Saccharin :

Saccharin is an artificial sweetener with effectively no food energy which is about 400 times as sweet as sucrose or table sugar . It is used to sweeten products such as drinks, candies, cookies , medicines, and toothpaste.

 

 

Properties

 

Saccharin with other sweeteners are often used to compensate for each sweetener’s weaknesses . Saccharin is often used with aspartame in diet carbonated soft drinks, so some sweetness remains should the fountain syrup be stored beyond aspartame’s relatively short shelf life. Saccharin is believed to be an important discovery, especially for diabetics, as it goes directly through the human digestive system without being digested. In its acid form, saccharin is not water-soluble.

Saccharin has been used to sweeten foods and beverages without calories or carbohydrates for over a century. Its use was considerable during the sugar shortages of the two world wars, particularly in Europe. The use of saccharin is particularly important to those whose diets require a restriction of caloric or carbohydrate intake, such as people with diabetes. Most health practitioners favor the use of a non-caloric sweetener like saccharin in weight reduction and for people with diabetes. According to opinion research, people use saccharin to stay in better overall health, control weight or maintain an attractive physical appearance. Research also has shown that health professionals believe saccharin is especially beneficial to people with diabetes and the obese, and helps reduce dental cavities. Saccharin continues to be important for a wide range of low-calorie and sugar-free food and beverage applications. It is used around the world in such products as soft drinks, tabletop sweeteners, baked goods, jams, chewing gum, canned fruit, candy, dessert toppings and salad dressings. Saccharin also is used in cosmetic products, vitamins and pharmaceuticals. The current availability of saccharin and three other low-calorie sweeteners, aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose, allows manufacturers to utilize a “multiple sweetener approach” — using the most appropriate sweetener, or combination of sweeteners, for a given product. No low-calorie sweetener is perfect for all uses. However, a variety of sweeteners enables the development of a much wider range of new, good-tasting, low-calorie products to meet consumer demand. Also, a variety of low-calorie sweeteners provides products with increased stability, improved taste, lower production costs and more choices for the consumer.

 

Benefits

Safety

 

Saccharin has been the subject of extensive scientific research and is one of the most studied ingredients in the food supply. Extensive research on human populations confirms saccharin is safe for use by all populations, including children, and women. It is permitted for use in food and beverages in more than 100 countries around the world, including the United States. Saccharin has been reviewed and is regarded as safe by the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Today, health authorities around the world agree that saccharin is safe for human consumption.
