So, what is acesulfam-k?

Acesulfame-K, also known as Acesulfame Potassium, is a calorie-free sweetener commonly used in the food and beverage industry. It is about 200 times sweeter than sugar and can withstand high temperatures, making it a popular choice for baked goods and other heat-processed foods. Acesulfame-K has a slightly bitter aftertaste, which is often masked when used in combination with other sweeteners. It is considered safe for consumption by various food regulatory agencies around the world and is used in a wide range of products, from soft drinks to chewing gum.
