Ajinomoto Company is the world leader in the production and marketing of the sweetening ingredient aspartame. AminoSweet is the brand name for Ajinomoto’s aspartame, chosen because aspartame is a simple ingredient made from two amino acids; the building blocks of protein. It is digested to its components just like other protein-containing foods found widely in the everyday diet including milk, fish and vegetables.
