  13. 13. With the help of fruit flies, Australian researchers are making progress towards finding new sweeteners for human consumption. They have exploited fruit flies’ highly developed sense of taste to select sweeteners with the greatest potential from an ever increasing pool of synthetic sweeteners developed in laboratories.
