CAS Number: 55589-62-3
Acesulfame Potassium (Acesulfame K or Ace K) is a calorie-free sugar substitute. It is 200 times sweeter than sucrose (common table sugar), as sweet as Aspartame and one third as sweet as sucralose. Like Saccharin, it has a slightly bitter aftertaste, especially at high concentrations. Unlike Aspartame, it is stable under heat, and even under moderately acidic or basic conditions, allowing it to be used as a food additive in baking or in products that require a long shelf life. When used in soft drinks, it is often blended with other substitutes, such as aspartame and sucralose.
Combining the sweeteners can help mask the bitter aftertaste and create the sensation of even greater sweetness. It can also be used as a sweetener in health / protein shakes and pharmaceutical products, where it can make some of the active ingredients taste more palatable.

Aspartame is an artificial, non-saccharide sweetener that can be used as a sugar substitute in some foods and beverages and is approximately 200 times sweeter than sucrose (common table sugar). The taste of aspartame and other artificial sweeteners do differ from that of table sugar, though aspartame is said to come closest to sugar’s taste profile among the approved artificial sweeteners.
Like many other sweeteners, aspartame may break down into its constituent amino acids under conditions of elevated temperature or high pH. This makes aspartame less desirable as a baking sweetener, and prone to degrading in products with a high pH, which is required for a long shelf life. The stability of aspartame under heating can be improved to some extent by encasing it in fats or in maltodextrin.
Aspartame is a general-purpose sweetener that can be used in a large range of foods and beverages, including dairy, bakery, confectionery, soft drink and pharmaceutical applications, as well as syrups, salad dressings, snack foods and cereals to name just a few.
