Sweeteners to avoid
When it comes to artificial sweeteners, the real no during pregnancy are saccharin and cyclamate sweeteners.
Aspartame is not recommended due to studies on rats linking it to birth defects. In human studies, however, research has failed to prove it’s dangerous.

It’s best to stick as much as possible to sweeteners that have a lower glycaemic load or are lower in calories. Most professionals also advise using a variety of sweeteners so no one type of sweetener is consumed in excess.
It’s also always favorable to choose sweeteners that are as close to nature as possible, with artificial sweeteners used minimally. Sweeteners are everywhere, including cold drinks, chewing gums, baked goods, yogurts, sweets, and chocolates − so read food labels and be sure of what you’re consuming. Naturally occurring sugars in fruits can also be used to sweeten foods. For example, use dates, berries, apples or apricots instead of added sugars.
