Dulcin - brief summary
Dulcin is an artificial sweetener about 250 times sweeter than sugar, discovered in 1883 by the Polish chemist JÃ³zef (Joseph) Berlinerblau (27 August 1859 â€“ 1935). It was first mass-produced about seven years later. Although it was discovered only five years after saccharin, it never enjoyed the latter compound's market success. Nevertheless, it was an important sweetener of the early 20th century and had an advantage over saccharin in that it did not possess a bitter aftertaste. Dulcin is also known by the names sucrol and valzin.
