Fitness Facts for the nerd in all of us!  Today’s food additive is Acesulfame Potassium (Aceslfame-K). Try saying that fast more than twice! Whee… I burned 10 calories just typing it.

This additive is a calorie-free artificial sweetener is 200 times sweeter than sugar and is found in more that 5,000 food/products worldwide including diet soft drinks and no-sugar ice-cream. Although the FDA claims it’s safe it has been linked to thyroid issues and breast tumors. Yikes!
