The Committee seeks to improve and communicate the physiological, metabolic and cognitive/behavioral science of low-calorie sweeteners and the general understanding of their role in dietary management, as well as evaluate how the consumption of LCS can contribute to overall health and wellness.

Why is this research valuable?

Low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) are used in a variety of beverages and foods to provide sweet taste without calories. Recently, questions have been raised about the impact of LCS on sweet taste conditioning, impact on hunger and satiety, efficacy in weight management, and patterns of use by the general population and by young people. In an obesogenic environment in which population intake of sugars is higher than recommended, it is important to understand the potential for LCS to serve as a useful tool for weight management. More recently, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines state that “replacing added sugars with non-caloric sweeteners may reduce calorie intake in the short-term, yet questions remain about their effectiveness as a weight management strategy."

This webinar is approved for 1 CEU by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Over 90% of North Americans exceed the recommended intake limit for added sugars. This webinar, hosted jointly by ILSI North America and Diabetes Canada, focuses on the role of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) as a tool for reducing intake of added sugars. Diabetes Canada has developed a position statement that emphasizes the urgent need for strategies to reduce the intake of added sugars by Canadians, especially those with or at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and recognizes that LCS are one viable tool available for added sugars intake reduction.

This webinar will also review what is meant by an Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for food additives which include LCS, and why it confers protection. Results of a scoping review of the nutrition literature and the application of the ADI for LCS in that body of work will be presented. Speakers will address how the ADI can be used in nutrition research related to LCS, how to move toward a systematic approach for evaluating LCS intakes in nutrition studies, and the translation of this information for practice. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.
