Artificial sweeteners, colorants, oils, and medications are manufactured after they are accepted by the U.S. FDA. In order to have such acceptance for public use, companies have to complete exhaustive testing to demonstrate the safety of their products. Outline the testing procedures required by the FDA to approve new products. As an educated consumer, how should you determine whether a product is safe, useful, or beneficial based on your knowledge of this testing phase and the information provided to the consumer?
