Acesulfame potassium (also known as acesulfame K or Ace K) is a calorie-free, high intensity sweetener. Acesulfame K is stable under heat and in moderately acidic or basic conditions. This allows it to be used as a food additive in baking or in products that require a long shelf life.
A white, odorless, freely flowing powder, acesulfame potassium has an intense sweet taste: a 3% solution is approximately 200 times sweeter than sucrose. It is freely soluble in water and slightly soluble in ethanol.
Acesulfame potassium has been tested for close to 40 years, with more than 100 studies on safety and efficacy. These studies, including long-term animal feed tests, consistently show acesulfame potassium is a safe and effective no calorie sweetener. It does not promote tooth decay and is suitable for people with diabetes.
Ace K tends to perform even better when blended with other sweeteners like aspartame. Get in touch today to figure out your perfect blend!
