Aspartame in Milk Without a Label? Big Dairy Petitions FDA For Approval

Activist Post

Two powerful dairy organizations, The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF), are petitioning the Food and Drug Administration to allow aspartame and other artificial sweeteners to be added to milk and other dairy products without a label.

The FDA currently allows the dairy industry to use "nutritive sweeteners" including sugar and high fructose corn syrup in many of their products. Nutritive sweeteners are defined as sweeteners with calories.

This petition officially seeks to amend the standard of identification for milk, cream, and 17 other dairy products like yogurt, sweetened condensed milk, sour cream, and others to provide for the use of any "safe and suitable sweetener" on the market.

They claim that aspartame and other artificial sweeteners would promote healthy eating and is good for school children.

According to the FDA notice issued this week:
IDFA and NMPF state that the proposed amendments would promote more healthful eating practices and reduce childhood obesity by providing for lower-calorie flavored milk products. They state that lower-calorie flavored milk would particularly benefit school children who, according to IDFA and NMPF, are more inclined to drink flavored milk than unflavored milk at school.

Although the FDA considers aspartame to be a "safe and suitable" sweetener, a recent Yale University study appears to directly challenge the claim that aspartame would reduce obesity. In fact, the study concluded just the opposite, that artificial sweeteners actually contributed to obesity and Type 2 diabetes.

The IDFA and NMPF argue "that the proposed amendments to the milk standard of identity would promote honesty and fair dealing in the marketplace" yet they don't want changes to the labels on dairy products.
Accordingly, the petitioners state that milk flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners should be labeled as milk without further claims so that consumers can “more easily identify its overall nutritional value.”
It's unclear how consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners without labels.

Quoting Section 130.10 of the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990, the dairy giants claim a new label is not required because sugar is added to milk without labeling it, and "the modified food is not inferior in performance" and "'reduced calorie' (labels) are not attractive to children" so marketing as such is of no benefit or detriment.

The FDA has opened public comments until May 21 for anyone interested to "submit comments, data, and information concerning the need for, and the appropriateness of, amending the standard of identity for milk and the additional dairy standards."

Pay attention, share and SPEAK UP people - this is going on in foods all over your pantry and refrigerator shelves! They are claiming you don't really NEED to know what you are really eating.

After all, we all know that they have nothing but our best interests at heart, right???

Labeling foods honestly might make them 'less attractive' to us and our children - gee, is that because we know poison when we see it by name?

I an sooo very thankful to the farmer who provides us with fresh, unpasteurized milk, and fresh eggs laid that morning. It's all organic, not one drop of pesticide, HFCS, aspartame or any other crap like that. This is outrageous! They're killing our children and causing major health problems for them, not the least of which is autism and mental retardation. I've started growing all my vegetables as well. The whole food system is completely poisoned!

I dont' eat or drink anything with Aspartame in it. It caused Acid Reflux in me. I cured it with Apple Cider Vinager tablets (900 mg on up after every meal) and in swearing off both Aspartame products and meat. I also lost over 30 lbs. Never buy anything with Aspartame and use Facebook, etc. to let everyone know how bad this sh.. is.

Adding aspartame to milk is like adding cyanide to arsenic; both are toxic. Milk is great food for a baby cow - not to good for people though.

Aspartame would still be included in the ingredients list on the back. The proposed change is just for "Standards of Identity", which regulate how a product can be described elsewhere on the package.

So remember to read the ingredients and you'll be just fine.

Grow your own, eat locally grown, cook your own meals, don't eat packaged, use whole foods, coop a cow or give up milk. it's bad for you anyway. Start doing the right thing and let's see what the big "owners of the world" do then. It's up to us. Don't say it is too expensive. you are already paying for it in externalized costs such as other people's health care costs for eating wrong. Man in the mirror.

Google "Aspartame Poisoning". There are some very serious allegations regarding the effects of aspartame, from blindness to MS, autoimmune diseases, and much more. As far as autism and things of the like, including SIDS, look into the links between vaccinations and childhood disease. Put it all together, and I believe we have stumbled upon biological warfare. These things aren't an accident. They can't be...Monsanto is also a very interesting company to look into. Couple them with Big Pharma, and it spells disaster for everyone. Destroy education, health, the economy, put some "eyes in the sky", and we are all screwed.

