When I was changing my diet I had to follow basic rules. No food or drinks that had any sweeteners in them were allowed, no matter what the name was. Aspartame was the one most likely to be in all sorts of foods. The other thing was if there were two or more unrecognizable ingredients in the product I could not eat that.
My primary source of nutrition had to be real food. The food industry is an industry that I believe has not so much do with food rather more to do with food processing and industry. My nutrition therapist explained to me that the body had no idea what to do with the foreign object as the artificial sweetener, and would try to store it in the strangest places. The result would be muscular and joint pain.
