  • Saccharin: Saccharin is the most popular artificial sweetener, and is chemically o-sulphobenzimide. It is insoluble in water, and is hence marketed as its water-soluble sodium or calcium salt. It is about 550 times sweeter than cane sugar, with no calorific value.
  • Aspartame: It is a successful artificial sweetener. Chemically, it is a dipeptide derived from phenylalanine methyl ester and aspartic acid. It is about 100 times sweeter than cane sugar. However, it is unstable at cooking temperatures, and hence, cannot be used in cooked goods. It is only useful in cold foods and soft drinks.
  • Alitame: It is an aspartic-acid containing dipeptide sweetener. It is 2000 times sweeter than sucrose, and is twice as stable as aspartame in hot conditions like those in cooking. Unlike aspartame, it does not contain phenylalanine and can be used by people with phenylketonuria.
  • Sucralose: It is a trichloro derivative of sucrose. It is 600 times as sweet as cane sugar, with zero calories. Its appearance and taste are similar to those of sugar. It is commonly used as it is stable at cooking temperatures.
