ASPARTAME: Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth [VIDEO]

We all have at least a bit of a sweet tooth, right? Well, most of us deprive ourselves at one time or another out of fear of excess calories. But some people also avoid foods and beverages containing the low-calorie sweetener aspartame because they see confusing headlines and suspicious "science" about its safety and benefits.

Our new video—featuring a character we affectionately call "Toothy"—sets the record straight about aspartame, which is perfectly safe to consume (except for a small number of people with a condition called PKU).

Best of all, it provides a great, sweet taste without the calories, making it a very effective way to help manage your weight!
