Aspartame is a new ingredient, made from genetically modified ingredients. I question whether it should be in dairy products at all; I am 100% certain that it should be NOWHERE without clear labelling. There are many reasons that I choose not to consume aspartame; it can be hard to identify (which it was not at first, before customer resistance—the industry touted it), and I am always angered when I have read the label yet missed the presence of aspartame (generic or by trade name). Please cut down my shopping time and unnecessary purchases made in error by requiring clear labels for aspartame (and GM ingredients generally).
N.B.: The above is my comment, submitted with my signature, on Change.org’s petition to the FDA—Say NO to hidden aspartame.
