    Ultimate nutrition,optimum nutr. vs. birçok ek besinde suni tadlandırıcı olarak kullanılan acesulfame K hakkında,ultimate nutrition firmasına mesaj attım.Gelen yanıtı aşağıda veriyorum.Yazıyı özetlersek,bu katkı maddesinin FDA tarafından onaylandığı,güvenilir olduğudur.Birçok araştırma sonucu temiz çıkmıştır.


    More than 90 studies have demonstrated the safety of acesulfame K. The U.S.
    Food and Drug Administration permitted the use of acesulfame K after
    evaluating numerous studies and determining it is safe for its intended use.

    The FDA approved acesulfame K for use in liquid non-alcoholic beverages
    (soft drinks) on July 6, 1998. FDA has reaffirmed acesulfame K's safety on
    nine separate occasions by broadening its approval. A general use approval
    was granted by the FDA in December 2003.

    The FDA has set an acceptable daily intake (ADI) for acesulfame K of 15
    milligrams per kilogram of body weight. ADI, expressed in terms of body
    weight, is the amount of a food additive that can be taken daily in the diet
    over a lifetime without risk. FDA's ADI for acesulfame K is equivalent to a
    132-pound person eating 143 pounds of sugar annually (i.e., more than the
    average person consumes of all sugar and corn sweeteners combined).

    The Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), the scientific
    advisory body to the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture
    Organization of the United Nations, reviewed the available research on
    acesulfame K and concluded that it is safe. JECFA has also established an
    ADI of 15 mg/kg of body weight.

    The Scientific Committee for Food of the European Union published a
    comprehensive assessment of sweetening agents in 1985. This committee of
    toxicological experts from the EU member countries accepted acesulfame K for

    use in foods and beverages. Acesulfame K has been used in Europe since 1983
    and in the U.S. since 1988, with no known documented adverse health effects.
    The National Toxicology Program was established in 1978 by the Department of
    Health and Human Services (DHHS). NTP’s mission is to evaluate agents of
    public health concern by developing and applying the tools of modern
    toxicology and molecular biology. The study is “GMM-01 Toxicity Studies Of
    Acesulfame Potassium (CAS NO. 55589-62-3) in FVB/N-TgN(v-Ha-ras)Led (Tg.AC)
    Hemizygous Mice and Carcinogenicity Studies of Acesulfame Potassium in
    B6.129-Trp53tm1Brd (N5) Haploinsufficient Mice (Feed Studies)”. The
    conclusion on page 2 of the abstract states “Under the conditions of this
    9-month feed study, there was no evidence of carcinogenic activity
    acesulfame potassium in male or female p53 haploinsufficient mice exposed to
    0.3%, 1%, or 3%.”

    The International Food Information Council (IFIC) recently published a
    brochure entitled “Everything You Need to Know About…Acesulfame Potassium)”.
    The IFIC’s mission is to communicate science-based information on food
    safety and nutrition to health and nutrition professionals, educators,
    journalists, government officials and others providing information to
    consumers. The IFIC is unique in that the organization does not represent
    any product or company or lobby for legislative or regulatory activities.
    The brochure reiterates the position of the FDA, WHO, and countless other
    scientific communities in-that “Acesulfame Potassium is safe and suitable
    for all segments of the population”.

    Acesulfame Potassium is currently used in more than 4000 products around the
    world. This includes candies, tabletop sweeteners, chewing gums (for
    example Trident by Adams), beverages (including Pepsi-One by Pepsico),
    dessert and dairy product mixes, baked goods, alcoholic beverages, syrups,
    refrigerated and frozen desserts, and flavored protein powders and meal
    replacement powders.
