Abstract

With consistent high rates of consumption of low-calorie sweeteners (LCS) among the US adult population, further research is needed to better understand the metabolic effects of prolonged LCS consumption. By studying a healthy population under controlled conditions, we found LCS exposure to affect 1117 genes, the majority of which were involved in immune and inflammatory pathways. A trend toward increasing circulating levels of IL-6 was also observed (p=0.05). These data will serve as the basis for testing clinically relevant metabolic effects of prolonged LCS exposure in a randomized trial with a larger cohort and longer duration.
