So, what is acesulfame?

Acesulfame is a calorie-free sweetener that's commonly used in the food industry as a sugar substitute. It's around 200 times sweeter than regular sugar, so only a small amount is needed to achieve the desired sweetness. Acesulfame is often found in low-calorie and sugar-free products, such as soft drinks, chewing gum, and baked goods. Although it's considered safe for consumption by most regulatory bodies, some studies suggest that it may have negative effects on gut bacteria and insulin levels. As with all food additives, moderation is key.
