Safe, But...

Watch out for Saccharin and Cyclamate!

According to the American Pregnancy Association, the FDA considers the following artificial sweeteners safe to ingest in moderation during pregnancy: Rebaudioside A (Stevia), Acesulfame Potassium (Sunett), Sucralose (Splenda) and Aspartame (Equal or NutraSweet). However, Aspartame (Equal or NutraSweet) should not be ingested by pregnant women with PKU (a rare metabolic disorder), rare liver disease, or by pregnant women who have high levels of phenylalanine in their blood. The American Pregnancy Association advises to avoid artificial sweeteners containing saccharin (Sweet'N Low) and cyclamate.