This will get passed. This is all part of a long term depopulation agenda. Aspartame was officially engineered as a bioweapon before getting pushed through the FDA via Rumsfeld (secretary of defence) as "Safe" to put into the food supply. Drink up or speak up.

Markus said...

One of the componenets Aspartame breaks down into in the human body is formaldehyde, a known carcinogen. Milk is loaded with IGF-1, a growth hormone also found naturally in the human body. Concentrations of IGF-1 have been found in biopsies of tumors/cancer, so adding extra IGF-1 to the body is like throwing gasoline on a fire. Animals could break down the formaldehyde further (to formic acid), but humans can't. So we're stuck with the damage it causes to our tissues.

Aspartame in milk is a horrific idea, unless the goal is to perpetuate poor health, accellerate disease and possibly death.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like most are already drinking milk. 99% of milk is pasteurised, but sometimes marked Fresh, Natural etc. Did you know that pasteurisation destroys 90% of the phosphotase enzyme needed for calcium absorption, destroys the immune-boosting 'friendly' bacteria, but not the e-coli, salmonella, listeria etc. That immune boosting whey proteins are damaged. That a newborn calf fed only on pasteurised milk dies in 6 weeks. You would be much better off drinking a herbal super-tea such as Jiao Gulan, (gynostemma pentaphillium).

You better believe this goes back to another UN directive that is being inserted by bureaucrats to allow Codex Alimentarius to approve and list Aspartame. UN population control is being inserted every day into our regulations, (GMO'S, etc.) which become law without congressional debate, via the Federal Register.

(THE PLANNED POPULATION THEY WISH FOR IS TO ALLOW MAYBE ONE MILLION AT MOST TO SURVIVE, TO BE THE THE SLAVES OF THE SUPER ELITE BEHIND THIS TAKEOVER OF THE WORLD WE NOW SEE, WHICH INCLUDES THE EURO AND THE REST OF THE RESIDENTS OF COUNTRIES NATO HAS BEEN, AND IS, KILLING FOR
CONTROL: LIBYA FORWARD.

This is happening from the Federal Reserve (front for the UN NATO and Rothschild et al), the death wish for the slaves they are making of us, down to everything we use, by control of the money supply which is unconstitutional and immoral . The aims of the elite are being translated with the blessing of our politicians, as with the ""Food Safety Act" S-510, which basically, was with the blessing of the FDA (Food & Death A[ssociation].

FOLLOW THE "MONEY" WHICH IS A DEBT CURRENCY CON JOB THAT MEANS TO CREATE THIS DEATH WISH NEW WORLD ORDER CREATED BY THE BANKING CARTELS (G 20, ETC, IMF , WORLD BANK, BIS). through to the Military Industrial complex.

CODEX IS BEING PUT INTO EFFECT BY THE BACK DOOR AT THE FDA, TO DENY HEALTH PROMOTING NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS, RAW MILK ETC. BY "MILITARY ASSASSINS" SENT BY THE FDA TO ACCOMPLISH THIS CONTROL OF THE ENTIRE FOOD SUPPLY .

THIS IS TO DESENSITIZE US TO THE IDEA THAT THEY CAN DECIDE OUR FATES, NOW WITH GUN CONTROL BY EXECUTIVE UNCONSTITUTIONAL ORDERS.

Nazi Germany and Communist Russia are being re-enacted daily. See it for what it is: a plan to make them rulers of the world, and Obama wants to be King of the world, so he fits the job description as dictator.

So you thought milk came from contented cows and dairy farmers were all nice guys, well neither of them realy exist except on the periphery of what we call civilized living.
Clear into adulhood drank whole milk,made me fat but I could burn it off without it leaving chemicals behind that were killing me.
Used to look for farmers with Jersey cows because of their heavy creme content but there are otherbreeds out there that do as well but not holsteines which are your familiar black and white tv cows.
The cows themselves are no more than massed produced animals especially your Holsteins
They come from farms called dairy replacers and their growth is sped up by artificial means and even fed hormones and bred way to early.
With your creme heavy milk tou can easily make your own butter in a one gallon jar. And without much work added make damn tasty soft farmers cheese.
All this in your own kitchen and living room while sitting on your butts in front of tv.
If you have never ate homemade ice cream with real cream then you ate crap.
Ice creams have more non organic chemicals than damn near any prepared food has.
1cow for 5 people gave away over a gallon a week could of gave away more but people wanted to buy.
Not all can raise own cow; someplace ta gotta have a bull, but can form mini coops and multiple owners in finished profuct, the milk ,with private ownership of cows.
Cows need lots of grass but silage is great and you can make it out of non GM leftover or whole plant corn.
Mama nature has many interconnecting ways that recognized make you notice how "artficial" your world has become.

