E950 is a food additive approved by the EU (European It is used as a synthetic sweetener in food and drink products.

The common name for E950 is acesulfame-K. It may also be referred to as ace K.

E950 can be up to x200 sweeter than natural sugar. It is stable at very high temperatures and so used in many bakery products. It is also often used in conjunction with aspartame. E950 is not metabolised in the body but just excreted in the urine, hence it passes on no calories.

Some sources mention suspicions that E950 may be carcinogenic but we didn't find any articles citing evidence for this.

Examples of food/drink products that may include E950:

  • chewing gum
  • yogurt
  • alcoholic drinks
  • syrup
