High-intensity sweeteners are widely used as an alternative to sugar to enhance and sweeten various food & beverages. Moreover, these compounds are several times sweeter than regular sugar; and hence, are required in lower concentration for sweetening the products. These are used as replacements to sucrose (sugar) due to their overall sweeter taste and low-calorie content.
