Neotame is an artificial sweetener made by NutraSweet that is between 7,000 and 13,000 times sweeter than sucrose (table sugar). It is moderately heat-stable, extremely potent, rapidly metabolized, completely eliminated, and does not appear to accumulate in the body. Often used to intensify other high intensity sweetener blends.

Neotame is N-[N-(3,3-dimethylbutyl)-L-aspartyl]-L-phenylalanine 1-methly ester. It is a white, crystalline powder that has a sweet taste. It is sparingly soluble in water and very soluble in alcohol. The pH of a 0.5% solution is between 5.0 and 7.0. Neotame has a clean, sweet taste that is approximately 8,000- 14,000 times sweeter than sugar.
