EU Food Safety Authority: Sucralose does not cause cancer risk


According to the foreign media reports, the Italian Ramazini Institute Morando Soffritti published research pointed out that the mouse experiments found that sucralose and cancer are associated.


However, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) commented that the Italian researchers used unconventional experimental design, obtained unreliable data, sucralose and cancer are not associated.

The EU Food Safety Authority also pointed out that the Italian experiment lacks behavior patterns, and the causal relationship between sucralose and cancer is not established.

The International Association of Sweeteners welcomes the views of the EU Food Safety Authority. The sweetener association Robert Peterson points out that the EU Food Safety Authority's opinion is consistent with what the international scientific community and regulators say is that sucralose is safe.

The EU Food Safety Authority conducted a risk assessment of the safety of sucralose as early as 1989. After the EU Food Safety Authority in 2000, the daily recommended intake was set at 15 mg per kilogram of body weight.

The sucrose sucrose is 600 times the sweetness of sucrose. In the world, it is used for more than 4,500 kinds of food, beverages and medical products.
