This was on Teresa' Tapp's newsletter today. I think it is REALLY important information. Beware!!!
"Another of Monsanto's chemical catastrophes is hitting the shelves now... and you won't even know it's in your food. Neotame, which is aspartame (ie. Equal and Nutrasweet) on steroids, is 3,000 times sweeter than regular sugar and 30 times sweeter than aspartame. It is being used in commercially processed foods but it is not required to be listed on the label of organic processed products either because it falls below the 3% limit needed to be listed. Monsanto developed Neotame because their patent on aspartame was running out. For most people, Neotame produces instant nausea even in small amounts! People often ask me why aspartame is so bad; when our bodies break down these chemical sweeteners, a byproduct is formaldehyde. Formaldehyde even in small amounts is highly toxic to our bodies! I think we've all become dedicated label readers but this new move to ruin our food supply is beyond believable. If you find that you experience effects from aspartame or suspect that Neotame might be silently making you ill, you can file a report with the US Food and Drug Administration at FDA Safety Reports. Grrrrrr!"
