cyclamate

An artificial sweetener 30 times sweeter than sucrose, but with no calorific value. The sodium salt of cyclohexylsulphamic acid. Cyclamate was banned in the UK and USA in 1969 after rats fed the additive throughout their lives developed bladder tumours. In 1995, however, a European panel of experts agreed that the sweetener might safely be used in limited dosage and set a daily intake threshold. Also known as Sucaryl.
