Does aspartame cause allergic reactions?

A number of studies have shown that there is no scientifically demonstrated link between true allergies and aspartame. Even among those who believed they experienced allergic-type reactions to aspartame, researchers have not been able to duplicate adverse reactions in carefully controlled studies. In fact, one study of aspartame and allergic responses found that aspartame was no more likely than a placebo to cause adverse reactions.
