: ''For the Filipino band, see Sugarfree (band).'' A sugar substitute is a food additive that duplicates the effect of sugar in taste, usually with less food energy. Some sugar substitutes are natural and some are synthetic. Those that are not natural are, in general, called artificial sweeteners. An important class of sugar substitutes is known as ''high-intensity sweeteners''. These are compounds with many times the sweetness of sucrose, common table sugar.
