Reducing Calories through Low Calorie Sweeteners Improves Quality of Diet

Results from a research study of more than 1,000 adults, published in the Journal of Food Science, found that participants who incorporated reduced-calorie products consumed more vitamins and minerals such as calcium, fiber, iron in their diets.  According to lead researcher Dr. Madeleine Sigman-Grant, Ph.D., R.D., with the University of Nevada, “Those using products containing low-calorie sweeteners were more aware of the nutrients they were eating and were more likely to eat leafy-green vegetables, fruit and yogurt.” Thus, the researchers found while participants were eating fewer calories overall, they were also eating more healthfully.
