Saccharin is an artificial or non-nutritive sweetener.

It is made in a laboratory through the oxidation of the chemicals o-toluenesulfonamide or phthalic anhydride. It looks like white, crystalline powder.

Saccharin is commonly used as a sugar substitute because it doesn't contain calories or carbs. Humans can't break down saccharin, so it leaves the body unchanged.

It is around 300–400 times sweeter than regular sugar, so you only need a small amount to get the sweet taste.

However, it can have an unpleasant, bitter aftertaste. This is why saccharin is often mixed with other low or zero-calorie sweeteners.

For example, saccharin is sometimes combined with aspartame, another low-calorie sweetener commonly found in carbonated diet drinks.
