The drivers, trends and dietary impacts of non-nutritive sweeteners in the food supply: a Narrativereview./Nutrition Research Reviews

Goal

Provide an overview of current non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS) food supply and consumption patterns, assess added sugar-reduction policies and their impacts on NNS, and determine impact of NNS on food choice, energy intake and diet quality.

Results

NNS are widely available in a variety of products, though most commonly in carbonated beverages, dairy products, confectionery, table-top sweeteners and fruit drinks. However, the Longitudinaltrends of different product categories, and differences between geographies and economy-income levels, require further study. Few studies have examined NNS consumption trends globally, though an increase in NNS consumption in bev- erages has been observed in some regions. Research examining how the increased availability of low-sugar, NNS-containing products affects global dietary patterns is limited, particularly in terms of their potential substitution effects.
