Artificial sweeteners

Anti-technology urban legends abound in regard to food.  The historical record includes butter producers who wanted to ban margarine and straight whiskey producers who wanted blended whiskey that contained fewer toxins to be labeled “imitation whiskey.”  Looks like the chatter about artificial sweeteners being more harmful than sugar can finally be laid to rest; check this out.

Serving suggestion: The article in the link in the sentence above says that saccharine has a metallic aftertaste.  Not in all applications, though. I’ve found that if I substitute saccharine for simple syrup in tiki drinks, the alcohol and tart fruit juices completely mask the aftertaste.
