One tough cookie

Friday - - Mind Games -

Ques­tion In 1975 a young grad­u­ate was re­search­ing in­sec­ti­cide com­pounds at a Lon­don col­lege. One com­pound seemed promis­ing and the stu­dent’s ad­vi­sor told him to test the chemical, but he mis­un­der­stood and tasted it in­stead! He re­ported back that it tasted in­cred­i­bly sweet. This gave re­searchers the idea of turn­ing this com­pound into a su­gar sub­sti­tute. What do we know it as to­day?
