In recent years, the food industry has created many additives to improve the taste and shelf life of food. These are a variety of colors, preservatives, flavors and, of course, sweeteners. One of them is acesulfame potassium, a substance that is 200 times sweeter than sugar .
It was created in Germany in the late 60s. When it was created, everyone was happy, believing that it was possible to refuse harmful sugar. People with diabetes were especially hoping. But in fact, this sweetener turned out to be very harmful. Oddly enough, when people
began to abandon sugar in favor of its substitutes, the number of overweight people increased significantly.
Studies have determined that this substance provokes the development of tumors and adversely affects the cardiovascular system. Although it has a positive property - it does not cause allergies, but, like most food additives, this sweetener is one of the most harmful.
Acesulfame potassium is also the most common nutritional supplement. It is added to carbonated drinks, juices, confectionery, dairy products, chewing gum, and even to medicines and toothpaste.
Why is it harmful to eat?
Acesulfame potassium is completely not absorbed in the body and can accumulate, causing various diseases. This substance is designated on products as E 950. This sugar substitute is also a part of complex sweeteners. The name of these food additives is “Aspasvit”, “Slamix”, “Eurosvit” and others. Along with acesulfame, they contain forbidden additives such as cyclamate and not yet banned, but toxic aspartame, which should not be heated above 30 degrees. When heated, even when ingested, it breaks down into phenylalanine and methanol. Formaldehyde may also form in reaction with certain substances.
Aspartame is the only food supplement that has been proven to be harmful. In addition to metabolic disorders, it can cause poisoning. Despite this, it is added in large quantities to many products and to baby food.
Acesulfame potassium, especially in combination with aspartame, increases appetite and leads to dehydration, which quickly causes obesity. They can provoke epilepsy, brain tumor, diabetes, chronic fatigue. Its use is especially harmful for children, weakened patients and pregnant women.
These sweeteners also contain phenylalanine, which is especially harmful to people with white skin and causes hormonal imbalance in them. It accumulates in the body for a long time, and then causes serious illness and infertility.
If you take a large amount of this sweetener or frequently use products with its content, the following symptoms may appear: weakness, headache, nausea, irritability, joint pain and even loss of memory, vision and hearing.
Sugar substitutes are not needed for healthy people, they only bring harm. Therefore, it is better to drink tea with sugar than a sweet carbonated drink. If you are afraid to get better, then use honey as a sweetener.
