ASPARTAME - genetically modified bacteria

In 1999, "The Independent" published an article entitled "the most widely used sweetener in the world is produced by genetically modified bacteria," which revealed that Monsanto used deliberately adding aspartame in soft drinks in the United States - and that aspartame is produced from genetically modified bacteria.

This report, which remains one of the oldest information on aspartame appeared in a mainstream publication, went unheeded on appearance - perhaps because the implications of this information has been underestimated over time and thus the information forgotten.

Since 1999, the world became a little more attention to Monsanto and aspartame, but ignorance still abounds regarding its origin. While more and more people are discovering the destructive effects of aspartame on our health, they really know what is the process of technological?

Fortunately, a document from 1981, the production of aspartame, hidden drawers with patent offices, is now available online for everyone to see - and confirm all that Monsanto was pleased to communicate 1999 before their spectacular development to claim that greater caution.

The patent, entitled aspartame production is accredited to Bahl, Rose, and White, summarizes the process as follows:
"Aspartame artificial sweetener, a dipeptide ester of formula a N-methyl-Aspartyl is produced using a microorganism cloned [???]. A DNA encoding a stable peptide great length, consisting of an amino acid sequence which is multiplied (aspartyl phenyl), is inserted into a cloning vehicle, which, in turn, is introduced into a suitable host organism. The host organism is cultured in a culture medium and large peptide comprising the amino acid sequence, is harvested therefrom. Free carboxyl group of the peptide is then hydrolyzed resulting benzyl alcohol and benzyl phenyl Aspartyl dipeptide. This dipeptide is methylated and then debenzylated by known as aspartame .."

The scientific jargon hides (perhaps deliberately) a really exciting process:
1. "Microorganisms cloned" (which patent shows them as a form of genetically modified Escherichia coli) are grown in tanks whose environments are tailored to help them multiply.
2. Cultures of E. coli proteins well-nourished filter segment containing the amino acid phenylalanine, aspartame needed to obtain aspartame.
3. Proteins that contain these segments are "collected" (e.g. laboratory workers collect the slurry the bacteria).
4.) Faeces are then treated. It includes a process of methylation (addition of an excess of toxic alcohol, methanol, to protect the dipeptide).

While common sense indicates that this abomination has no place in close proximity to people, the inventors made no secret of their belief that aspartame is a safe and nutritious sweetener:
"Aspartame is not only more sweet than sucrose, but it is preferable that food and sucrose. While sucrose can provide just a little more energy body, aspartame is composed of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins in the body, and like other proteins, digested by digestive enzymes in the stomach to its constituent amino acids, thus giving nutritional value. [...] For these reasons, aspartame promises in the future to replace sugar with sweeteners. "
So here we have it: an official document not only reveals the shocking truth behind the production of aspartame, but also admits that it was deliberately intended as a substitute for mass consumption of sucrose. Therefore, the next time someone claims that your apprehension about this sweetener is unfounded, sent him to study this document - for the truth behind aspartame is now in sight.
