The key, raw material we use for saccharin is self-produced OTSA (ortho toluenesulfonamide). High-quality OTSA is crucial for producing high-quality saccharin. By sourcing our raw materials internally, we minimise external threats to our supply chain. We are a manufacturer that ensures products are not tied to raw material suppliers in China or India.

Saccharin contains a maximum of 15% water. This is why occasional clumping may occur.
However, these clumps are easily breakable by hand and primarily form during transportation and storage.
Clumping does not result from any chemical defects or impurities in the product.

For free samples, up to a maximum of 100g per product can be provided,
and they will be shipped via DHL. The estimated delivery time is approximately 2 weeks.

The mesh size 10-20 is commonly used for free-flowing addition to beverages and food products.
The mesh size 40-80 possesses finer particles and is frequently utilized in pharmaceutical products. However, due to variations in production processes and methods among end-users, it is recommended to use the product according to its specific characteristics.
Applications are not strictly limited to specific mesh sizes.

We are the world’s only saccharin manufacturer that follows a vertically integrated approach, producing our raw material (OTSA) and ensuring rigorous quality control. We are also the only manufacturer that uses the original Remsen and Fahlberg process to manufacture saccharin. Our saccharin is the world’s highest quality, containing none of the impurities regularly found in saccharin manufactured by alternative methods. Our philosophy encompasses not only quality but also considerations for safety, health, hygiene, and environmental impact. We strive for sustainability in all aspects of our operations.
