Abstract

The Calorie Control Council, established in 1966, is an international association representing the low-calorie and diet food and beverage industry. The Council seeks to provide an effective channel of communication among its members, the public, and government officials, and to assure that scientific, medical, and other pertinent research and information is developed and made available to all interested parties. The Council has sponsored numerous studies on low-calorie sweeteners, foods, and beverages. It supports the availability of aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, and acesulfame K and the approvals of alitame and cyclamate. The Council also supports the continued availability of current fat substitutes and caloric dietary sweeteners. The approval of additional safe low-caloric sweeteners, fat substitutes, and other dietary ingredients is encouraged.

Publications

The Council publishes pamphlets on saccharin, aspartame, acesulfame K, sucralose, xylitol, lactitol, isomalt, hydrogenated starch hydrolysates, erythritol, mannitol, maltitol, sorbitol, fat replacers, and sensible dieting. Serial publication: Calorie Control Commentary (newsletter), biannually.
