Saccharin is the oldest of the non-nutritive sweeteners; currently produced from purified; manufactured methyl anthranilate; a substance that occurs naturally in grapes. It is 300 times sweeter than sucrose; heat-stable and does not promote dental cavities. Saccharin has a long shelf life but a slightly bitter aftertaste. It is not metabolized in the human digestive system; is excreted rapidly in the urine and does not accumulate in the body.
