zero calorie soda that is physiologically harmless

Find artificial sweeteners that omit causing insulin release; make them instantly disintegrate after being at the mouth

I think I read that sweetness, perhaps sweetness at the tongue, but it could even be sweetness at the stomach causes insulin release, which is deleterious from cueing fat storage and other things.

To make a physiologically harmless soda They could screen a library of different sweet carbohydrates and sweetness peptides with a mouth swish to find the 99th percentile of least insulin release, then they could use that to sweeten sodas.

It could be that something at the stomach senses sweetness, prompting insulin release, of course without human awareness. sweetness peptides engineered slightly so that they instantly get degraded with stomach acid could preclude any stomach based insulin releasing sweetness response.

So Soda which I find delicious would be harmless!

Brussel Sprouts https://xkcd.com/2241/

       I've never come across a sugar substitute yet that actually did the job advertised (taste like sugar) & didn't have a nasty little chemical back taste of one sort or another, that might be a problem.

       //which I find delicious// You can acclimatise to enjoy anything if you try hard enough (except brussels sprouts)

       Brussel sprouts you just have to be born liking, it's a very rare gene, they've offered me a lot of money to let them study it.

       I was just on amazon trying to find unsweetened lemon drink powder for the umpteenth time. If you look hard enough you can find flavourings in erythritol crystals and erythritol has a low blood sugar response [link]s. 2nd video they are doing blood sugar tests for each sweetener.   

       What I'm really looking for is flavoured IV drip crystals as they would have a good thrist quenching salts balance as well.   

       //brussels sprouts//   

       Makes a great 'bubble and squeak'. Which is a refried dish and not a crude description.

       I'm pretty sure the perception of sweetness is what causes insulin to be released. It would be in line with the bitter and sour reactions.

       Brussels sprouts can be delicious, but are often cooked in such a way that they’re horrible
hippo, Apr 28 2021

       Everything you know about brussels sprouts is a lie <link>
a1, Apr 28 2021

       Oh, and a bone for beanangel's magical thinking.   

       "Delicious" is a matter of taste. There are a lot of flavorings that some people will like (or not), and some are harmless (or not), and where it those sets for some won't be universal.

       Brussel sprouts need to be cooked with bacon! try it...it’s delicious, to my taste anyway.   

       Not brussel sprout soda.
xandram, Apr 28 2021

       //need to be cooked with bacon! try it...it’s delicious//   

       Or Parmesan. Or Parmesan and bacon. Hell, just throw away the first thing you were thinking of and eat parmesan topped bacon.   

       Another thing springs to mind (prepares for the barrage of groans and flying masonry). The types of people eating sugar rather than cruciferous vegetables are the very types of people with weak immune systems getting seriously ill with covid. So we've all endured over a year of lockdowns because of the lazy slobs not looking after themselves properly. And now the technocracy is starting! Damn you! Damn you and your bag of cheetos right to hell!

       The other thing Brussels sprouts need is a little bit of frying in butter - it makes a huge difference. Put sprouts, a big knob of butter and salt into your pan. Add just enough water (about a wineglass) such that it’ll have all boiled away by the time the sprouts are cooked. Cook first with the lid on and then for a bit with the lid off until all the water’s gone and the sprouts are frying in the butter. Allow just a few sprouts to brown lightly but no more or they’ll taste bitter. Take off the heat and stir in the bacon lardons you fried earlier.

       pan seared brussels sprouts with gnocchi
a1, Apr 28 2021

       Right but why bother? Frying things in butter, yes, with bacon, yes, and parmesan, yes, and wineglasses, yes. Cruciferous vegetables, yes kale, cabbage, lovely. But I truly believe that Brussels Sprouts is the sole reason those municipal composting collection systems were set up.
