Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) for Low- and No-Calorie Sweeteners

In this webinar Low- and no-calorie sweeteners (LNCSs) Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) updates on safety and efficacy are reviewed, and proper interpretation is addressed. LNCS is a key tool for reduction of added sugars intake – which can be critical for individuals that have a health condition (e.g., diabetes) requiring attention to dietary carbohydrate. This webinar helps clinicians to better understand what is meant by an ADI and to address patient and consumer concerns about LNCSs and their value as dietary management tools.
