my gf owns her own pet value franchise. Its all business. I also taught school for 12 years and have my masters degree so I have been in schools alot.

  21. 3:40 it also has 4calories per gram but like 200-400 times sweeter so u use 200-400 less, reducing calories…

  22. I usually agree with Greg. And am happy I subscribed to his channel because he gives out very good information. But this time Ill have to disagree. Sucralose contains chlorine the same chlorine you put in your pool. It kills good bacteria in your gut and compromises your immune system. You cant train when youre sick. Dont drink artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup. Not conducive to bodybuilding. Also many studies show that people who drink artificial sweeteners are more obese than people who drink sugar sweetened beverages.

    1. Obese people drink artificial sweeteners cause they think it will help them lose weight while they snack on 4litres of ice cream and McDonalds 7 days a week.

    2. Oh boy, youre going to flip when you find out what that Cl in NaCl Stands for in salt…

    3. If you dont want to use sucralose then you can use aspartame which is simply a combination of 2 amino acid, aspartic acid and phenylalanine. Or of course stevia, which comes from a plant. Theres other options for artificial sweetner.

    4. Dude this is like some conspiracy bs. I’ve consumed artificial sweetener since I was like 12. People in the army tried telling me the same crap. Until there are multiple studies that can back this up I call bs.

  23. Also all natural supplements have been soaked in natural kerosene. Does not mean kerosene is good. Look at ajjonas vonderplantiz says about supplements. This brain damaged autistic person actually went to the manufacturer and found out once he cured his autism brain damage and could talk and think for once. Also antibiotics have been linked to autism. Not just the heavy metals in the vaccines. Because antibiotics kill bacteria and hugh percent of people with autism have over growth of certain bacteria that was caused from broad spectrum antibiotics use that killed good bacteria and allowed this other bacteria to overgrown. So once they give these kids antibiotic to kill this bacteria they improve drastically. Microbiome research is very new this century discovery. Only an idiot would allow someone to inject something into there baby that they dont know what it is in the hopes it will protect them. Or torture and mutilate kid cutting off part of there dick. Proof that humans are not intelligent and cannot think outside of there environment or culture

  24. Since starting the popcorn and diet drinks I’m seeing improvements over the last month. Thanks.

  25. Gregg I like you but you need to do your research from Dr Russel Blaylock who is a Brain Surgeon. Youre WRONG!

    1. The quack behind the MSG scare is still stoking fear for profit …

      He hasnt been a brain surgeon for decades.

    2. Ya a brain surgeon knows more about nutrition then me ok. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  26. The main reason I try not to take artificial sweeteners is because there are studies that say it kills the bacteria in our gut. Those gut bacteria are vital to breaking down our foods and getting the nutrients.

    1. Just use it if you want. One study says this and the other says that, if you feel comfortable putting it in your body then 9 times out of 10 your going to be fine.

    2. No its bullshit, i saw an other study and its say is not proven that it does that.

  27. When was there a huge rise in IBD over there in Canada. Does it coincide with Sucralose

  28. Great video Greg! I’m glad you shed light on this. Couldn’t agree with you more!

  29. Trust is for dumb fools. That is what I am and what the world is made up of.

  30. Thanks for the video, now I can be less of an asshole when I go out because Im avoiding everything! Greg, on another note if you see this, how important is cardio to losing body fat and how often should one do cardio on top of weight training?

  31. Hey Greg, I would like know how do I improve vascularity on my forearm. I am assuming that consuming decent amount of sodium will not do anything negative and when the temperature outside is very cold, it is hard to see veins.

    1. Derby Harrington first thing u have to do is have very low bodyfat levels. Leaner u are the more veins u will see. Then yes, increased temperatures will show ur veins more. Having a pump will help so like using ur arms. You could tie a rope around your upper arm. Eating carbs salt and fluids would also help. Its not something id concern myself with but does not mean others will not have this as a goal.

    1. Tomer Wolberg He’s literally a moron whose profile pic is him posing on the beach with his towel covering his stomach because he doesn’t have abs.

    2. @SUGAR LIFE then please teach me. How does eating sugar good for you?

    3. @SUGAR LIFE its not incredible for you and your metabolism. It doesnt cause cancer but it also isnt good for you, its just empty calories. It has no nutritional value (no micro-nutrients), its just calories and its not satiating so if you try to lose weight eating plain sugar is just dumb. It also has nothing to do with your metabolism unless youre talking about the thermic affect of food which in that case its realy negligible compare to the calories it brings. Your total calorie balance does have a lot to do with your metabolism so technically if youre using the sugar to eat more calories than you burn than it will boost your metabolism but would also make you fatter (the fastest way to boost your metabolism is becoming fatter and sugar can help you achieve it but it defeats the purpose of having faster metabolism).

    4. High fructose corn syrup is sugar. Its fructose:glucose ratio is just a bit higher than honey.

  32. If Guys cant get ripped with this FREE Quality information they are MORONS!

    1. Jimmy Bagadonuts if you eat more calories than you burn by eating Splenda, yes. If you don’t eat more than you burn, no it wont

  33. My parents are so scared of aspartame and wont buy anything with it. Telling me its gonna cause cancer and its been proven. I wish Greg could come over and just explain it to them.
