So, what is aceszulfám-k?

Acesulfame-K, also known as aceszulfám-k, is a calorie-free sugar substitute commonly used in various food and beverage products to provide sweetness without adding calories. This white crystalline powder has a sweet taste that is approximately 200 times sweeter than sugar. It is stable under high temperatures and can be used in cooking and baking. Acesulfame-K is often combined with other artificial sweeteners such as aspartame or sucralose to create a more balanced flavor profile. Despite being approved for use by many regulatory agencies, some studies suggest that acesulfame-K may have health risks if consumed in large quantities.
