Are Sweeteners and Sugar Substitutes still current?
Naujoks, Christian / Klöters, Heinz / Michel, Barbara
Artificial sweeteners, i.e. saccharin and sugar substitutes, are not or only minimally cariogenic. As additives they are subjected to a health evaluation before approval. Though artificial sweeteners are therefore considered safe, possible long-term consequences for health are a topic of discussion, e.g. in terms of the development of caries, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. To what extent the preference for sweetness is increased by artificial sweeteners has not yet been clarified.
