So, what is sodium cyclamate?

Sodium cyclamate is a commonly used artificial sweetener that has zero calories and is about 30 to 50 times sweeter than sugar. It is derived from cyclohexylsulfamic acid and is often used in combination with other artificial sweeteners like saccharin to enhance sweetness. It is stable and soluble in water, making it a popular ingredient in many food and beverage products such as soft drinks, desserts, and candies. While it is approved for use in many countries, it is banned in the United States due to concerns about its potential to cause cancer.
