Pretty much. I don't eat those food. No coke, pepsi, gums, candy, juice bottles, packaged yogurt, etc for me. We make juice and dhahi at home.

... and homemade coke too. :D


Apparently, milk companies started a petition because they want to add such things to milk and not label them as "low calorie", and they want FDA to allow that.

Therefore, while the milk standard of identity in § 131.110 only
provides for the use of “nutritive sweetener” in an optional
characterizing flavor, milk may contain a characterizing flavor that is
sweetened with a non-nutritive sweetener if the food's label bears a
nutrient content claim (e.g., “reduced calorie”) and the non-nutritive
sweetener is used to add sweetness to the product so that it is not
inferior in its sweetness property compared to its standardized
counterpart. However, IDFA and NMPF argue that nutrient content claims
such as “reduced calorie” are not attractive to children, and maintain
that consumers can more easily identify the overall nutritional value of
milk products that are flavored with non-nutritive sweeteners if the
labels do not include such claims.
