Sweeten without calories
What are non-caloric sweeteners?
Non-caloric sweeteners are natural or artificial substances that, compared to sucrose (table sugar), have a much higher sweetening power, while their caloric content, a difference from this, is much lower – or zero.
Although their sweetening power is much higher, they have the peculiarity that after a certain dose, the sweetening power remains constant.
Currently, these sweeteners are combined with sugar to achieve a much greater sweetening power.[Division]
