Artificial Sweeteners

Synthetic compounds that duplicate the taste of sugar, but contain less energy, are often added to diet foods and beverages. The logic is to maintain the desired taste, but reduce the caloric value. To achieve a targeted sweetness, artificial sweeteners are often used in specific combinations to mimic the sweetness observed from natural sugars. Because artificial sweeteners are considered additives, they are often regulated. Therefore, their identifications and concentrations must be determined.
