Sugar-Free Sweetener’s Have Few Health Benefits

A study led by University of Freiburg in Germany and the University of Pécs in Hungary reports no evidence of artificial sweeteners having a health benefit over sugar. The review included 56 studies of adult and children examining the use of nonsugar sweeteners on health. 

Researchers report those studies that found some evidence that adults using nonsugar substitutes had a lower body mass index and better blood glucose levels were not robust. They also had few participants and were of short duration.

No significant differences were reported in body weight of children with nonsugar sweeteners  intake  when compared with sugar intake.

The full study, “Association Between Intake of Non-Sugar Sweeteners and Health Outcomes: Systematic Review and Meta-Analyses of Randomised and Non-Randomised Controlled Trials and Observational Studies,” is available in the British Medical Journal
