Potassium Saccharin: Market Outlook
Sweetener is a sugar substitute which is a type of food additive. It helps providing sweet taste, but replaces sugar completely. There are various categories of sweeteners available in the market such as low-calorie sweetener or zero-calorie sweetener, high intensity sweeteners and others. There are two main types such as natural sweetener and artificial sweetener. Naturally obtained sweeteners are called as natural sweeteners such as agave syrup, honey and many others. There are certain chemical formulations made in order to produce sweeteners, those come under the category of artificial sweeteners.

Potassium saccharin is a type of artificial sweetener, with no food energy. It is much sweeter than sucrose, studies say that it is 400 times sweeter than sucrose. Potassium saccharin has a metallic and bitter after taste, especially when consumed in high concentrations. It is used in food products such as candies, drinks, medicines and cookies.
Potassium Saccharin and its Properties:
Many food products adopts the usage of potassium saccharin for various reasons such as it is heat stable and does not possess any chemical reaction with other food ingredients. Usually potassium saccharin is coupled with other products in order to form blends, this helps to compensate for every sweeteners faults and weakness. There is a certain blend commonly used by most of the food manufacturers which is the cyclamate and potassium saccharin blend. This blend is common as it helps mask the bitter taste.
In the carbonated drinks, potassium saccharin is blended with aspartame, as it helps regulate the sweetness of the beverages. It also helps to maintain the shelf life of the beverages. Potassium saccharin is not water soluble when it is present in the acid form. The acid molecules are reduced into potassium saccharin salts which are then used as artificial sweeteners.
People who cannot consume the potassium salts, then the calcium form of saccharin is expected to be consumed by the people. Potassium saccharin helps reduce weight, reduces the cause of cancer, and does not cause any metabolic disorder. Potassium saccharin is a low-calorie artificial sweetener which does not cause any obesity.
