Sodium Saccharin, widely work as a food sweeteners, the chemical formula of sodium saccharine is C6H4SO2NNaCO, white transparent with aromatic flavor diamond crystal. The sweetness is 200-700 times of sucrose, and the threshold of sweetness is about 0.00048%. It is easy to dissolve in water, slightly soluble in ethanol, melting point 226-228 ° C. sodium saccharin will not decompose after entering the human body, it will not supply heat energy and has no nutritional value. It can be discharged with urine in about half an hour, and can be discharged in 24 hours.
