    Sugar-free certs definitely had aspartame.

    I started doing a test of my reaction to things with different artificial sweeteners - the products with aspartame were the culprit.

    Gums like Orbit (a newer gum product), Trident, breath mints like Breathsavers - these all had/have aspartame (at least had them when I was a consumer of such).

    Crystal Lite was another culprit - I received quantities of it from a relative who at the time worked for the food broker that handled the drink mix. I tried mixing a pitcher and after the second glass on a hot summer day, had the familiar stomach cramping and colon spasms that signaled an IBS onset.

    There were other things I tracked which either no longer exist or that I habitually avoid. I do stay away from sorbitol, and other modified sugars as a rule.

    The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.
