And I am almost sure that this:

""Furthermore, aspartame, one of the main artificial sweeteners used today, causes an increase in glycaemia and consequently a rise in the insulin level in comparison to that produced by sucrose.""

is flat out wrong.

It seems easy enough to test: take blood sample, drink aspartame in water, take blood sample again... Then test the two blood samples for insulin level.

Has this really never been done, for all the different sweeteners? By now this should be a case-closed nonissue instead of a decades-running urban myth.
