I have an unopened bottle of lemon Lime a Bitters which has a use by date of nov 2017
Is it still drinkable?......
I think drinkability could best be judged by the taste. As cordial has no nutritional value (sugar?) what is there to degrade? I love the no added sugar version of Bickford's, as I am a diabetic, but my bottle has a BEST BEFORE DATE not a USE BY DATE. This may give you some comfort, but again let taste be the judge.
What happened to Bickfords Cranberry cordial? It was the best flavour of all their brands.
Does Bickford Diet lemon lime and bitters have dangerous artificial sweetener in it such as aspartame etc?
Given the quality that Bickfords' cordials seem to be, I would doubt it.
Look at the label in a supermarket if you can find their Diet varities (I cannot recall seeing them) or ring the company's factory and head office in Adelaide South Australia on 08 8182 1888.
There is not currently one scientific peer reviewed study that finds Aspartame is dangerous, but I will happily change my mind if you can point one out (because science).
It is probably the most tested food additive we have, and it breaks down into elements that are commonly found in your natural daily diet.
If you choose not to use it that’s your opinion and choice, but don’t make statements like that that are not backed up.
