IME if something says "no artificial colours or preservatives" it probably does have artificial sweeteners (since if it didn't it would be loudly trumpeting that fact too. Particularly if it says "no added sugar" as adding artificial sweeteners is ofen how they avoid adding sugar.
Also neee to watch out for fat content (especially trans fats) and salt levels (bear in mind recommende limits and that sometimes figures are counted as grams of salt and sometimes as grams of sodium).
Even if something contains no added nasties at all it doesn't mean that consuming huge amounts of it is good for you.
I agree GPT&L - but my definition suggests that stuff that is made naturally & has been eaten for thousands of years has a slight chance of being safe to eat......so I choose Butter & olive Oil not marg, sugar not artificial sweetners and chocolate not celery
grouchyoscar - I can so understand where you are coming from
I have ME/CFS which is nothing like MS I know - but it brings on my symptoms very quickly
You sound like me - sat on the floor with the contents of the bin around me trying to work out what the hell it was hiding in this time
With fizzy drinks it is a nightmare - I used to drink oringina while I was out (pubs etc) then for ages it made me ill - couldn't work out why for ages then it turns out they changed the recipe.......then blow me they changed it back a few yrs later???
