Are artificial sweeteners used in your products safe for me?

Artificial sweeteners, sucralose (955) and acesulphame K (950) are used in our products where we aim to achieve lower sugar content or when we need to achieve a certain taste characteristic, particularly as protein does not have a very acceptable taste.

Both sucralose and acesulphame K are deemed safe for use in the food industry by reputable international and national health/food safety organisations including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).

Across our Balance range, the following artificial sweeteners are used:
