Jump to: navigation, search

The Calorie Control Council is a non-profit group "representing the low-calorie and reduced-fat food and beverage industry. Today it represents 60 manufacturers and suppliers of low-calorie, low-fat and light foods and beverages, including the manufacturers and suppliers of more than a dozen different dietary sweeteners, fat replacers and other low-calorie ingredients." [1]

"The Council has sponsored numerous studies on low-calorie ingredients, foods and beverages -- including investigations in the areas of mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, metabolism, consumer usage and public opinion," it states on its website. [2]

It also published the website, The Truth About Aspartame.

The CCC website, according to a search at Joker.com, was registered in early January 1997 by The Kellen Company, a company which provides a range of support services to "association clients." [3] (The Kellen Company offers PR services to clients via its PR division, Kellen Communications). The office address and phone number for the CCC are shared by The Kellen Company and thirteen other associations comprising the Association For Dressing & Sauces, Chilled Food Association, the Concord Grape Association, the Enteral Nutrition Council, Exhibit Designers & Producers Association, Georgia Financial Services Association, Health Care Convention & Exhibitors Association, Horseradish Information Council, International Jelly & Preserve Association, National Association Of Margarine Manufacturers, National Institute For Oilseed Products, National Pecan Shellers Association and the Processed Apples Institute.
