Recipe Booklet, "Calorie Saving Recipes with Sucaryl," 1955

Summary

Artificial sweeteners provide dieters and people with diabetes or other metabolic disorders with a sugar substitute. Sucaryl, a cyclamate-based sweetener, was first marketed to the public in 1951. Though Sucaryl promised sweet-tasting foods without adding calories, links to possible increased cancers risks spurred the Food and Drug Administration to ban cyclamates in 1969.
