Posted Date:

From: Environmental Leader

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has removed saccharin and its salts from its list of hazardous substances.

Saccharin is found in diet soft drinks, chewing gum and juice. It was also used in early sugar substitutes, as it is approximately 300 times sweeter than sucrose or sugar.

Saccharin was considered a potential carcinogenic substance in the 1980s, but in the late 1990s, the National Toxicology Program and the International Agency for Research on Cancer re-evaluated the available scientific information on saccharin and its salts and concluded that it is not a potential human carcinogen.
