Dear Mrs. Martini,

Thank you for contacting the FDA. Your question on 10/6/17 was forwarded to me for a response.

The food additive regulation for Advantame is found under Title 21 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR) 172.803 [https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/retrieveECFR?gp=1&SID=a0505d0802ae61d9d4e60618dd82f43e&ty=HTML&h=L&mc=true&r=SECTION&n=se21.3.172_1803 ].

Advantame must be declared by name in the list of ingredients on food products per 21 CFR 101.4 (a)(1) [https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID=a3559e23b5b7103ee17cf8e20c5ae3ab&mc=true&node=pt21.2.101&rgn=div5#se21.2.101_1100 ].
