Can I eat artificial sweeteners?

The consumption of artificial sweeteners available in the market is considered safe within the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI). Nevertheless, experts are increasingly advising to restrict their consumption due to the lack of nutritional benefits they offer. Furthermore, they are often associated with highly processed products, the excessive consumption of which is linked to health issues.


People undergoing cancer treatment can safely consume sweeteners or foods containing them, always within the context of a balanced diet and in moderate quantities. Nevertheless, the World Health Organization (WHO) advises against their consumption for the general population, only justifying their use in people diagnosed with diabetes, where artificial sweeteners can replace sugars that have a greater impact on blood sugar levels.
