Artificial sweeteners (aspartame, saccharin) were tested using the limit concentration (100 mg/l or 100 mg/kg). Model species were duckweed (Lemna minor), green algae (Desmodesmus subspicatus), mustard seeds (Sinapis alba), daphnids (Daphnia magna), lettuce seeds (Lactuca sativa), and potworm (Enchytraeus crypticus). The results indicated that aspartame had statistically negative effects on duckweed and both sweeteners on the reproduction of enchytraeids.
