Is the Acesulfame K the sweetener in Nectavida a form of Aspartame?

0

Acesulfame K is a non-caloric sweetener that is entirely unrelated to Aspartame. It was selected as the sweetener in Nectavida for a number of reasons. It has excellent stability under high temperatures and good solubility. Acesulfame K is 200 times sweeter than sucrose, and it has a clean, quickly perceptible, sweet taste that does not linger or leave an aftertaste. It is not metabolized by the body and is excreted completely unchanged. Finally, it has an excellent shelf life, does not contribute to tooth decay, and is useful in diabetic diets.
