Food Management Today quotes Jamie Cartwright on the World Health Organisation’s assessment of aspartame

Aspartame, an artificial sweetener found in Diet Coke, is “possibly” carcinogenic but only if you drink the equivalent of nine to 14 cans every day, the World Health Organisation has ruled.

Jamie Cartwright, Partner, comments:

“The review on aspartame reflects the clear divergence of thought that exists within the food safety and labelling space.

“The key lies in managing how any health implications are communicated in line with the of risk associated with the product, while being cautious not to dilute key messages that are necessary for consumer awareness. The ‘possible carcinogen’ classification is indicative of the mixed evidence suggesting a link, but the labelling requirement will likely have a profound impact for retailers selling the product, in terms of both the cost associated with the labelling regulations, as well as maintaining consumer confidence.

“It’s imperative that regulators strike the necessary balance between informative labelling and consumer confidence, so that individuals are empowered to make informed choices about the products they consume.”
