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. 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. More recently, the 2020 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) “recommends these food ingredients be considered as an option for managing body weight." At the same time, evidence for associations of LCS beverages with adiposity in adults and children was graded as limited. Given that the DGAC also recommended that the limit for added sugars in the diet be reduced from 10 to less than 6 percent of energy, there is an opportunity to develop evidence around the potential role for LCS in meeting this guideline and supporting alignment with recommended eating patterns toward optimal health.

Over 90% of North Americans exceed the recommended intake limit for added sugars. This webinar, hosted jointly by ILSI North America and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, focuses on the role of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) as a tool for reducing intake of added sugars. This webinar will review what is meant by an Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for food additives which include LCS, and why it confers protection. Speakers will address approaches for evaluating nutrition research studies that examine LCS and the translation of this information for practice. The AACE perspective on LCS as a dietary management tool will be presented. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.
