Saccharin is an artificial sweetener with effectively no food energy which is about 300–400 times as sweet as sucrose or table sugar, but has a bitter or metallic aftertaste, especially at high concentrations. It is used to sweeten products such as drinks, candies, cookies, medicines, and toothpaste. Saccharin derives its name from the word "saccharine", meaning "sugary". The word saccharine is used metaphorically, often in a derogative sense, to describe something "unpleasantly over-polite" or "overly sweet" (Wikipedia).