There is only one group of six million people on earth which truly hates everybody else and wants them dead, or at best totally enslaved. This is in pursuance of a Millennial Agenda which is not recorded in the Bible, but which is recorded in the most disgusting book ever written, the Babylonian Talmud. 2 Peter ch 3 v 8 destroys the claim of a millennium ruled over by Jesus Christ. Menachem Begin explained clearly what they think of you and what they want to do to you, in his speech beginning "We are the Master Race..."
The media is 96% owned by the Jews. Ditto all the alphabet agencies via their control of the government via the Fed. There is a war going on which can only have one of two outcomes. Adolf Hitler realised this and tried to eradicate the cancer, but the so called Allies, ruled over by Jews like Roosevelt and Churchill, and financed by the Rothschilds, prevented this from happening. En route, they perpetrated a real holocaust, ie the physical burning of tens of thousands of goyische men women and children, in Dresden, Hamburg, Koln, Hiroshima, etc; and then had the gall to claim that they were the victims.

It sounds insane to me, that these things are not giving on the label. For anyone who is on a diet, or is trying to look after their health, these things need to be added to the label, so they can make their minds up, whether they want the product, or not. I think also, that if a product is changed, then we should no about the content, so we can choose between the too. Otherwise, what is to stop other organizations putting things into our food and drink, and not telling us about it. This could lead to dangerous times, if you are alergic to those particular chemicals, and they are not given on the label.

Farmers do indeed dend thrir milk to corporate firms yet there are now damn few independent farmers that soley are dairy and lets get this streight they are all subsidized by our government and they need thr corporate lobbyist to keep it coming.
Get this even if your dairy bbuyer does mot use RBST or other forms you mudt place am aff saying no difgerence between your molk and others.
Milk is even tighter a controlled market than oil and is more run by corporates than any gov import.
Even the cream content is controlled by corp and to aid farmers they allow additional water content.
A few years back dairy and beef farmers got together to pass a bill limiting # of dairy cows under feds buying out almost all small dairy farms in order to keep milk prices up.
Cheese firms mostly today buy goat or seprrsted cream from corps; THE PORTION WITH THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATIONS OF HORMONES AND OTHER MILK INDUCING CHEMICALS.
Beef farmers found that because of dairy cows being burned out in as little as 3 years dairymen replace and sell old to meat plants.
Farmer with say 80 to 200 head by using milk inducers will see over $100,000 more dollars per year from those animals than without.

It is not bad enough we ingest growth hormones and antibiotics but to add chemical sweetners to the toxic mess e call milk is scary.

Anonymous said...

I just read the request and the documents in reference. This is not about ingredients labeling but rather about the claim that's made elsewhere on the packaging. Right now, unless nutritive sweeteners are added there needs to say somewhere else what sets the product apart. In the case of aspartame it would probably be "low calorie", which one could argue would lead more people to buy these products, especially if not aware of aspartame poisoning.

Let's get a few things straight here instead of creating mass panic. 1) No where does the petition say "without a label." They aren't going to dump aspartame in your regular milk without you knowing about it. 2) This is an optional sweetening ingredient for flavored milk like chocolate or strawberry milk, instead of using sugar. Personally I avoid asparatame like the plague, but if other people want to poison themselves with it, that's fine by me. Just please, activistpost, let's not poison people's minds with incorrect data.

This article is slightly misleading, in that the proposal wouldn't allow them to omit aspartame from the ingredients list - it would just allow them not to prominently label flavored milk & dairy products as "sugar free" or "reduced calorie", etc. All ingredients must be included in the ingredients list, so no need to worry that plain old milk currently has unlisted HFCS or other sweeteners.
The proposal would apply mainly to flavored milk & dairy products, so it would become a little harder to pick your poison - HFCS or aspartame - if you had to actually read the ingredients label. But we should all learn to do that anyway!

What about people with aspartame allergies? This just disgusts me!! We have such strict laws in my area about raw milk, its hard to locate a farm even willing to do share's to even buy raw milk.

