DDC Technology Day | Effect of Sodium Cyclamate on the Determination of Saccharin Sodium in Feed Sweeteners
Abstract: In order to evaluate the effect of cyclamate on the content of sodium saccharin in sweeteners, five different sweetener formulations were added. The addition of cyclamate was 0, 2.5%, 5%, 10% and 20%, using perchloric acid non-aqueous titration method to detect sodium saccharin content, using 0.1N perchloric acid as a standard solution. It was found that as the content of cyclamate increased, the sodium content of saccharin was also increased.
Key words: sodium cyclamate; sodium saccharin; perchloric acid; titration
The chemical name of cyclamate is sodium cyclamate, which usually means that the sodium or calcium salt of cyclamic sulfamic acid is a commonly used sweetener, and the sweetness is generally considered to be 30 to 40 times that of sucrose . In China, the amount of cyclamate added to food is also strictly limited. The maximum use of cyclamate in beverages is 0.25 mg·kg-1. This experiment analyzes the change of sodium saccharin content after adding different cyclamate, in order to provide a basis for accurate detection of sodium saccharin content in feed sweetener.
The sweetness of cyclamate is pure and has become a highly consumed artificial sweetener in the United States. It is recognized as a safe substance. In September 1982, Abbott Laboratories and the Energy Control Committee based on a large number of experimental facts. The research results prove the safety of cyclamate. Many international organizations have also issued a lot of comments to make it clear that cyclamate is a safe substance, but the FDA has not yet solved this problem. Therefore, many countries (including China) continue to recognize the sweetener status of cyclamate and allow the use of cyclamate.
