Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of acesulfame potassium in hot pot soup bases, various sauces, and sauce packs that come with instant noodle products.
Acesulfame potassium is already permitted as a sweetener in a variety of foods.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of acesulfame potassium for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has extended the use of acesulfame potassium as described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Sweeteners, effective June 20, 2022.
