Is aspartame helpful for people with diabetes?
Yes. The American Diabetes Association has stated that aspartame is acceptable as a sugar substitute for diabetics.
As a sweetener, aspartame can reduce or replace sugar (carbohydrate) and calories in foods and beverages. As such, products sweetened with aspartame offer people with diabetes greater variety and flexibility in budgeting their total carbohydrate intake. People with diabetes are more likely to comply with a healthful meal plan when they are able to eat foods that they enjoy.
