I live in NM so it might be difficult to find these other diet sodas. And unless they’re labeled as “caffeine-free,” the caffeine in these sodas can be a problem for children, pregnant women, and people sensitive to caffeine. People get sick from that crap and they should hold pepsi responsible for side effects due to their change Reply. FDA refused to pass it being used a a sweetener for over 40 years. This is why California recently required foods containing caramel color to be labeled as potential cancer-causing agents. It was my go to soft drink as I am allergic to aspartame. It was the only pop I could buy from a vending machine or convenience store.
Aspartame, one of the most common artificial sweeteners found in diet drinks, has been accused of a long list of side effects. Headaches, abdominal pain, fatigue and change in heart rate are some of the reactions associated with consuming aspartame. There are some diet drinks that contain alternative sweeteners, so you can still enjoy a low or calorie free soda if you’re trying to avoid aspartame. Diet Rite is made with a blend of sucralose brand name Splenda and Acesulfame potassium. It was the first manufacturer to produce soda drinks without aspartame or saccharin. Diet Rite soda is also made without sodium, which is important to people watching their sodium intake. Zevia is a diet soda that uses Stevia as a sweetener rather than aspartame. Stevia is derived from an herb grown in South America and Central America.
I am really disappointed, angry, and feeling it is a violation of some laws that Pepsi put aspartame back in products without telling anyone. It tasted super sweet. Today’s Top Stories. Shame on the Pepsi company!! I hope this helps some of you in trying to find it out there.
