Artificial sweeteners are sugar substitutes, which have a sweet taste and are produced synthetically. As of now they are used as a sugar alternative since they contain low calories, and help maintain low blood sugar levels. They are widely used in processed foods such as powdered drink mixes, candies, jams & jellies, baked goods, dairy products, and other similar food & beverages to maintain the taste and simultaneously make it healthier. Major artificial sweeteners include aspartame, saccharin, and sodium benzoate. Aspartame is widely used as a table top sweetener in the market. It is around 200 times sweeter than ordinary sugar and is used in low calorie desserts, sugar-free chewing gums, cereals, tea, coffee, yogurt, milk formulations, etc.
