The main usage
As the non nutritional type sweetener, can be widely used in the solid beverage, pickles kinds, candied fruit, gum confection, dining table used sweet taste materials all kinds of food.
Acesulfame is a kind of food additive, is the chemicals, similar to saccharin, soluble in water, the solubility is 27 grams when the temperature is 20 celsius degree. Increase food sweet taste, no nutrition, taste good, no heat, has in the human body not metabolism, not absorption (is the elderly, obesity patients, patients with diabetes ideal sweetener), has good stability for heat and acid characteristic, is currently the world's fourth generation synthetic sweeteners. It and other sweeteners mixed used can produce strong synergistic effect, in the general concentration can increase the sweetness 30%~50%.
In 1967 by the German Hurst company first found, for the first time in 1983 in Britain is approved, the sweetness is 200~250 times than the sucrose. Acesulfame is to light, heat (the ability 225 celsius degree high temperature) stability, the pH scope of application is widely ((pH=3-7)), is one of the best stability of sweeteners in the world, in the air not hygroscopic, stable to the heat. Can prevent the 225 celsius degree high temperature, and stable in the pH2~10 scope, when using, will not react with other food ingredients or additives. Is suitable for the baking food and acid beverage. In addition, the acesulfame security is high, the United Nations FAO/WHO joint food additive committee of experts agree the acesulfame is used for A grade food additive, and recommended the daily intake (ADI) is 0~15mg/kg.
In 1988 the United States food and drug administration (FDA) has approved use the acesulfame in the food, regulating the daily intake (ADI) is 0~15mg/kg, in 1998 the FDA approved use the acesulfame in the soft drinks. The sweet taste is pure and strong, which is better than the sucrose sweetener lasted for a long time, use with the aspartame 1: 1 will have obvious synergistic effect.
After the acesulfame potassium has been found, by Carl Klaus and Harald Jensen in Hochst company in 1967 accidentally discovered the similar compounds, is today's A-K sugar. In the occasional chemical soak, he and Klaus are licking their fingers, he picked up a piece of paper. The subsequent research shows that, A-K sugar has the same basic ring structure and different number sweetness level. This kind of compound has special attractive taste characteristic and easier to synthesis, so it for the further study of the monosaccharide has made the contribution, and by the world health organization in 1978 regulated the common name (Acesulfame).
The acesulfame production process is not complicated, the price is cheap, the performance is better than aspartame, is considered to be one of the most promising sweeteners. After 15 years of experiment and examination, the United Nation world health organization, the United State food and drug administration, the European Union authorities etc get the conclusion is that: " The acesulfame for human and animals is safety and harmless ".
At present, there are more than 90 countries in the world have formally approved the acesulfame can be used in the food, beverage, oral health / cosmetics (can be used for rouge, lipstick, toothpaste and mouthwash, etc. ) and drug (for syrup preparation, sugar coated tablet, bitter medicine masking agent, etc. ) fields.
The ministry of health in China in May 1992 has formally approved the acesulfame can be used in the food, beverage fields, but can not exceed using (see details in the national standard GB2760-2007 ).
|The acesulfame is the artificial sweeteners, regular consumption synthetic sweeteners exceeds the food are harmful for the liver and nervous system in the body, especially for the old man, pregnant women, children is more harmful. If in a short time taking a large number of acesulfame , can cause thrombocytopenia lead to acute hemorrhage.|
|1.With other artificial sweeteners, there are acesulfame potassium above safety problems. Although these sweetener studies show that the different diet safety and dispute degrees, the United States food and drug administration (FDA) has approved its widespread use. The critics say that, the acesulfame potassium has not been well studied, and can cause cancer, but these claims have been the United States (FDA) and European Union equivalent authorities rejected.|
|2.With acesulfame K table related some potential impact has appeared in the animal research, acesulfame K has been proved stimulus dose dependent rats insulin secretion, but no hypoglycemia were observed.|
|3.The rodent research shows that a response to the government’s acesulfame light  by the national toxicology program dong the study, there is no higher incidence rates of tumor, 60 rats give the acesulfame for 40 weeks, so that as many as 3% of total dietary (the equivalent of a people consume 134312 ounces of artificial sweet soda everyday tank). There is no evidence show that these to acesulfame (or lower) level K table increased mice cancer or other cancer risk. Have suggested that in the food safety aspect for the further research.|
