We contacted our technical contact with regards to your question about aspartame. Here is what he had to say:
There is lot of literature about the bad effect of Aspartame on humans. It is reported that the methane release in stomach which is a poison but it is Halal.
Although methane is known as wood alcohol but it will not cause intoxication. I do not personally drink diet Coke or Pepsi because I hate its taste. As for Aspartame’s Halal status, it is a Halal ingredient. It is a personal decision to drink diet soft drink or not.” (Web posted 04.11.04 @ 1.39 am EDT)
