Neotame powder, E961, Cas no.165450-17-9, low calorie artificial food sweetener, manufacturing process from chemical synthesis, Aspartame and 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde as the raw material. It is a sugar substitute that is 7,000 to 13,000 times sweeter than regular table sugar. Neotame is heat-stable. As Neotame is heat stable it can be used in both cooking and baking applications. Neotame has been approved for use in various processed foods, including pudding and gelatin mixes, canned fruits, fruit juices, jams, jellies, and syrup. It may also be found in baked goods, frozen desserts, soft drinks and chewing gum. Typically, many of these products are labeled as being sugar-less or sugar-free. As a professional Neotame supplier, we supply Neotame FCC/USP/BP/EP feed, food grade and pharma grade Neotame.

Upstream: Prices of upstream aspartame, 3,3-dimethylbutyraldehyde, methanol are stable and supply is stable. Production capacity of the Neotame manufacturers didn’t change much.
Downstream: Downstream demand is pretty stable.
Forecast: As Aspartame price is increasing, Neotame price is also going up.
- 5.1. Storage: Kept in dry, cool, and shaded place with original packaging, avoid moisture, store at room temperature.
- 5.2. Handling precaution: Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust.
Over 100 scientific studies were done to establish the safety of neotame. A comprehensive battery of safety studies in animals and humans demonstrated no adverse effects from neotame.
The FDA’s approval process for a food ingredient, classified as a food additive, involves an exhaustive analysis of scientific data to satisfy safety requirements. This rigorous process and extensive research conclusively confirms the safety of neotame for use by the general population.
