    if it were economical and easy to do, it would have been done already. But it certainly would be awesome.

    Lots of things haven't been done already, just because nobody put forth the necessary research to initiate said doings.

    If people are already willing to kill themselves slowly with hordes of artificial sweeteners, and the rest don't mind stuffing their fat faces with sugar, I could see why there might be a lack of initiative. That said, a natural, protein sweetener seems highly marketable.

    You really think that trillion dollar corporations like Coca-Cola haven't hired people to think of these things?

    Drinks that contain aspartame list only some protein in their macros (like 0.1 g usually) as it's made by 2 amino acids.

    wouldn't that require that the proteins be broken down though anyway, and therefore not realy complete proteins?


    I'm not a chemist though, so i wouldn't have any clue.

    at 800x sweetness, you'd be getting milligrams of protein with a meal rather than the grams your looking for.

    Aspertame isn't a natural sweetener, and it's carcinogenic.

    I don't think I'd suddenly decide to use all my sweetened foods as my primary protein intake, but Natural > Artificial and Protein > Shitty carbs.

    exactly, you wouldn't be taking in enough additional protein to matter so just use a normal sugar-substitute
