Putting Profit Before Children. Milk.

Really? Aspartame.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition requesting that the Agency amend the standard of identity for milk and 17 other dairy products to provide for the use of any safe and suitable sweetener as an optional ingredient. FDA is issuing this notice to request comments, data, and information about the issues presented in the petition.

“Accordingly, the petitioners state that milk flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners should be labeled as milk without further claims so that consumers can “more easily identify its overall nutritional value.”

  1. I can’t find one article that says one way or the other. It seems that follow up articles don’t exist. I’ll spend more time looking to this. As cynical as I am I’ll say that the right hands were buttered and their petition was agreed upon.
