Sweet'n Low (trademarked as Sweet'N Low) is a brand of artificial sweetener from granulated Saccharin, dextrose and cream of tartar. It was invented and first introduced in 1957 by Benjamin Eisenstadt and his son, Marvin Eisenstadt. The elder Eisenstadt had earlier invented the sugar packet, but neglected to patent it, and artificial sweetener packets were an outgrowth of that business. The two were the first to market and distribute the sugar substitute in powdered form. Their distribution company, Cumberland Packing Corporation, still controls the product.

The name "Sweet'n Low" itself derives from an 1863 song by Sir Joseph Barnby, which took both its title and lyrics from an Alfred Lord Tennyson poem, entitled The Princess: Sweet and Low.

Sweet'n Low is manufactured and distributed in the United States and United Kingdom. Other products by the makers of Sweet'n Low include Sugar in the Raw and Stevia in the Raw.
