ADI

Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) is the amount of aspartame in foods or drinks that can be consumed on a daily basis without any health risk.

ADIs are expressed in milligrams (of aspartame) per kilograms of body weight per day. For example, if your body weight is 80 kg, and the ADI of aspartame is 40mg/kg, this means that your ADI for aspartame can be up to a maximum of 3200 mg (80 kg x 40 mg).
