Substituting other sweeteners for added sugars in beverages and other foods could have beneficial effects. Reseachers in the U.S. found that artificial sweeteners can help people lose excess body weight.

Aspartame, acesulfame-K, neotame, saccharin, sucralose and plant-derived stevia can also help diabetics control their blood sugar.

"While they are not magic bullets, smart use of non-nutritive sweeteners could help you reduce added sugars in your diet, therefore lowering the number of calories you eat," Christopher Gardner, associate professor of medicine says.
