With he availability of Stevia, and my inclination as someone who directly experienced Aspartame's neurotoxicity, I'm extremely skeptical of even the need for Advantame. My name suggestion would be SweatorSweet?

FDA Approves New Sugar Substitute
By Kristin J. Kelley
The artificial sweetener advantame has been approved for use as an all-purpose sweetener, making it the sixth sugar substitute to get the nod from the FDA.
Advantame, which was deemed safe from possible toxic effects in some 35 animal and human studies, does not raise blood sugar levels and adds few calories to food. Like aspartame, it should be avoided by people who can't metabolize phenylalanine, one of the sweetener's ingredients.
The product has no brand name yet.

Maybe because wannabe biochemists are always coming up with their make-believe stories about sugar substitutes, to the delight of the sugar industry.
How about a naming contest. I will kick it off with Sweet Sixth. Why was another sugar substitute sought? Perhaps it was discovered by accident?
