So, what is cyclamat?

Cyclamates are synthetic sweeteners that are commonly used as a sugar substitute. They are often blended with other sweeteners, such as saccharin, to create low-calorie sweeteners. Cyclamates are roughly 30 times sweeter than sugar, making them a popular choice for people who want to reduce their sugar intake without sacrificing sweetness. Despite being banned in the US in 1969 due to concerns over their safety, they are still widely used in many other countries as a food additive. Cyclamates are also used in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products as a sweetener and flavor enhancer.
