BackgroundThe major metabolic complications of obesity and type 2 diabetes may be prevented and managed with dietary modification. The use of sweeteners that provide little or no calories may help to achieve this objective.MethodsWe did a systematic review and network meta-analysis of the comparative effectiveness of sweetener additives using Bayesian techniques. MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL and CAB Global were searched to January 2011. Randomized trials comparing sweeteners in obese, diabetic, and… 
Acute glycemic and insulinemic effects of low-energy sweeteners: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
TLDR
Ingestion of LES, administered alone or in combination with a nutrient-containing preload, has no acute effects on the mean change in postprandial glycemic or insulinemic responses compared with a control intervention.
The impact of stevioside supplementation on glycemic control and lipid profile in patients with type 2 diabetes: a controlled clinical trial
TLDR
It is found that stevioside supplementation for diabetic patients’ increased the total caloric intake and decreased BMI, waist circumference, waist–hip ratio, and fat mass index, in the obese group, and improved cardiometabolic risk in diabetic patients.
Artificial sweeteners: a place in the field of functional foods? Focus on obesity and related metabolic disorders
TLDR
Artificial sweeteners, especially in beverages, can be a useful aid to maintain reduced energy intake and body weight and decrease risk of type-2 diabetes and CVD compared with sugars, however, confirmative long-term intervention trials are still needed.
Association between intake of non-sugar sweeteners and health outcomes: systematic review and meta-analyses of randomised and non-randomised controlled trials and observational studies
TLDR
Most health outcomes did not seem to have differences between the NSS exposed and unexposed groups, and future studies should assess the effects of NSSs with an appropriate intervention duration.
Review of Recommendations for the Use of Caloric Sweeteners by Adults and Children
TLDR
Although there is interest in identifying the efficacy of non-caloric sweeteners in preventing obesity and its complications, there is not sufficient evidence because of significant heterogeneity between the different studies and the lack of evidence in children.
Health outcomes of non-nutritive sweeteners: analysis of the research landscape
TLDR
This scoping review identifies the needs for future research to address the numerous evidence gaps related to health effects of NNSs use and specifies the research questions and areas where a systematic review with meta-analyses is required for the proper evaluation of health outcomes associated to regular N NSs consumption.
Association of Consumption of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages or Artificially Sweetened Beverages with Mortality: A Systematic Review and Dose-Response Meta-Analysis of Prospective Cohort Studies.
TLDR
Higher SSB and ASB intakes were associated with higher risks of all-cause mortality and CVD mortality, and the quality of evidence on other associations was low to moderate.
A rational review on the effects of sweeteners and sweetness enhancers on appetite, food reward and metabolic/adiposity outcomes in adults.
TLDR
The available data suggests that NCS can be used to facilitate a reduction in dietary energy content without significant negative effects on food intake behaviour or body metabolism, which would support their potential role in the prevention of obesity as a complementary strategy to other weight management approaches.
Non-nutritive Sweeteners and Their Associations with Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
It is imperative to understand the NNS efficacy and the relationship between NNS and metabolic diseases, as it is suggested that NNS may actually contribute to the development or worsening of metabolic diseases.

Heterogeneous Effects of Fructose on Blood Lipids in Individuals With Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
Pooled analyses demonstrated conditional triglyceride-raising and total cholesterol–lowering effects of isocaloric fructose exchange for carbohydrate in type 2 diabetes, and large-scale future trials need to address the heterogeneity in the data.
Acute effects of low insulinemic sweeteners on postprandial insulin and glucose concentrations in obese men
TLDR
Conclusions Trehalose, alone or in combination with fructose, elicited lower glycemic and insulinemic responses in obese men as compared with glucose alone, and may have advantages in the development of food products.
Frozen Desserts and Glycemic Response in Well-Controlled NIDDM Patients
TLDR
The TFD might have been expected to produce more satisfactory postprandial blood glucose levels than IC, which contains sucrose, yet a higher glycemic response was elicited, related to the substantial amount of total glucose in this “fructose” dessert.
Reduction in the incidence of type 2 diabetes with lifestyle intervention or metformin.
TLDR
Lifestyle changes and treatment with metformin both reduced the incidence of diabetes in persons at high risk and the lifestyle intervention was more effective than meetformin.
Metabolic Response to Oral Challenge of Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate Versus Glucose In Diabetes
TLDR
HSH as a single ingredient appears to be a suitable product for consumption by individuals with diabetes mellitus and any diminished glycemia is secondary to altered carbohydrate absorption.
Effects of dietary fructose on plasma lipids in healthy subjects.
TLDR
Dietary fructose was associated with increased fasting and postprandial plasma triacylglycerol concentrations in men and Glucose may be a suitable replacement sugar.
Palatinose-blended sugar compared with sucrose: different effects on insulin sensitivity after 12 weeks supplementation in sedentary adults
TLDR
Palatinose intake possibly improves insulin sensitivity when compared with sucrose intake, and may also reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome in sedentary non-obese Japanese adults.
Consumption of fructooligosaccharides does not favorably affect blood glucose and serum lipid concentrations in patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
It is concluded that 20 d of dietary supplementation with fructooligosaccharides had no major effect on blood glucose, serum lipids, or serum acetate in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Glycemic, hormone, and appetite responses to monosaccharide ingestion in patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
It is confirmed that oral fructose ingestion produces a lower postprandial blood glucose response than equienergetic glucose and demonstrated that fructose produces greater increases in plasma insulin concentration in type 2 diabetics than nondiabetics, not apparently due to greater plasma incretin concentrations.
Mechanisms for the acute effect of fructose on postprandial lipemia.
TLDR
The lower insulin excursion after fructose may result in less activation of adipose tissue lipoprotein lipase, which led to impaired triacylglycerol clearance.
