Sugar substitute

A sugar substitute, or artificial sweetener, is a food additive which duplicates the effect of sugar or corn syrup in taste, but often with less food energy.

In the United States, five artificially derived sugar substitutes have been approved for use.

They are saccharin, aspartame, sucralose, neotame and acesulfame potassium.
