DESCRIPTION

Acesulfame potassium, also known as acesulfame K or Ace K, is a calorie-free sugar substitute (artificial sweetener).

Acesulfame potassium (also known as acesulfame K or Ace K) is a calorie-free sugar substitute (artificial sweetener). Acesulfame K is 200 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar). Unlike aspartame, acesulfame K is stable under heat, even under moderately acidic or basic conditions, allowing it to be used as a food additive in baking, or in products that require a long shelf life.

Acesulfame Potassium is a white, odorless, freely flowing powder having an intense sweet taste. A 3% solution is approximately 200 times sweeter than sucrose. It is freely soluble in water and slightly soluble in ethanol. This material is Kosher, Pareve and Halal Certified.
