Description

Saccharin is an artificial sweetener known as Sweet 'n Low. It can be found in beverages, candies, toothpaste and some medicines. The Food and Drug Administration believes saccharin to be safe for consumption for the general public, but it is questioned whether it is safe for pregnant women. Studies have shown that saccharin can cross the placenta, and, because of slow fetal clearance, may remain in fetal tissue. Updated: 10.16.17
