Aspartame's performance is clean,low calorie and pure taste.(200 times sweeter than Sucrose);Aspartame is used in the manufacture of many sugar-free, low calorie and dietary products, such as:
1.Beverages: carbonated and still soft drinks, fruit-juices and fruit syrups.
2.Table-top: compressed sweeteners, powdered sweeteners (spoon-for-spoon), sweetener sachets and liquid table-top sweeteners.
3.Dry mixes: hot and cold chocolate and beverage mixes and instant desserts.
4.Dairy: yoghurt, frozen novelties and desserts.
5.Confectionery: chewing gum, boiled sweets, pastilles, mints, chocolate, gums and jellies.
6.Pharmaceutical: tablets, sugar-free syrups, powdered mixes and effervescent tablets.
1.Taste same as sugar, cool feeling, without bitterness.
2.Aspartame is 160-200 times sweeter than Sucrose, and may contribute significantly to lower cost of food products, when replacing Sucrose.
3.Aspartame has no negative effect on blood sugar, coronary heart diseases and hypertension. and doesn't cause dental caries.
4.Aspartame can miniaturize the shape of Pharmaceutical preparations and cover the Medicine bitterness.
