Stand Up for Safe Food & Beverage Choices
We represent organizations from agriculture, business, consumer, labor, multicultural advocacy, and public health groups who believe Americans should know who to trust when making safe choices about their family’s diets.
About The Coalition
The Coalition for Safe Food and Beverage Choices has come together with a diverse group of members to support the integrity and role of the FDA and its scientific review process, including standing with them on their over 40 years of science on aspartame.

The Safety of Aspartame
The safety of food, beverages and medicine is one of the highest priorities for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We support the FDA’s review process, because we believe Americans should know who to trust when it comes to the safety of their food and beverage choices.
Currently, the safety of no- and low- calorie sweeteners are in question, including aspartame which is one of the most widely used low-and no calorie sweeteners that provides Americans with safe ways to reduce the sugar in their diets.
There’s been 40 years of research and more than 100 scientific studies that have affirmed the safety of aspartame. U.S. FDA scientists have reviewed the scientific data on the safety of aspartame and repeatedly concluded that it is safe, asserting that it is “one of the most exhaustively studied substances in the human food supply.”
When it comes to the safety of food and beverage choices, we must have a place to trust. We believe that is the FDA, the agency responsible for protecting the public’s health by ensuring the safety of our nation’s food supply.
DID YOU KNOW?
The FDA is the premier U.S. agency that relies on the highest quality science to ensure the safety of our foods, beverages, medicines and cosmetics.
The FDA was formed in 1906, and their credible scientific review process ensures that Americans can have more safe products to consume including products that reduce sugar in their diets.
