Does anyone know if Aspartame is gluten? I have been glutened and can't figure out what it is. I'm getting very frustrated!!!!! I can not find out for sure. I found one list where it was posted as a gluten, but when I do research I'm not coming up with any answers..Any input would be greatly appreciated... :(

It's gluten free. However, for me, it gives me stomach pain and bloating. I am fine with sucralose but it's harder to find diet soda without the aspartame.

Yes, we know artificial sweeteners aren't good for us.

My chiropractor told me that aspartame can also cause generalized muscle pain. As I have constant chronic pain, I have avoided it since that day.

Aspartame also bothers me...gives me diarrhea....I had no idea what was causing my problem until my husband mentioned not to buy a certain product because it gave him D....it contained aspertame.

Aspartame and MSG give me horrible headaches, stomach upset, etc. I also have this problem with sugar/high fructose corn syrup.

With MSG, I get this really nasty burning in my throat and I have this general feeling of being "disconnected" from the world around me.

Count me in for aspartame headaches! Because I don't have trouble with sugar, I'd rather have a bit of sugar than aspartame or any other artificial sweetener.

I discovered my allergy to artificial sweeteners about 6 or 7 years ago. The only one I can tolerate is S&L - and when people say "the pink stuff" - nope - most of the knockoff pink packets effect me too. Just S&L for me in my morning Latte. I can't tell you how often Starbucks misses that - at $4 for a cup of coffee it would seem a no-brainer that a person who speaks clearly and with emphasis on I MUST HAVE SWEET AND LOW BECAUSE I'M ALLERGIC TO ALL OTHERS would be handled correctly.

They effect me with headaches, sore throat, and sinus clog. If I have a full diet soda today, tomorrow and the next day I'll have those symptoms.
