Sodium Saccharin (benzoic sulfimide) is an artificial sweetener with effectively no food energy that is about 300–400 times as sweet as sucrose but has a bitter or metallic aftertaste, especially at high concentrations. It is used to sweeten products such as drinks, candies, cookies, and medicines.
Sodium Saccharin, with E number E954, CAS number 6155-57-3 or 128-44-9, manufacturing process by chemical synthesis, toluene and chlorosulfonic acid as main raw materials. It is available in anhydrous and di-hydrated form. As a professional Sodium Saccharin supplier, we supply granular 20-40mesh and 40-80mesh industrial and food grade, also spried 100mesh. Sodium Saccharin used in food, mouthwash, toothpaste widely as a safe food additive in many countries with E number E954. Major application of Sodium saccharine is used as a low calorie sweetener and stabilizer in a variety of food and drinks. In bakeries it is used to sweeten baked goods, breads, cookies and muffins. Due to its rapidly dissolving nature in water, it is used as an artificial sweetener in carbonated beverages and sodas.
Saccharin is heat stable.It does not react chemically with other food ingredients; as such, it stores well. Blends of saccharin with other sweeteners are often used to compensate for each sweetener's weaknesses and faults. A 10:1 cyclamate:saccharin blend is common in countries where both these sweeteners are legal; in this blend, each sweetener masks the other's off taste. Saccharin is often used with aspartame in diet carbonated soft drinks, so some sweetness remains should the fountain syrup be stored beyond aspartame's relatively short shelf life.
In its acid form, saccharin is not water-soluble. The form used as an artificial sweetener is usually its sodium salt. The calcium salt is also sometimes used, especially by people restricting their dietary sodium intake. Both salts are highly water-soluble: 0.67 g/ml water at room temperature.
Application and Uses of Saccharin Sodium
Saccharin Sodium is a salt of saccharin widely used as sweetener in food and beverage. As a high-intensity sweetener, Sodium Saccharin used in toothpaste wildly. Also can be used in a wide variety of industries including: food production, beverage, cosmetics, agriculture/animal feed, and various other industries.
