The Scientific Committee on Food (SCF) of the European Commission established a full ADI of 0-5 mg/kg bw for sodium saccharin in 1995 and reconfirmed its safety.
Saccharin and its sodium, potassium and calcium salts were first evaluated by the Scientific Committee for Food (SCF) in 1977 when a temporary ADI of 0-2.5 mg/kg bw was allocated. In response to further experimental information and the extensive epidemiological data with no evidence of any relationship between saccharin intake and bladder cancer in humans, the Committee concluded that it is appropriate to set a full ADI for sodium saccharin of 0-5 mg/kg bw.
