Does saccharin cause weight gain?
IT MAY SUGGESTS A NEW STUDY. A group of 465 people were interviewed twice 4 years apart. Those in the top one-third for saccharin consumption, consuming more than 28 grams per day, gained the most weight - on average 3.1 lbs. This does not prove the saccharin causes weight gain. It may be simply that people who are most likely to gain weight also consume the most saccharin-sweetened foods. It would be interesting to see a long-term study to determine if saccharin is as beneficial as NutraSweet for weight loss and weight maintenance.
