Does hot crystal light kill you?

The temperature of crystal light would not affect a person. It should not be deadly at any temperature. I've heard that aspartame releases formaldehyde when heated, but I don't know how tried and true this is. Some say the research that backs this up create levels that far exceed what would be found in human foods. And despite health concerns about ingesting formaldehyde, the truth is that small amounts are found in other, unprocessed, foods in nature such as shitake mushrooms. If it puts your mind at ease, the FDA has approved aspartame for foods that are heated, and it is even present in baked goods. However, all science aside, I don't recommend drinking it warm. I use the Walmart version of Crystal Light, and I've noticed that if a glass is left out or reused throughout the day, a very bad chemical taste and smell develops. As a result, I've reduced my intake and have switched over to unsweetened teas, watered down fruit juices, or water with lemon. I don't enjoy the taste of tap water without some kind of flavoring, and bottled water is just too expensive to purchase on a regular basis.

Does crystal light have aspartame?

Yes, absolutely. Without sugar it seems to be the only substance used as a sweetener these days, although Stevia is starting to come into the picture more.
Source: I've been allergic to aspartame for 5 years now, I quickly learned how to avoid it. i know Crystal Light has a sweetener called phenylalanine. However i am not sure of it being as good or bad for you as aspartame is..

Does drinking crystal light count the same for your daily water intake?

Yes, Crystal Light actually does count for the same daily water intake. The only thing that it does is add color to your water, and also make the unflavorless water have some kind of flavor. Crystal Light is exactly what the name says; It is a flavor drink that is light for your intaking. So I do imagine that Crystal Light packets in water do count the same for your daily water intake.

Is crystal light bad for you?

Look at it like this...

What throws off crystal lite is that it is "Convenient". How could something be sugar free and add flavor? They use a sweetener. Ok what sweetener is extreamly sweet and does not require much.... hmmm aspartame? Its cheap and sweeter than sugar...

HEY isent aspartame in diet cokes? I know cokes are bad! Anyone with any knowledge of nutrition can tell you to steer clear of aspartame.

If it's cal free, carb, free, sugar free (whatever it is) you can clearly see that something is up.

aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the FDA. Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death. A few of the 90 different documented symptoms listed in the report as being caused by aspartame include: Headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain.

According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting of aspartame: Brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, parkinson's disease, alzheimer's, mental retardation, lymphoma, birth defects, fibromyalgia, and diabetes.

Aspartame is made up of three chemicals: aspartic acid, phenylalanine, and methanol. The book "Prescription for Nutritional Healing," by James and Phyllis Balch, lists aspartame under the category of "chemical poison." More about the dangers of aspertame could be found on this website http://www.mercola.com/article/aspartame/dangers.htm

Why does crystal light mold?

The sweetener used in crystal light can be tasted by humans, but not broken down by our bodies, thereby giving us no calorie/nutrition intake. That being said, mold is not the same as us and some forms can even grow on and break down tree bark to get needed calories/nutrition - again a source of energy that is not available to us since we cannot break it down. The mold you see in the container just happens to be a form that can live off the sweetener in crystal light, otherwise it would not be there. In a research project I was working on, a fellow team of scientists were having some success with engineering bacteria to the point that they could live off of breaking down PCB pollution, thereby hopefully giving us a future option of cheap natural pollution cleanup.

I just read that Kool Aid has a pH of 3.0-3.53, so perhaps Crystal Light is near that. This is less acidic than cola but probably not as good for you as Green Tea.
