Others Sweeteners may not help lose weight

Celia Hoffman | 05 January, 2019, 02:56

"There was no compelling evidence to indicate important health benefits of non-sugar sweetener use on a range of health outcomes", wrote the authors, adding that "Potential harms from the consumption of non-sugar sweeteners could not be excluded." .

Meerpohl's team also did not rule out that non-sugar sweeteners might still show some benefit in future trials.

As well as weight and oral health it also considered people's risk of cancer, heart disease, kidney disease and effects on their mood and behaviour.

Acesulfame K, a sweetener 200 times sweeter than sugar contains the carcinogen methylene chloride, and may have potential to cancer-causing risk.

"For the vast majority of people, there probably aren't any health benefits to non-sugar sweeteners", said Dr. Aziz Alkatib, a cardiologist at Detroit Medical Center's Harper Hospital in MI.

To clarify the health effects of sugar substitutes, the researchers reviewed information from 56 previous studies that compared people who used sugar substitutes with those who did not. Another issue, pointed out in an editorial accompanying the new report, was that Meerpohl and his colleagues lumped together studies comparing artificial sweeteners to non-caloric placebos with those comparing artificial sweeteners to sugar.

However, the researchers stressed that the quality of evidence in numerous studies was low, so confidence in the results is limited and more research is needed.

A littler increment in body mass index score was found in children who expended non-sugar sugars contrasted and sugar, yet admission of non-sugar sugars made no distinctions to body weight.

Overall, the results show that, for most outcomes, there seemed to be no statistically or clinically relevant differences between those exposed to non-sugar sweeteners and those not exposed, or between different doses of non-sugar sweeteners. For instance, in adults, findings from a couple of little examinations proposed little enhancements in body mass index and fasting blood glucose levels with non-sugar sugars, however the assurance of this proof was low.

Malik agreed that the findings "highlight the need for larger and longer-term studies of NSS [non-sugar sweeteners] to guide policy development".

Seven to 10-year-olds should have no more than 24 grams, and children aged 11 and over should have 30g or less.

Artificial sweeteners may reverse weight loss journey, research claims that has been recently disclosed by the journal The BMJ.

Based on existing evidence, she says use of non-sugar sweeteners as a replacement for free sugars, particularly in sugar sweetened drinks, "could be a helpful strategy to reduce cardiometabolic risk [chances of having diabetes, heart disease or stroke] among heavy consumers, with the ultimate goal of switching to water or other healthy drinks".

New European research has found little evidence to suggest that non-sugar sweeteners have any significant benefits for health when used instead of regular sugars.

The research comes as public health officials in the United Kingdom have warned they will call for more taxes on sugary foods if companies don't reduce amounts in their food.

The chief nutritionist at Public Health England, Dr Alison Tedstone, this week called for a "pudding tax" to force companies to cut sugar levels or make customers pay.
