So, I revived again my habit of wandering around Wikipedia for 30 minutes a day. Here’s today enlightenment:
- Aspartame is 200 times sweeter than sugar (sucrose), Aspartame is often used as artificial sweetener. Causes no tooth decay, according to Wikipedia.
- See the “3D” in the top right? You can actually see the 3D model of it! Google-searching a compund name now shows up a window in the search result, in which you can view the 3D model of the compound.
- Aspartame, like several other great inventions like microwave, was discovered by accident when testing anti-ulcer drug.
- Ajinomoto, the world’s largest aspartame manufacturer, is also the manufacturer of the legendary chicken-lily bowl found nationwide in Indonesia.
