Where Can I Buy Aspartame-Free Diet Pepsi
I am drinking Pepsi One with Aspartame (contains Phenylalanine) in Canada; all they have is diet Pepsi with Aspartame in my city. I have been told that it is only available as ‘diet Pepsi without Aspartame. Is there any way to purchase it in Canada?
We have been told this too – by a Pepsi Cola representative.
They said in Canada, diet Pepsi with Aspartame is also known as ‘Pepsi One.’
In the U.S., it’s called “diet Pepsi” and has no added aspartame.
The one sold in Canada contains Aspartame in the ingredients list.
They don’t even use Splenda here in Canada, even though they do everywhere else! We’ve been told that Coca-Cola uses Splenda, so perhaps we’ll have better luck finding our beloved Diet Coke alternative closer to home… but I doubt it!!! Reply Delete
I love Diet Pepsi ONE from Walmart:
I always drink five 8 oz glasses of water a day because it feels so good when my body is hydrated that way! I usually drink it in the late afternoon because I have found that my stomach gets upset when I ingest it in the mornings.
Aspartame is a popular sugar substitute and additive in many beverages and foods. Aspartame is the main ingredient found in over 6,000 products on the market today, including diet soda, yogurt, gum, candy…even some vitamins. This artificial sweetener has been on the market for years, but recently more people are becoming aware of its adverse health effects.
Aspartame was initially developed as an anti-ulcer drug by James Schlatter, a chemist at G.D. Searle Company, in 1965 while working on an ulcer drug project that involved creating new chemical compounds that would stop gastric acid secretion. It was sold for millions of dollars as NutraSweet or Equal when its mass production succeeded after 1976.
Aspartame is an acronym for Aspartic acid, Phenylalanine, and methanol. It can be found in diet soda and artificial sweeteners such as NutraSweet and Equal. The FDA once listed over 92 symptoms that can result from consuming products with Aspartame, but now they say there are 92 “symptoms” not associated with the sweetener. How many of these symptoms sound familiar? According to Dr. H.J. Roberts, M.D., who says he has identified every sign linked to Aspartame:
– Headache – Seizures – Dizziness (vertigo) – Trouble thinking or paying attention – Change in vision – Allergies (itching, swelling, eczema, hives) – Numbness in fingers and toes – change in personality or mood swings – Loss of taste – Joint pain
Why is it bad for you?
Aspartame breaks down into three components:
50% phenylalanine, 40% aspartic acid, and 10% methanol. Methanol breaks down further into formaldehyde in the body used to preserve specimens. Methanol also breaks down into formic acid, a toxic substance that acts as a “formidable” enemy of mitochondria, the energy powerhouse within each cell.
This means all types of cells, including your brain cells, can lead to Parkinson’s disease, clinical depression, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, MS, Myasthenia Gravis, Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Phenylalanine breaks down into diketopiperazine (DKP), which is known to cause brain tumors. The National Cancer Institute listed DKP as a carcinogen back in 1977, but the FDA chose not to require any warning labels on products containing it. Aspartame manufacturers must put a warning label on their containers for pregnant women because Phenylalanine can cross the placenta causing physical defects in unborn children, including mental retardation!
Aspartic acid or aspartate is an excitotoxin that stimulates nerves cells to death triggering symptoms such as headache, fatigue, and mood swings. Aspartic acid is also a precursor to another excitotoxin glutamic acid that competes for the same receptors.
Is Aspartame bad for you:
Yes, you should stay away from products containing Aspartame. It is a carcinogen and an excitotoxin that can cause serious health problems over time, including cancer, arthritis, headaches, diabetes, depression…
Yes, it is incredibly toxic to your body! But there are also other artificial sweeteners on the market. Here are some of them:
saccharin, sucralose, neotame, acesulfame potassium (Ace-K) …and don’t forget about sugar which can lead to obesity.
