Saccharin is primarily produced in two types i.e. soluble and insoluble saccharin. The soluble saccharin (in water) is called Sodium Saccharin whereas insoluble saccharin is called Insoluble Saccharin. Calcium Saccharin, is also sometimes used, especially by people restricting their dietary sodium intake. Calcium Saccharin is a sweeteners that has been used in food for many years. In cosmetics and personal care products, Calcium Saccharin is used as flavoring agents in the formulation of dental products, mouthwashes and lipstick.

Calcium Saccharin occurs as white crystals or as a white, crystalline powder. One gram is soluble in 1.5 mL of water.
Function: Nonnutritive sweetener.

A. Dissolve about 100 mg of sample in 5 mL of a 1:20 solution of sodium hydroxide, evaporate to dryness, and gently fuse the residue over a small flame until ammonia no longer evolves. After the residue has cooled, dissolve it in 20 mL of water, neutralize the solution with 2.7 hydrochloric acid, and filter. Add 1 drop of ferric chloride to the filtrate. A violet color appears.
B. Mix 20 mg of sample with 40 mg of resorcinol, cautiously add 10 drops of sulfuric acid, and heat the mixture in a liquid bath at 200C for 3 min. After cooling, add 10 mL of water and an excess of 1 sodium hydroxide. A fluorescent green liquid results.
C. A1:10 aqueous solution gives positive tests for Calcium.
D. Add 1 mL of hydrochloric acid to 10 mL of a 1:10 aqueous solution. A crystalline precipitate of saccharin forms. Wash the precipitate well with cold water, and dry at 105C for 2 h. The saccharin thus obtained melts between 226C and 230°C.
