    The FDA acceptable daily intake of advantame for humans is 32.8 mg per kg of bodyweight (mg/kg bw), while according to EFSA it is 5 mg per kg of bodyweight (mg/kg bw).

    Estimated possible daily intakes from foods are well below these levels. NOAEL for humans is 500 mg/kg bw in EU. Ingested advantame can form phenylalanine, but normal use of advantame is not significant to those with phenylketonuria. It also has no adverse effects in type 2 diabetics. It is not considered to be carcinogenic or mutagenic.

    The Center for Science in the Public Interest ranks advantame as safe and as generally recognized as safe.
