Study By McNeil Nutrionals Finds Sucralose Not Carcinogenic

October 2, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A study funded by the creator of sucralose, McNeil Nutrionals, has found that the artificial sweetener does not cause cancer. The British researchers said earlier studies found a link between sucralose and cancer only after administering extremely high amounts unlikely to be reflective of everyday use. The acceptable daily intake (ADI) for sucralose established by the World Health Organization is a maximum of 15 mg per kilogram of body weight a day (or about 1.5 grams a day for someone weighing 104 kg). In the reviewed studies, exposure levels several orders of magnitude – hundreds to thousands of times – greater than the ADI did not cause cancer.
