Aspartame-Acesulfame Salt is an artificial sweetener that is made up of two sweeteners:
Aspartame and Acesulfame K.
It is 350 times as sweet as sugar. It is sweeter than either substance on its own (Aspartame 180 times, Acesulfame-K 200 times). In addition the taste is much closer to sugar without the aftertaste of either sweetener.
During digestion the salt is broken down into its component parts, the Aspartame is
metabolized as a protein, and the AcesulfameK is excreted by the kidneys. It contains about 3 calories per gram but only a tiny amount is needed and consequently any typical serving will contain approx zero calories.
The ADIs for twinsweet is not available, but aspartame and acesulfame moieties are
covered by the ADIs established previously for aspartame (0-40 mg/kg bw) and acesulfame-K (0-15 mg/kg bw)
It is mainly used in the food industry as an artificial sweetener. It is a fine flowing powder,
easy to store and work with, does not absorb moisture, and keeps for a long time.
