Natural or synthetic substance, a sweetener has a sweet flavour which allows to replace traditional sugar in drinks or preparations. We distinguish two sweetener families: low-calorie sweeteners as sorbitol or xylitol and intense sweeteners as aspartame or saccharin that have a higher sweetening power. Calorie-free, sweeteners are particularly interesting to consume in replacement of sugar as a part of a slimming diet.
