6-Methyl-1,2,3-oxathiazin-4(3H)-one 2,2-dioxide potassium salt
270（g/L at 20 °C）
Acesulfame K was discovered accidentally in 1967 by German chemist Karl Clauss at Hoechst AG (now Nutrinova). In chemical structure, acesulfame potassium is the potassium salt of 6-methyl-1,2,3-oxathiazine-4(3H)-one 2,2-dioxide. It is a white crystalline powder with molecular formula C4H4KNO4S and a molecular weight of 201.24 g/mol. It is 200 times sweeter than sucrose (common sugar), as sweet as aspartame, about 2/3 as sweet as saccharin, and 1/3 as sweet as sucralose. Like saccharin, it has a slightly bitter aftertaste, especially at high concentrations.
It can be used for flavoring agent for beverage and solid beverage, candy, jam, baking food and dining (milk, soy milk, coffee, soup).
