Acesulfame Potassium is a calorie-free sugar substitute widely used as sweetener in food and beverage. As a sweetener, Acesulfame Potassium can be used in a wide variety of industries. Acesulfame K is 200 times sweeter than sucrose, as sweet as aspartame, about 2/3 as sweet as saccharin, and 1/3 as sweet as sucralose.
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.
In carbonated drinks, it is almost always used in conjunction with another sweetener, such as aspartame or sucralose. It is also used as a sweetener in protein shakes and pharmaceutical products.
