Property Description

International studies on sodium saccharin have shown that sodium saccharin does not have the risk of teratogenic and cancer. It is safe to use sodium saccharin reasonably according to regulations. However, there are always some people worry about "eating too much saccharin will be harmful". In fact, the sweetener is added to gain sweetness, there is no point in adding too much. Adding too much will only make people feel cloying and the enterprise will increase the cost. So at a normal sweetness level, it's usually not excessive. For example, the current safety standard (ADI) of sodium saccharin formulated by the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) is no more than 5 milligrams per kilogram of body weight per day, which is equivalent to a person of 60 kg eating 300 mg/day. 300 milligrams of sodium saccharin is as sweet as 90 to 150 grams of sucrose, so people shouldn't worry about eating too much of it.

Health Canada updated its list of approved sweeteners on May 24, approving saccharin, saccharin calcium, saccharin potassium, and saccharin sodium as table sweeteners. The new regulations take effect from the date of promulgation. Health Canada said it had assessed that saccharin, calcium saccharin, potassium saccharin and sodium saccharin as table sweeteners would not affect human health. Currently, Canada has approved saccharin, saccharin calcium, saccharin potassium, saccharin sodium for a variety of non-standardized food. Some of the original reports are as follows:

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a detailed safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of saccharin as a sweetener in various unstandardized foods, including table-top sweeteners.

Currently, saccharin, calcium saccharin, potassium saccharin, and sodium saccharin are permitted for use as sweeteners in various unstandardized foods sold in Canada.

As no safety concerns were raised through Health Canada's assessment the Department has enabled the food additive use of saccharin as a sweetener described in the information document below by updating the List of Permitted Sweeteners, effective May 24, 2016.

Notice: Sodium saccharin is an organic chemical synthetic product, which is a food additive rather than a food. It has no nutritional value to human body except that it causes sweet taste. On the contrary, when eating more saccharin, it will affect the normal secretion of gastrointestinal digestive enzymes, reduce the absorption capacity of the small intestine, so that appetite loss.
