The same-sized soda sweetened with sugar would add around 140 calories (600 kilojoules). Different brands offer a variety of aspartame sweetener products for different uses, so it is hard to generalize about what’s in them and how to use them. However, manufacturers of the “spoon-for-spoon” granulated-sugar substitutes typically add →maltodextrin as a bulking agent. For example, the ingredients listed for Equal Spoonful are maltodextrin, aspartame, and →acesulfame potassium (often blended with aspartame).

GRAS (GENERALLY RECOGNIZED AS SAFE) Before a sugar substitute or sweetener can be legally added to a food or beverage in United States, it must either have FDA approval or be accepted as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe). GRAS dates back to 1959, when the FDA established a list of food substances that were exempt from the then-new requirement that manufacturers test food additives before putting them on the market. It includes “any substance that is intentionally added to food . . ”5 Manufacturers can “self-affirm” the GRAS status of food additives they use in their products.
