Calorie Free Sweeteners
Information About Saccharin
Saccharin - Calorie-Free
Saccharin - Calorie Free Sweetener
Saccharin is a non-caloric sweetener used in a wide range foods and beverages, like 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.
Calorie and Weight Reduction Benefits
Because saccharin passes through the digestive system unabsorbed, it offers a no-calorie sweet taste, so consumers may enjoy 'sweet' foods without ingesting the extra calories contained in natural sweeteners like sucrose (table sugar). This calorie reduction is helpful in weight loss and in calorie-controlled diet treatment of obesity
Safety of Saccharin Calorie-Free Sweeteners
Saccharin has been extensively tested and re-tested. For example, considerable research on human usage has established no association between saccharin and cancer. Saccharin is approved in more than 100 countries and has been determined safe by the Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) of the World Health Organization and the Scientific Committee for Food of the European Union. Indeed, the totality of the available evidence indicates saccharin is safe for human consumption, although in animal tests high doses of saccharin have caused bladder tumors in some male rats which has fuelled concern that saccharin is unsafe.
Saccharin Now Officially Safe as a Calorie-Free Sweetener
In July 1997, prompted by the Calorie Control Council, the U.S. National Institutes of Health announced that its National Toxicology Program (NTP) was reviewing data that could delist saccharin from the federal government's Report on Carcinogens. On December 21, 2000, the President signed federal legislation to remove the saccharin warning label that had been required on saccharin-sweetened foods and beverages in the U.S. since 1977.
