Sodium saccharin is an artificial sweetener with effectively no food energy. It is about 300–400 times as sweet as sucrose but has a bitter or metallic aftertaste, especially at high concentrations. Saccharin is used to sweeten products such as drinks, candies, cookies, and medicines.

Sodium saccharin is extremely sweet, so small amounts are able to make toothpaste palatable–better tasting. Still, sodium saccharin is not linked to any benefits for oral health, so its only function in a toothpaste is to improve flavor.
Saccharin sodium dihydrate is the sodium dihydrate form of saccharin, which belongs to the family of aromatic homomonocyclic compounds. It is an artificial sweetener that is hundreds times as sweet as sucrose. It is mainly used as a food additive to sweeten many products such as drinks, candies, cookies, and medicine.
