Dear AB
There are no harmful substances in Canderel which is made from an amino acid called phenylalanine which you get from proteins that we eat every day. There is a small group of individuals who suffer from a genetic condition called phenylketonuria who cannot metabolise phenylalanine. But the rest of us can use this sweetener without any problems.
