According to the MNT for Diabetes Type 2 guidelines; the artificial sweeteners are safe to be consumed within the acceptable daily intake levels among the Type 2 Diabetes adult. According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for sweetener aspartame is 50mg/kg body weight/day; sucralose is 5mg/kg body weight/day; stevia is 4mg/kg body weight/day.
When compared to a traditional sugar, artificial are significant advantages to consider because of the caloric profile. Replacing sugar with an artificial sweetener is only one step toward better health and wellness, as diet and exercise are often needed as well. Artificial sweeteners are generally considered safe but should be avoided by people with phenylketonuria or those allergic to sulfonamides.
Artificial sweeteners can help with weight management but they aren't a magic bullet and should be used only in moderation. Keep in mind that processed foods, which often contain sugar substitutes, generally don't offer the same health benefits as wholefoods, such as fruits and vegetables.
