In order to maintain a palatable sweet taste, minus the calories, food manufacturers have developed a range of food and beverage products with sugar substitutes, artificial sweeteners or low or no-caloric sweeteners. Many types of sugar substitutes have been legally approved for commercial use. However many individuals do not fully understand what these sugar substitutes really are. There also alleged concerns especially on safety issues of these “sweeteners” as they are loosely referred to and other misperceptions among the public.
