New Study Shows Sugar Substitutes Do Not Overstimulate the Sweet Taste Buds

A new study from scientists at Penn State University shows that low-calorie sweeteners, when used in amounts typical for preparing foods and beverages, do not overstimulate a person’s sweet taste buds. These results provide additional evidence that low-calorie sweeteners do not lead to sweet cravings and can be a helpful part of a healthy lifestyle. The study, supported by the National Institutes for Health, showed that participants perceived the sweetness of sugar substitutes at lower concentrations than real sugar or full-calorie sweeteners.
