Saccharin is an artificial sweetener that is non-nutritive and is 300-500 times sweeter than sucrose but with a metallic or bitter aftertaste when added in higher quantities. It is used as a sugar substitute, to sweeten foods like cookies, soft drinks, and candies. It is also added to products such as medicines and toothpaste. Calcium, sodium and insoluble saccharin are the common types of saccharin available in the market. It finds its applications in sectors like food and beverages, table top sweetener, personal care, and pharmaceutical, among others.
Saccharin is derived from ortho toluene sulphonamide, sodium bichromate dihydrate, sulphuric acid, and sodium bicarbonate. The report analyses the regional markets like China, India and South East Asia.