Why put chemicals in the milk in the first place? I grew up on raw milk...no additives of any kind and it was great tasting and healthy..And if people who can not tolerate the chemicals and the milk is not labeled, it can make people sick or worse...Milk producers who hide ingredients..get ready for lawsuits

I'm allergic to aspartame. I guess it's time to ditch dairy! Bummer.

I hope they don't start putting neotame in organic milk. I wouldn't trust milk unless I can pet the cow.

I can't believe that this would actually happen. All other food must give the ingredients. http://useconomicoutlook2013.com/

Everybody, I understand all the concerns as my family is a large consumer of dairy products...............but using the "F" word shows ignorance and no one will take you seriously using that type of language. Your point will be made more effectively with intelligent language.

This is insane, and must be stopped. It's also concerning to note that they are using as justification for this request that the dairy industry is already adding sugar and HFC to milk without a label! I honestly did not know that, and it makes me very angry to think that I'm trying to do something healthy for my family by avoiding flavored milks, only to find out that the white milk I've been buying for years probably has added sugar! I won't buy another gallon of cow milk from the store, you can be sure of that!

show me one scientific study that proves that aspartame is bad for you. go on..... I'm waiting. Aspartame has never been scientifically proven to show this. There is absolutely NO proof that it's bad for you. It has been linked to things but has NEVER been the main cause. I'd like to see an actual informative scientific study that proves me wrong

How the hell is this shit even a proposal? Where is the transparency? Can big organizations stop for one second to think about the consumer?

In this case, the status quo is safest for consumers.

Acid Grin said...

No. If it has aspartame in it, it needs to be labelled thusly. Marketing needs to take a back seat behind health, or we'll be getting sick for the sake of pretty looking products.

Good ol' FDA. Letting drug companies bribe you into passing horribly unsafe medications for trivial ailments and apparently also deciding we don't need to know what the FUCK is in the food and drink we buy. Your entire organization is unquestionably absurd and useless, and don't even pretend you actually enforce or regulate anything; we all know you're easier to buy than a fucking candy bar. If you don't know the public's stance on this just by glancing at the comments you never will.

Fuck em where it hurts, their wallets. Only buy Organic milk like Horizon. It tastes better anyways.

The FDA's job is not to make consumption EASIER for me. The FDA's job is to ensure that i can be a properly informed consumer who can make my own decisions about how to feed myself and my family. This means proper labeling. I have a right to know what I am consuming. Do not coddle the public by assuming the inclusion of ingredients will just confuse people. The FDA was not charged with a mission to protect me from scratching my head and trying to pronounce "aspartame." Put it on the label and let me make informed purchases.

The public deserves to know what is in their food!! I am a Registered Dietitian and believe the food industry needs to take more responsibility in helping the public. Food claims are already misleading, but it doesn't make it better to NOT list ingredients. Ignorance is not bliss! It is a slap in the face to those who care and want to avoid chemicals, additives, ingredients, and GMOs of their choosing.

This is bullshit. The FDA's job is to ensure that i can be a properly informed consumer. I have a right to know what I am consuming. This means proper labeling. Please do not cave in to this as the FDA is known to do in the past. Label the fake "food" stuffs. I need to know.

STOP SCREWING WITH OUR FOOD SUPPLY! Isn't it bad enough we have to deal with GMOs, food colorings and every known carcinagin...now we have to deal with another one! Kids are already addicted to anything sweet....Parents need to step up and teach their kids about a healthful diet so they learn how to be healthy. The only reason for the food industry to cater to the sweettooth of our kids is for the money...they could care less about the health of our kids.

Why have a law requiring ingredients to be printed on the label if it's not being enforced? There should be no loopholes or exceptions. List every single thing. Stop stuffing your pockets at the risk of people's health. I don't drink anything that comes ready to drink for this reason. It's not just milk. You'd be surprised to know what's being added to many other things as well. Besides the fact that humans don't need to drink milk from cows or other animals, have you seen the price of a gallon of milk lately? Geez.

