Neotame, is a calorie-free artificial sweetener and a close relative of aspartame. By weight, it is a staggering 8,000 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar). Unlike sugar, it doesn’t impart any noticeable off-flavors. In fact, it actually enhances the natural flavors of the food it’s added to. While it can be used on its own, it’s often blended with other sweeteners to boost their individual sweetness, creating a synergistic effect, and to reduce any undesirable aftertastes, such as those associated with saccharin. Neotame also exhibits greater chemical stability than aspartame. When compared to other sweeteners, its use is cost-effective because only small amounts of neotame are required.
Neotame is suitable for use in carbonated soft drinks, yogurts, cakes, drink powders, and bubble gums among other foods. It can be used as a table top sweetener for hot drinks like coffee. It covers bitter tastes (e.g. caffene).
In 2002, FDA approved it as a non-nutritive sweetener and flavor enhancer within United States in foods generally, except meat and poultry. In 2010, it was approved for use in foods within EU with the E number E961. It has also been approved as an additive in many other countries outside US and EU.
