E952

The New Sugar Busters by H. Leighton Steward, Morrison Bethea and Sam Andrews A-Z Guide To Food Additive (Paperback)

E952 is a food additive approved by the EU (European Union). It is used as a synthetic sweetener in food and drink products.

The common name for E952 is cyclamic acid.

E952 is approximately x30 sweeter than natural sugar. It is remains stable at high temperatures, which enables it to be used in cooked foods such as bakery products.

Due to links between the use of E952 and the incidence of some cancers, E952 has been banned in the United States. It is also known to cause migraines and adverse skin conditions, such as pruritis.

Examples of food and drink products that sometimes include E952:

  • bakery products
  • diet foods
