As some of you may know, we have recently launched our newest and most flavorful Neocate Junior product, Neocate Junior with Prebiotics, Vanilla. One concern we have heard from some families is the use of in products. Some families have asked if our new Neocate Junior with Prebiotics, Vanilla product has any Aspartame. The answer to that is ‘no!’ Families will then inform us that another Vanilla flavored elemental formula on the market actually uses three different types of artificial sweeteners in its formula!
Neocate Junior with Prebiotics, Vanilla only uses one type of artificial sweetener, Sucralose (Splenda®), as well as natural table sugar. There are a few sweeteners on the market in the US and have been approved by the . Here is a list of some of those sweeteners:
· Aspartame -
· Acesulfame Potassium –
· Sucralose -
· Saccharin –
We will turn our focus to Sucralose, which, based on the Center for Science in the Public Interest is the safest of all the sweeteners listed above. Sucralose passed all safety tests in animal studies and has the least amount of reports of intolerances.
You may also note that in Neocate Junior with Prebiotics, Vanilla, Sucralose is toward the end of the ingredients list meaning very little is used in the product.
In developing the Neocate Junior with Prebiotics, Vanilla, was conscious not to pack it full of artificial sweeteners. The majority of the sweetening we used comes from natural table sugar, which you can see in the ingredient list towards the top.
Have you tried Neocate Junior with Prebiotics, Vanilla yet? How did you like the taste? We always enjoy hearing!
