Non-nutritive sweeteners is a term for a class of food additives that mimic the effect of sugar, honey or corn syrup in taste, but usually have less food energy (calories). Some sugar-substitutes are natural, others are synthetic. Those that are not natural are, in general, referred to as artificial sweeteners.
