Calorie Control Council Statement

Posted on

Leading health organizations such as the American Heart Association, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the American Diabetes Association agree that low-calorie sweeteners help limit calorie and sugar intake and do not lead to weight gain.   


Claims that low-calorie sweeteners cause cravings and weight gain are speculative and misleading.  More than 40 research studies show that obesity and cravings are not caused by low-calorie sweeteners. 

Health Professionals agree that managing calories is key to weight control and low-calorie sweeteners can be an important tool as part of an overall healthy diet and lifestyle.
