Artificial Sweeteners

Are sugar substitutes safe for pregnant women?

A Answers (1)

  • All of the artificial sweeteners (sugar substitutes) approved for use in the United States by the FDA except saccharin are safe in limited amounts during pregnancy. Saccharin, which in not commonly used, should NOT be used during pregnancy. Limiting sodas, both “diet” and regular, during pregnancy is a good idea.