READING ALL THESE POSTS GIVES ME HOPE THAT THERE ARE STILL A FEW LEFT OUT THERE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN CHEMICALLY LOBOTOMIZED!
DID ALL OF YOU POST A COMMENT TO THE FDA? HERE'S MINE:
To the FDA:
It is my absolute belief that the policy makers in your department have literally sold the American Public out to private corporate interests that have no desire in making us safe from toxic additives.
Allowing artificial sweetener's in milk products without labeling would be a CRIMINAL and egregious sin against mankind!
I am sickened to the core to even have to write this and that this allowance is even being considered.
I guarantee you that I am among the millions who have seen study after independent study who knows exactly how damaging these products are. The jig is up and it's my hope that sooner than later the weight of evidence will take down your house of cards.
These corporate interests and you, the FDA, are KILLING untold, countless millions with the sickness these artificial sweetener's inflict.
What? Aren't we dying fast enough for you with all the toxic soft drinks you've allowed on the market?
FDA... WITH YOUR BLESSINGS you allow this killing machine to thrive.
Somewhere, somehow there has got to be someone decent left at the FDA? Someone who will stand up and fight for us?
Oh, wait... that's right... I hear those are the one's who get fired!
I am done writing polite letters asking regulatory branches of the government such as yours to "please consider blah, blah, blah" when I full know not one iota of what I have to say will be taken into consideration.
I AM SCREAMING THROUGH THIS COMPUTER!!!!
SOMEONE DOWN THERE AT THE FDA SAVE US!!!
GROW SOME YOU KNOW WHAT!!!!
STOP THIS INSANITY!!!!
IT IS YOUR JOB TO PROTECT - HOW DO YOU TAKE THE TAXPAYERS MONEY HOME EVERY WEEK IN YOUR PAYCHECK AND SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING YOUR BETRAYING AND KILLING INNOCENT CHILDREN!
IF IT WERE UP TO ME I'D EMPTY ALL THE POT-HEADS OUT OF THE PRISONS TO MAKE ROOM FOR ALL OF YOU!
Remember this - blood is on your hands you greedy, self-serving, slimy, soulless bastards!

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?????? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE??????

Problem around here is the big dairy has threatened any dairymen who sell off farm direct to individuals who want unpasturized. Those farmers live in fear, thinking they can't afford to loose their contracts. We can only hope enough dairymen will tell the big dairy to kiss off. Yet, there is the Amish dairyman who never sold to anyone but his Amish community. The government has done a job on him and his livelihood. Big money rules our lives. We are indentured servants. They want to keep us poisoned and dumbed down so they can continue to feed off our zombied carcasses. They want us to buy our water, buy our energy buy our food. All these things are free. They cannot make a profit if we live freely.

ananamy said...

The FDA is owned by big business. The Pharmaceutical companies own everyone in one way or another. The only cure for what ails us is a peaceful resistance. A revolution. When enough people "get it" and see that our government, and for that matter NO Government has any good intent for their people. They hopefully will resist with their only power, their pocketbooks. Stop buying from them. Stop supporting their greed. Stop making excuses why you NEED this piece of crap and that piece of crap. Consider carefully what you buy and from whom. As we support each other on a local level we can form tight communities. As they can attack individuals it will be much harder to attack whole communities. They make the laws but live without lawfulness. It is a crime to push their decisions upon the populace. Yet we sit by in fear of their wrath. and in fear we may not have what everyone else has. or that we may cause someone to look at us funny. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! you have been asleep far too long! Turn off the corporate owned media systems. Get away from their fear mongering! They want to keep you in survival mode so you never have the opportunity to live!!!

We need to be smart shoppers and diligent consumers at the market. Our Government along with big business continue to put profits in front of the safety of the consumer. GMO's, lack of its labeling, questionable approvals by FDA with products like High Fractose Corn Syrup and Aspartame is increasingly raising our awareness that we need to protect ourselves and no long count on anyone to protect us from what we consume.

I think the only reason why they're 'pushing' for this is because some of them have been doing it all along and they're about to be caught!

Thankfully I switched to almond milk(homemade. by me) a while back with a bit of flax added to it. Nutritious and far better for the human body than mucilaginous milk.

This is VERY misleading. And easily proven by the responses.

Scare articles like this one leave a hugely-important word out of their headlines. This is NOT about "sugar in milk" it is about sugar in FLAVORED milk, eg Nestle's Quick! ALL such products already have the added sugar and/or sweeteners listed in the ingredients label etc.

The battle is actually over whether "regular" chocolate milk needs no up-front label, while low-cal chocolate milk MUST (currently) be listed as "reduced calorie" in the product name! They are asking to eliminate the rule about "reduced calorie".

The interesting thing about this: regular sugar-added drinks are WAY more dangerous. High sugar foods like this are the direct cause of a huge increase in juvenile diabetes with incredibly awful health consequences. No scare tactics needed. Yet high-sugar foods require no cautionary labeling at all.

