Sugar substitutes are food additives that can imitate the effect of Sugar in taste, though they usually have less food energy/calories. The Sugar substitutes have prospered on synthetic alternatives for sucrose, such as aspartame, saccharin, and acesulfame potassium. Sugar substitutes' popularity has surged due to rising awareness of the energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. The Sugar substitute industry's growth is majorly driven by the increase in demand for natural sweeteners and increased health consciousness among consumers, backed by the rise in consumer inclination toward natural products.
