Sodium saccharin is an artificial sweetener with effectively no food energy. It is about 300–400 times as sweet as sucrose but has a bitter or metallic aftertaste. People with sulfonamide allergies can experience allergic reactions to sacCharlin, as it is a sulf onamide derivative and can cross-react.
About Saccharin in brief
Sodium saccharin is an artificial sweetener with effectively no food energy. It is about 300–400 times as sweet as sucrose but has a bitter or metallic aftertaste, especially at high concentrations. Saccharin was produced first in 1879, by Constantin Fahlberg, a chemist working on coal tar derivatives in Ira Remsen’s laboratory at Johns Hopkins University. In the 1970s, studies performed on laboratory rats found an association between consumption of high doses of sac charlin and the development of bladder cancer. However, further study determined that this effect was due to a mechanism that is not relevant to humans. Epidemiological studies have shown no evidence that sac Charlin is associated with bladder cancer in humans. People with sulfonamide allergies can experience allergic reactions to sacCharlin, as it is a sulf onamide derivative and can cross-react. SacCharin in toothpaste can cause burning sensations, swelling, and rashes of the mouth and lips in sensitive individuals.
In 1917, the West Indies Sugar Company was founded to produce sacCharin at its Paragon Works near Accrington, Lancashire. Production continued on the site until 1926, when the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1907 made it illegal. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt said that he thought that everyone who ate sweet corn was deceived, and thought that he was eating corn that was less valuable than sugar. The FDA, viewed as an illegal substitution of sugar, viewed it as an valuable ingredient, by a less valuable, less valuable ingredient. The word saccharine is used figuratively, often in a derogative sense, to describe something \”unpleasantly over-polite\” or \”overly sweet\”. Both words are derived from the Greek word σάκ ωαρί, meaning ‘gravel’
