I found out to my surprise and horror recently that Sugar Free Ribena contains Aspartame, a sweatener that’s been railroaded into the modern diet by fizzy drink companies (usually under the prettier name of Nutrasweet) and now appears in a whole lot of things it really shouldn’t. Like Sugar Free Ribena, for instance – a cordial drink that’s aimed squarely at children.
I know it’s very easy to create anxiety over some food additive due to the simple fact that nobody really has the time to check the ingredients of absolutely everything they consume. However, when it comes to Aspartame, you can and should avoid it as best you can.
Have a quick skim through “Aspartame: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You” if you haven’t made up your mind yet.
