Harmful effects and Rising Health Concerns about Artificial Sweeteners
Regarding the harmful effects and rising health concerns of table sugar, growing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, like diabetes and heart diseases, consumers are now increasingly switching towards artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, sucralose and saccharin over natural sweeteners as they are safe and do not add any extra calorie to their diet.

In the year1982, PepsiCo took the plunge and launched Diet Pepsi sweetened with NutraSweet. It became a massive hit and not be left out, Coke soon followed. The diet segment had blossomed the soft drink sales by the end of the year. Thus, Coke and Pepsi felt that they finally had solid diet products. In addition, they saw that these products not only grew the diet segment but made the entire carbonated soft drinks category grow.

At last, it is a sugar molecule in which three hydrogen-oxygen groups are replaced with three chlorine atoms that is not metabolized by the body. Sucralose is also 600 times as sweet as sugar. To get the FDA approval in 1998, Tate & Lyle partnered with Johnson & Johnson.
