Just like its five previously approved counterparts, advantame is said by the FDA to be low-calorie and doesn't generally raise blood sugar.

The FDA gave the green light to the new artificial sweetener on Monday.

It is a white crystalline that dissolves in water, and does not break down under heat.

Advantame is 20,000 times sweeter than regular table sugar, gram per gram.

Looks like it is just another spin on aspartame.  I'll pass.