Here is what they are really trying to get away with...
Neotame has already been approved by the FDA to be added to foods WITHOUT being listed on the label, the amount added by weight is very small and since it is also a "Flavor Enhancer" (read MSG like excitotoxin) if they choose to list it, it can be included in "Flavorings". Neotame is Aspertame with another toxic chemical added to it.
Currently they cannot add any non-nutritive sweetener to milk and still call it milk. So, Neotame cannot be added to Milk only milk drinks or reduced calorie milk. However if this passes then it will be legal for non-nutritive sweeteners = Neotame to be added to milk and while aspartame will need to be listed, Neotame WILL NOT have to be listed on the label.
I just want the choice to ingest chemicals, not have them hidden by deceptive labeling laws and the FDA.

Milk is a cow food--not a human food. Now they want to make it even more artificial than it is. Aspartame should not be in food consumed by children--or anyone else for that matter.

Hopefully, Americans will boycott milk and milk products because of the big dairy's attempt to poison American children with aspartame. Perhaps terrorists have taken over the dairy associations.

Keep your children away from milk--and see how much healthier they become. Allergies and other problems will magically disappear.

We need to love our children enough to feed them real foods. Milk is not a real food anymore.

My goodness me!!!!!!I live in Canada and feel for my neighbours. I was the kind of person who never liked artificial of anything especially in my food as it always made me sick when I was a young girl and into my early twenties. I avoided MSG which was laden on a steak I had eaten for a girlfriends birthday in a fancy restaurant, could not make it for desert because I was sitting on the toilet with excruciating cramps in my abdomen, sweating hot and cold, instant runs, could not get off the toilet, vomited like crazy. That is was MSG does to me especially when it if found in Chinese food so I have to ask, usually here in Canada most places will post MSG free, but some still do not. When I was pregnant with my first child the doctor said to me, at no time do you ever, I mean ever consume any diet coke, any diet drinks, any diet gum laced with aspartame, back then there was what you called sacarane; do not know how to spell it, and he emphasized this as so crucial that it scared the daylight out of me. He said to me we as doctors still do not know the effect these artificial sweetners have on the unborn child and you are to read all labels when buying food, even crackers ect. I said to him, that I hated all that was artificial because my stomach could not take it anyways so I had not worries about it. I never drank coke, of carbonated beverages much in the first place and gum I always purchased the one with the sugar in it and he told me that a little sugar will not hurt in moderate amounts. Drink plenty of water and freshly pressed juices ect. If I consume an artificial drink with aspartame or have a piece of chewing gum laced with aspartame in it, you will find me a day later in the emergency room with a Urinary Tract Infection gone mad and if not taken care of soon enough it goes right to my kidneys. So, if your FDA thinks it safe, which I know and you know the adgenda here, heaven help your nation. The more sick people out there, less kidneys, more transplant, more medications to be sold, population elimination, the rich get richer with their investments into the drug companies the list goes on..............Do not drink Milk. Mild is for cows. Watch how a calf in its first year of life gains and grows and we feed this to our infants via formula. Breastfeed women of the world. Get back to nature where we all come from and are connected. Eat naturally as possible but that even is becoming impossible as the control of food production is out of our control. Back to natural farming ect. Chickens running free, Cows in the fields, pigs being pigs, ect. A blast from the past with a little edge of this future would be great.

I understand that this story might have been picked up from elsewhere but does gathering support for a cause always require creating a mass of morons? All but a few of the comments show that this article has convinced people that this change will allow aspartame without being in the ingredients label. That is false. The proposal is to removed required labels such as "low calorie" from the front. The ingredients label will be unaffected.

Everyone who drinks milk, needs to switch to POWDERED milk. My family has been drinking powdered milk for the last 9 years since our children were toddlers.

The only thing added to our powdered milk According to whats written on the outside packaging - are vitamins A & D.

Makes me wonder if vegans have taken over Big Dairy and are attempting to poison the dairy supply with aspartame to turn people away from milk and towards almond milk and soymilk which will soon have aspartame added to them as well. And then they'll turn around and call you a conspiracy theorist or a Big Dairy shill if you criticize aspartame being added to almond milk and soy milk.

It's all BS. They only wanted to not be required to put diet or light on the front label. This sounded fishy and I learned that I was right after I read the OFFICIAL REQUEST, and not some second hand rendition of if put out by some conspiracy nutters.
