Many people who are watching their weight resort to non-nutritive/artificial sweeteners in their daily diets. These sweeteners were first marketed to people with diabetes as a means of providing a sweet taste without the risk of increasing their blood sugar. The idea was that people with diabetes would not have to count it as a sugar (since it is zero-calories) and respectively not adjust their insulin doses.
Little did the makers of these products know that this was the fix all sweet-tooth dieters were waiting for. However, are these products too good to be true?
