So, what is acesulfamo-k?

Acesulfame-K is a calorie-free artificial sweetener that is commonly used in food and drinks as a sugar substitute. It has a sweetness level that is about 200 times greater than table sugar and is often blended with other low-calorie sweeteners to enhance the taste of foods like baked goods, canned fruits, and dairy products. Acesulfame-K is considered safe for consumption by various regulatory agencies worldwide, but some studies suggest that long-term exposure may have negative effects on health. Despite this, acesulfame-K remains a popular option for those looking to reduce their sugar intake while still enjoying sweet treats.
