Overview: What is Saccharin?
A sweetener that is roughly 300 to 400 times sweeter than sugar, Saccharin is an artificial product with a bitter and metallic aftertaste. It is the most similar to sugar in its initial taste, so many goods use it worldwide.
Saccharin is manufactured by the oxidation of o-toluenesulfonamide and from phthalic anhydride. Once oxidised, the product is milled, filtered and purified before it's repacking and shipping worldwide.
Sodium Saccharin is a heat and chemically stable product, so it stores well. It is most commonly blended with other sweeteners to balance the instability and any missing initial tastes whilst covering up the aftertaste found in Saccharin alongside its occasionally oversweet notes. In its acid form, Sodium Saccharin is not soluble in water.
Whether candy, cookies, carbonated drinks syrups or anything else, Saccharin is a versatile addition to many food, beverage and pharmaceutical companies. Its stability makes it a valuable asset to any company looking to create reduced-sugar or sugar-free products. As a result, Saccharin can be found in countless products as well as in medicines.
