Aspartame (Apt), Acesulfame-K (Ace-K) and Saccharin (Sac), low-calorie, high-potency artificial sweeteners are currently used in carbonated beverages, dietary food and drinks. Their increased application in food and drink products has given a new impetus to develop fast and accurate methods for their determination. Absorption spectra of Apt, Ace-K and Sac strongly overlap. Therefore a direct determination of these analytes in ternary mixture is impossible without a separation step.
