New Tests Detects Artificial Sweetner Traces In Water
The sweeteners were found in waters downstream of the treatment plants where scientists Marco Scheurer, Heinz-Jürgen Brauch and Frank Thomas Lange collected water samples. Their findings were published online this week in Springer’s journal " Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry."
Through the use of this new method, the researchers were able to look for seven different artificial sweeteners – cyclamate, acesulfame, saccharin, aspartame, neotame, neohesperidin dihydrochalcone and sucralose – simultaneously. Until now, only sucralose has been detected in aquatic environments.
