The usage of Hermesetas
Everyone who finds it important to have a healthy lifestyle, eat less calories and look after their teeth. Since Hermesetas is available as tablets and in granular and liquid form, it can be used in all types of food and drink.
Why is it so safe to use Hermesetas?
Sweeteners are classified as food additives and thus belong to a product group that is strictly controlled by international (JECFA, SCF, CODEX) and national authorities.
These bodies impose very strict conditions on the safety and conditions of use of the product itself, its packaging and labeling.
In the UK all sweeteners are subject to the 'Sweeteners in Food Regulations 1995'.
The ADI ('acceptable daily intake')
The ADI-level is set to determine the acceptable daily dietary intake of sweeteners that may be consumed without any appreciated risk. The acceptable daily intake applies to the daily intake for your whole life and is a recommendation for long term consumption. Exceeding the ADI-level of intake for a short period therefore would be of no risk.
Consumption studies have shown that the average daily intake of any sweetener is considerably below the relevant ADI level.
Sweeteners during pregnancy
The ADI also applies to expectant mothers. These daily amounts are usually far in excess of requirements, but should they be exceeded for a short period, the safety factor of 100 means it is still perfectly safe.
Sweeteners for children
Sweeteners are generally used for weight control and in slimming diets. Very young children need high-energy, well balanced nutrition. So in most cases, sweeteners are not necessary and therefore not recommended for children up to the age of 3. But should a child of this age suffer from diabetes or be overweight, it is quite safe to use sweeteners under medical supervision if the correct dosage is calculated based on the child's body weight.
With older children, it is simply a matter of making allowance for the fact that they weigh less than adults (calculating the ADI). Children should not drink carbonated drinks sweetened with sugar or even 'light' or 'diet' drinks by the gallon. When they are very thirsty, water is a much more sensible option.
