The food industry uses sodium saccharine as an additive in various products.
Sodium saccharine is used as a non-nutritive sweetener and stabilizer in a variety of food and drinks.
Bakeries use sodium saccharin to sweeten baked goods, breads, cookies and muffins.
Artificially sweetened diet drinks and sodas use sodium saccharin since it dissolves readily in water.
