Sucralose with Cancer
According to media report, Morando Soffritti from the Italian Institute of Ramazini Research found that sucralose was associated with cancer after mice experiments.
However, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) commented that Italian researchers had used unconventional experimental designs to produce unreliable data.and sucralose was not associated with cancer.
The European Food Safety Agency also noted that the Italian experiment lacked behavioral patterns and that the causal relationship between sucralose and cancer was not established.
The International Sweeteners Association agreed the comments of the EU Food Safety Administration.Robert Peterson from The sweetener Association points out that the EU food Safety Agency's comments are in line with the international scientific community and regulatory authorities.The conclusion is that sucralose is safe.
The European Food Safety Agency first launched a risk assessment of sucralose safety in 1989.Then, in 2000, the EU Food Safety Agency set its daily recommended intake at 15 mg per kilogram of body weight. Sucralose is 600 times times sweeter than sucrose. It is used in more than 4500 kinds of food, beverage and medical products in the world.
