Summary

The Scientific Committee on Food (SCF) of the European Commission confirmed that cyclamic acid and its salts are safe and established a full ADI of 0-7 mg/kg bw, expressed as cyclamic acid, for cyclamic acid and its sodium and calcium salts in 2000.

Cyclamic acid and its sodium and calcium salts are intense sweeteners, with a sweetness approximately 30 times that of sucrose, and are permitted for use in several low-calorie foods and beverages.
