Courts Protect Aspartame From Nasty Naming

A judge in Britain has ruled that Asda, a UK grocery company, cannot legally describe the artificial sweetener aspartame as “nasty.”

This decision is a reversal of a previous ruling that “nasty” has only a vague meeting and does not constitute “malicious falsehood.”

According to Food Politics:

“A spokeswoman for the maker of aspartame, Ajinomoto, said:Asda can no longer deny that describing aspartame as a ‘nasty’ denigrates a safe and beneficial food ingredient.’”

In case you didn’t know, by the way, there have been more reports to the FDA for aspartame reactions than for all other food additives combined.
