EDIT: please do not take this message as a health consultation! I understand that people in certain situations can not cope with diet soda, as well as others! When you were doing this post, it was largely a reflexive message, trying to justify my love for diet soda. Once again, I do not encourage or refuse to consume dietary soda.
As someone who loves soda diet and drinks it often, I always had to feel bad about soda diet. What is the care of diet soda? Well, basically, their artificial sweeteners. By joining this subreddit, I was more convinced that I didn’t do anything wrong.
Therefore, today I am here to dispel the myth that we are taking the unhealthy limit of dietary soda in terms of artificial sweeteners.
First, let's define what diet soda is. This is a soft drink that uses artificial sweeteners. In particular, aspartame and acesuflame K.
I will discuss specifically about diet coke, zero coke, the pepsi diet and the pepsi kefir diet. The amount found in these drinks can be found at this link below. This is the source of a registered nutritionist.
This is the main website for this document.
According to a nutritionist, 8 ounces of a Coke diet contains 125 mg of aspartame. 8 ounces of coke zero contains 58 mg of aspartame and 31 mg of acesuflame K. 8 ounces of the pepsi / caffine free diet pepsi contains 118 mg of aspartame.
For convenience, each of the soda is usually 12 ounces or 355 ml.
Conversion is 1 liter = 33.814 ounces of liquid in the United States.
For the sake of convenience, I will also refer to the amount you can drink in liters.
1 liter of Coca-Cola diet contains 528.34 mg of aspartame.
1 liter of zero coke contains 245.15 mg of aspartame and 131.03 mg of Acesulfame K.
1 liter of the pepsi diet contains 498.76 mg aspartame.
This is a daily intake of aspartame and acesulfame.
Acceptable daily intake of aspartame: 40 mg per kg body weight
Acceptable daily intake of Acesulfame K: 9 mg per kg body weight
So, assuming you are 40 kilograms / 88 pounds, your daily limit is as follows.
1600 mg of aspartame and 360 mg of acesulfate.
As a person with a dignity of 88 pounds / 40 kg, you have an acceptable daily intake of 3.02 liters of Coca-Cola diet.
As a person with a dignity of 88 pounds / 40 kg, you have an acceptable daily intake of 2.75 liters of Coca-Cola Zero
As a person consisting of 88 pounds / 40 kg, you have an acceptable daily intake of 3.2 liters of pepsi diet.
The good news is that most people do not even have this light. Thus, the limit is more likely to be above 4 liters for many people.
I would like to say that I do not advocate the use of 3 liters of dietary soda per day, but even if you drink 2 to 3 cans every day, it is insignificant in terms of the effects of artificial sweeteners.
Also: drink it through a straw.
