Neotame CAS 65450-17-9

Neotame CAS 65450-17-9

Neotame is an artificial sweetener made by that is between 7,000 and 13,000 times sweeter than (table sugar). In the European Union it is kn Neotame Powder own by the E961. Neotame is moderately heat stable and extremely potent. Neotame is rapidly metabolized and completely eliminated and does not accumulate in the body.

Functions and Applications

Neotame is an artificial sweetener made by that is between 7,000 and 13,000 times sweeter than (table sugar). In the European Union it is kn Neotame Powder own by the E961. Neotame is moderately heat stable 

and extremely potent. Neotame is rapidly metabolized and completely eliminated and does not accumulate in the body.

It is chemically similar to the artificial sweetener , but is used at vastly lower levels and is more stable. Chemically, it has a 3,3dimethylbutyl group attached to the amino group of the portion of the molecule. Peptidases, which would typically break the peptide bond between the aspartic acid and phenylalanine moieties, are effectively blocked by the presence of the 3,3dimethylbutyl moiety, 

thus reducing the production of ,thereby making its consumption by those who suffer from safe.
