As one of the representatives of synthetic sweeteners, aspartame has been widely used in many beverages, snacks and other fields

Such as sugar-free Coca-Cola, diet Pepsi and so on. At present, Coca-Cola is testing a new version of Diet Coke in Minnesota that uses monk fruit extract and stevia instead of the aspartame.
