The history of LCS

Low calorie sweeteners are among the most thoroughly tested food ingredients in the world, with a strong body of scientific evidence and extensive research supporting their safe use in foods, beverages, and as table top sweeteners.

At an international level, the responsibility of evaluating the safety of all food additives, including low calorie sweeteners, rests with the Joint Expert Scientific Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) of the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization. JECFA serves as an independent scientific committee which performs safety assessments and provides advice to FAO and WHO and the member countries of both organizations.
