Non-nutritive sweeteners were introduced in the early 1900’s and were used in many different ways with the most notable being a sugar substitute. While nutritive and non-nutritive sweeteners share similar properties, each hold various impacts on the human body. In the first chapter, I will be using primary sources to complete the literature review of my thesis that will explain the similarities and differences in these sweeteners. In the second and third chapters, I will be both conducting and explaining my experimental data found through my scientific research to support my hypothesis. In my scientific research, I will determine the difference between iced coffee and Greek yogurt sweetened with sugar and those made with Splenda. This thesis will conclude by connecting the significance of diet on health, as this thesis is a combination of both my passion for the sciences as well as an eagerness to help my future patients in the dental field.
