The CEO and co-owner of Sugar Foods, which made the artificial sweetener Sweet'N Low a ubiquitous staple, has committed suicide.

Donald Tober, 89, is said to have jumped from the window of his plush Park Avenue apartment in Manhattan early Friday morning, according to the New York Post.

Investigators believe he leapt to his death around 5AM before his body was found in the courtyard of the luxury complex -located on the Upper East Side - several hours later.

Sources told the Post he was struggling with Parkinson's disease.

Sugar Food's best known product was the sweetener, Sweet'N Low, with its distinct pink packets that appeared in diners, restaurants and kitchens across the country.

According to Restaurant News magazine, 80 percent of food establishments used Sweet'N Low by the mid-1990s.


Saccharine (often mis-typed as saccharine with an E) is an artificial sweetener that has been around for over 100 years, since 1879. Saccharin is 300 times sweeter than sugar. It was banned as early as 1911, but the bans were lifted during the sugar rationing of WWI.

Nowadays, saccharin is best known in the pink packet form of Sweet 'N Low.
As a result, the FDA required that any saccharin products carry a warning label about cancer.

The actual warning reads:

"Use of this product may be hazardous to your health. This product contains saccharin, which has been determined to cause cancer in laboratory animals."

Note that this warning was removed in 2000 by the US Congress (not by the FDA) after heavy lobbying by the saccharin industry :)
Pregnant mothers are especially cautioned to stay away from saccharin, because even small usage of saccharin could overwhelm the developing fetus' defenses and cause damage to the developing bladder area.
