Saccharin-Hydroquinone Mixture

Saccharin is a non-caloric, non-nutritive artificial sweetener. Although saccharin is popular as a tabletop sweetener, it is also found in baked goods, chewing gum, candy, salad dressings, cosmetics, and various pharmaceuticals.

Hydroquinone is a light and air-sensitive compound with antioxidant properties, often incorporated into cooking-grade oils and fats as a preserving agent.
