to NeedsTheTruth -- Here is the exact link for the "How aspartame is made" article http://www.madehow.com/Volume-3/Aspartame.html Read it and become enlightened To answer your question, yes, aspartame is made from the excretion products of bacteria. At least, it was back in 1991 when I worked for NutraSweet company in the lab that purposefully modified microorganisms (by cloning in certain genes) to overproduce the amino acids. I assume since our team went to all the work to improve fermentation yields to the point we did, that they are still using the same methods. Please note: with such a simple life form as a single celled bacteria, the excretion products are very simple and not generally called feces, even though one of the definitions of feces is dregs or sediment.
