Is diet soda bad for you?

No. People around the world drink our diet sodas every day. They are a refreshing option for people who want to enjoy the sparkling taste of soda, but with fewer or no calories. That's why the safety of our ingredients and beverages is really important to us. This includes the sugar substitutes, like aspartame and sucralose, we use in our diet sodas. These are some of the most thoroughly researched ingredients in the world. In fact, science and health professional organizations have affirmed that sugar substitutes, like aspartame, are safe. So have food safety authorities, like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
