According to the Ace-K website, it is used in more than 5,000 products around the world and is approximately 200 times sweeter than regular table sugar.

Also, for diabetics, blood sugar spikes from many sweet foods, such as sodas or pastries, can be dangerous. A sweetener such as Ace-K will not have the same effect as nutritive sweeteners, so is considered safe for consumption for those with diabetes.
