If you ever wondered how they make the artificial sweetner aspertame, wonder no more. The European patent for aspertame is now available online, and reveals the alternative to sugar is made from the excrement of genetically modified E. coli bacteria! Ewwww! Scientists breed the genetically modified version of the E. coli then use the proteins it defects to harvest a specific acid that’s needed to produce the artificial sweetner. Controversy continues to grow around Monsanto, who produces aspertame as well as other food additives. Recently Coca-Cola defended its use of aspertame in its products, saying studies support the safety of its beverages. Now that you know what’s in it, would you deem it safe?
