So, what is acésulfame potassique?

Acésulfame potassique, also known as Acesulfame-K or Ace-K, is a calorie-free sweetener that is commonly used as a sugar substitute in various food and beverage products. It is a white, crystalline powder that is about 200 times sweeter than regular sugar. This ingredient is often used in combination with other sweeteners to create a more natural taste, as it can sometimes have a slightly bitter aftertaste on its own. Ace-K is stable at high temperatures, making it suitable for use in baked goods, and is also resistant to acidic environments, making it ideal for use in soft drinks and other acidic beverages.
