Many consumers have given up the soda habit but for those people who still drink it–even if it is just the occasional glass at a work or social function where nothing else is made available–you should be aware that Pepsi has decided (for profit reasons) to put Aspartame back in some of their low-cal versions. This is especially important for consumers who know they have adverse reactions to this synthetic additive. (See the Food Additives to Avoid Listing [FATAL] in our Book “The Food Hacker’s Handbook” for information on scientific studies linking this additive to health problems.) Bottom line, as always: Read the ingredients labels before putting any processed food into your body!
