What do you know about artificial sweeteners?
Artificial sweeteners are sugar substitutes that are used in place of sugar to provide a sweet taste without the added calories. They are used in the food industry for beverage and dairy products and in a range of other products such as medications, vitamins, and personal care products.
Artificial sweeteners are typically derived from a variety of sources, including plants, animals, and synthetic chemicals. Some of the most common artificial sweeteners include aspartame, sucralose, and saccharin. These sweeteners are often used in combination with other sweeteners to achieve the desired level of sweetness and to improve the overall taste of a product.
Available in various forms, including powders, liquids, and granules, artificial sweeteners are typically used in small amounts, as they are typically much sweeter than sugar. This allows manufacturers to use less sweetener to achieve the same level of sweetness, resulting in products with fewer calories and lower levels of sugar.
