[IP] sucralose

I've found more information on this topic. 

The following announcement is dated April 1, 1998.
FDA Approves High-Intensity Sweetener Sucralose The Food and Drug
Administration today announced its approval of a new sweetener, sucralose,
for use in a wide variety of food products. 

Sucralose is manufactured by McNeil Specialty Products, a subsidiary of
Johnson & Johnson, of New Brunswick, N.J. 

The non-nutritive, high-intensity sweetener is made from a process that
begins with sucrose. It is a free-flowing, water soluble, white crystalline
powder that on average is about 600 times sweeter than sugar. 

Sucralose is being approved for use in baked goods, baking mixes,
non-alcoholic beverages, chewing gum, coffee and tea products, confections
and frostings, fats and oils, frozen dairy desserts and mixes, fruit and
water ices, gelatins, puddings and fillings, jams and jellies, milk
products, processed fruits and fruit juices, sugar substitutes, sweet
sauces, toppings and syrups. It can also be used as a "table-top
sweetener"-added directly to foods by consumers.

The soft drink that currently contains sucralose is RC Cola... however, its
availability may vary from place to place, depending on their distribution
