There will soon be another artificial sweetener to use in your coffee, tea and baked goods. Chicago-based NutraSweet is expected to launch its second artificial sweetener next month. The new sweetener will come in a pink packet to take on rival Sweet 'n Low.

Unlike Sweet 'n Low, NutraSweet's pink sweetener will not contain saccharin. It will be made from two artificial sweeteners including neotame.

And later this year, NutraSweet is expected to launch another sweetener to take on Splenda.
