Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners-The Bitter Truth

Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners: The Bitter Truth

There’s so much to unpack when sugar and artificial sweeteners are being talked about. Over the years, this sweet component has been a part of an unimaginable volume of food items, more than one could ever think of.

Thinking about it, why does it have to be re-named if nothing is actually wrong with it? Clearly, most consumers are lured by their taste more than their effect on one’s health.
