So, what is acesulfame-potassium?

Acesulfame-potassium, also known as Acesulfame K, is a calorie-free sugar substitute commonly used in the food and beverage industry. It is 200 times sweeter than table sugar, making it a popular choice in low-calorie and sugar-free products. Acesulfame-potassium is stable under high temperatures and acidic conditions, making it suitable for use in a wide range of food products, including soft drinks, chewing gum, and baked goods. While it is generally regarded as safe for consumption, some studies have suggested that high doses of acesulfame-potassium may have negative effects on the body.
