Who Makes Aspartame?... That's Right, MONSANTO!

Submitted by SadInAmerica on Wed, 06/25/2008 - 8:18pm.



Even the pharmaceutical companies are in bed with Monsanto!

Aspartame is banned in all childrens products in the European Common Market. Why not here? Why not Canada? Is not the life, health and safety of our children more important than corporate profits and greed?

Pharmaceutical Companies Use Aspartame!

Aspartame is not only used in food, per se, but is also used in pharmaceutical products. You might be surprised by the number of products that contain aspartame. A sample research project was initiated in April 1994, with requests to companies that produce pharmaceuticals. A number of companies failed to respond to a request for information. Some companies did respond.

Making sure children never miss a dose of aspartame appears to be a priority!

Frequently it is not listed on the outside of the package but in the small print on the slip of paper inside the package.  If you find a product you bought contains this poison return it to the store and insist on getting your money back or a substitute that does not contain aspartame.

NOTE - On the European Common Market Aspartame is banned for all children's products!

Why not in Canada and the USA?  

Because Monsanto pays off the FDA, the American Medical Association, The American Dietetic and Diabetic Associations, Congressmen and Senators and virtually anyone who gets in the way, and in other countries too. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation caught them red handed and aired a program where Monsanto was trying to bribe a couple of Canadian Doctors at Health Canada.

Author Peter Sills writing in the Toronto Globe and Mail said, after a three and a half year court case against Monsanto, brought by railroad workers exposed to dioxin following a train derailment had ended and in which the jury awarded a $16 million in punitive damages against Monsanto, "The evidence of Monsanto executives at the trial portrayed a corporate culture where sales and profits were given a higher priority than the safety of products and it's workers. They (Monsanto) just didn't care about the health and safety of their workers.  Instead of trying to make things safer, they relied on intimidation and threatened layoffs to keep their employees working.

Beware of Pharmacio Corp. They were set up by the very same people who gave you the aspartame.

Thanks - as always your blog is useful with loads of info!

i dont know who has u all believing that childrens products in europe do not contain aspartame, but i can assure u as a father of 2 who checks ingredients, they certainly do. i have read things for and against its use, as a precaution i chose about a yr ago to make sure that my family and myself eat and drink a healthy diet where we dont need much in the way of artificial anything. none of us are obese, we are all a healthy weight and i must also say that i have noticed a remarkable improvement in my sons concentration and behaviour since the diet change.

i think if we all just made sure we all watched what we ate and drank this wouldnt be an issue. and before anyone says, i AM on a VERY limited income and it IS possible to manage this.

I thought Searle made aspartame not Monsanto.

Richar Coldman (not verified) | Mon, 10/26/2009 - 8:30pm

In the late 70's when the then CEO of Searle, Donald Rumsfeld used his political influence to overturn the FDA's ban on Aspartame, it may have been an independent company. Of that I'm not certain, but certainly Searle became a subsidiary of the GM giant Monsanto, who are busy poisoning the whole world and destroying the livlihoods of farmers in the thirld world. The rapidly increasing suicide rate among farmers in India is a direct result of the activities of Monsanto.

ah, we can finally agree with the "John E. Garst, Ph.D." who goes around the internet and tries to discredit the health dangers due to aspartame. Indeed, the references provided by snopes are giving incomplete, and inaccurate data; and that has long been known. About that bridge; what is the name of it, and how much?

The Calorie Central Council is an international association of manufacturers of low-calorie and reduced-fat foods and beverages. The Calorie Central Council, aka CCC, has members that include manufacturers of alternative sweeteners, fat replacers and low-calorie bulking agents. This same CCC runs aspartame.org. The U.S. patent on aspartame expired in 1992. Since then the company has faced hot competition in market for aspartame from other manufacturers, including Ajinomoto, Merisant and the Holland Sweetener Company, (which stopped making the chemical in late 2006) It is J.W. Childs Equity Partners II, L.P. who purchased the NutraSweet Co. from Monsanto in 2000. The truth regarding Aspartame: Is Aspartame Really Safe? and how it came to approval: Donald Rumsfeld In Bed With Aspartame That level of daily consumption that is judged to be safe per the FDA is 50 milligrams (50 Milligrams = 0.0017636980974790206 Ounces) per kilogram (1 Kilogram = 2.2046 pounds) of body weight per day. The FDA considers Aspartame to be one of the most thoroughly tested and studied food additives the agency has every approved. More than 100 toxicologists and clinicians studied and the agency has reviewed, confirming that Aspartame is safe for the general population. (Harvey, 2002) Some math… 0.00176369809747902 ounces = 50mg 2.204600 pounds = 1 kilo 0.0000352739619495804 ounces = 1 mg So per the FDA for every 2.2046 of your pounds you can have 0.00176369809747902 ounces Divide your weight by 2.2046 Example: if you are 100 pounds, 100/2.2046=45.359702 Multiply your result, in this case 45.359702, by 0.00176369809747902 ounces = 0.080000821 ounces. 0.080000821 ounces converts to 2267.95mg. That's your limit if you're 100lbs. 0.080000821 ounces, or 2267.95mg per day says the FDA. That's the limit set by the FDA. It gets worse. According to the FDA, Aspartame users are supposedly only consuming 4-7 percent of those 0.080000821 ounces. Four percent of 0.080000821 ounces = 0.003200033 ounces Four percent 2267.95mg = 90.718mg Yet one soda can in the United States is 12 (Twelve) ounces. 12 ounces = 340,194.278mg

This post is pure garbage! Ditto the Monsanto inaccuracy given above. Ditto the snopes references given above. No one with any credibility whatsoever believes aspartame criticisms anymore. You are fighting a battle that was long lost. But I have this bridge for sale. John E. Garst, Ph.D. (Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology, and Toxicology)

Both Merisant and the NutraSweet Co. trace their roots to the Monsanto Co. Merisant purchased the *rights to sell a tabletop version of aspartame in 2000 from Monsanto*, while *NutraSweet purchased the manufacturing and wholesale rights* to the product. Merisant's *lease rights* to the NutraSweet brand name end this summer. ASPARTAME Is Manufactured By Monsanto Using Genetically Modified Bacteria Monsanto is making a *killing* on aspartame regardless of what company is involved.

Actually Monsanto sold it's sweetener business in Feb. 2000. It is currently owned by Merisant. There is a wealth of information debunking the claims that aspartame is harmful. http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/aspartame.asp http://www.aspartame.org/aspartame_myths.html We know the lies. they propagate on the internet when people don't bother to do basic fact checking.
