Acesulfame potassium

Acesulfame Potassium is an artificial sweetner.
This is of interest to Entrepreneurs...
Applications in Pharmaceutical Formulation or Technology :
Acesulfame potassium is used as an intense sweetening agent in
cosmetics, foods, beverage products, table-top sweeteners, vitamin
and pharmaceutical preparations, including powder mixes, tablets,
and liquid products. It is widely used as a sugar substitute in
compounded formulations,(1) and as a toothpaste sweetener.(2)
The approximate sweetening power is 180–200 times that of
sucrose, similar to aspartame, about one-third as sweet as sucralose,
one-half as sweet as sodium saccharin, and about 4-5 times sweeter
than sodium cyclamate.(3) It enhances flavor systems and can be
used to mask some unpleasant taste characteristics
How is acesulfame potassium made?
Acesulfame potassium is made from a process that involves the transformation of an organic
intermediate, acetoacetic acid, and its combination with the naturally occurring mineral,
potassium, to form a highly stable, crystalline sweetener.
