Aspartame HDP

DESCRIPTION

Aspartame is N-L-alpha-Aspartyl-L-phenylalanine-1-methyl ester. It is a white, crystalline powder or granular material that has a sweet taste. It is sparingly soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohol. The pH of a 0.8% solution is between 4.5 and 6.0. SinoSweet™ Aspartame has a clean, sweet taste that is approximately 180 to 200 times sweeter than sugar.
