What is Acesulfame K?

A non-caloric sweetening agent manufactured artificially, Acesulfame K (Ace K) is approximately 200 times sweeter than sugar. The K in Ace K stands for Potassium, one of the materials within the product. Some companies do sell this as Acesulfame Potassium.

The manufacture of Acesulfame K happens through a process where acetoacetic acid reacts with Potassium. Through a range of methods, this combination created Acesulfame K.

As a result, Ace K is stable at a molecular level. This stability results in its application in foods such as baking and products with a longer shelf life. It does not degrade under heat, acidic or base conditions whilst aiding extended shelf life applications.

As mentioned, this stability means Ace K goes into products from baked goods to confectionery, carbonated drinks, fruit juices and beyond. As such, sugar-free products and medicines use Acesulfame K to reduce calories, reduce the chance of cavities, diabetes and much more.

As previously mentioned, many sweeteners work with Acesulfame K to provide more flexible applications for other sweeteners with their stability.
