The issue, as I understand it, is that a non caloric sweetener can trigger an insulin response even though your blood glucose has not been raised. (You can get this process started by just thinking about food.) This would lower your BG below... (more)

I think it's more of an issue of hyper palatability - as with most processed foods. You shouldn't, naturally, find umami (glutamate in the whey), sweet, salty, and fatty all in the same morsel.

You could be intolerant to the mannitol, which is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol (A FODMAP). Do pineapples, olives, or asparagus agree with you?
