I'll Have Another Chemical Cola, Please!

By Dr. Janet Starr Hull, PhD., CN

Soft drink industry experts predict the blending of artificial sweeteners for sugar replacement will be designed as the "foods of tomorrow." They project manufacturers will continue to blend the various chemical sweeteners available (such as aspartame and sucralose) until they find the perfect mix for taste and shelf life. Just think: one day we may not be able to tell what's real and what's not unless we read the label with our chemistry books in hand.

Remember, for the past fifty years we"ve been told margarine is good for us? Now we are horrified to learn its trans-fatty acids damage our arteries. Now, the brave nutritionists, researchers and doctors who knew this from the beginning are hoarse from warning consumers all these years. Well, here we go again! Soft drinks and colas are merely a case of "mix n match chemistry now a days. In essence, you are drinking a chemical cola!

In the past, we basically had two choices of alternative sweeteners: saccharin or aspartame. Today, with the ever-growing number of chemical sweeteners being formulated to satisfy our unquenchable taste buds, the possibilities of new chemical sweeteners is almost endless - but what will these "test tube wonders do once they enter our bodies? Heed the warnings"

A partial list of the chemicals used in modern-day sweeteners includes: sucralose, aspartame, acesulfame-K, sorbitol, xylitol, high fructose corn syrup, and even cyclamates (a blast from the past: yes, cyclamates may come back. Cyclamates are still used in Canada and Europe and a petition for their return to the US has been filed with the FDA.).

The two newest and most influential low-cal sweeteners are sucralose and acesulfame K. Interestingly, they originally gained popularity touting their superiority to aspartame's toxic chemicals, and now are quietly blended with it.

So bottom's up. I'll have another chemical cola, please!
