Lots of chatter going on the last few days regarding aspartame in milk. Here are a few links to help you find out the truth about this issue.

The Aspartame in Milk Controversy: Straight From the Farmer’s Mouth.
From International Dairy Foods Association.
As required by the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) food labeling regulations, all food products that include non-nutritive sweeteners as an ingredient must be clearly labeled and include the name of the sweetener on the package’s ingredient statement.
The FDA petition would not change any existing requirements that aspartame, sucralose or any other non-nutritive sweetener be included in the list of ingredients if it is present.
