Neotame is approved by WHO, FDA and FSSAI India for use in food as a non-nutritive sweetener. Neotame is approximately 7,000 to 13,000 times sweeter than table sugar.
FDA approved neotame for use as a general purpose sweetener and flavor enhancer in foods (except in meat and poultry), under certain conditions of use, in 2002. It is heat stable, meaning that it stays sweet even when used at high temperatures during baking, making it suitable as a sugar substitute in baked goods.
In determining the safety of neotame, FDA reviewed data from more than 113 animal and human studies designed to identify possible toxic effects, including effects on the immune system, reproductive system, and nervous system.
