For those of you that don't know, Aspartame is an artificial sweetener used as a sugar substitute. It's found in a lot of the low fat and fat free products we buy. Here's something you probably didn't know about it. When Aspartame hits your stomach acids, it breaks down and mixes becoming formaldehyde. Doesn't sound too appealing does it? I recently read this in a health book I picked up. I didn't believe it and had to do the research. It's true. Now I'm checking to be sure whatever items I'm picking up does not contain formaldehyde. Though it's got me wondering... how many people out there are not aware of this?

Interesting, I did not know that but I stopped using sugar substitutes a while ago (I never used them a lot anyway). I use regular sugar in moderation, I know a lot of people use "raw sugar" instead of sugar substitutes also.
