This post was requested by one of our dear readers. A lot of people in India who use artificial sweetener trust ‘Equal’ brand a lot. Let’s take a critic approach to reviewing Equal products. I have not used Equal sweeteners , so I am picking piccys and ingredient list from their website for analysis. I don’t think this post requires detailed description, you will know why when you finish reading !
Equal has 4 products – Equal Orginial, Equal Sucralose, Equal Saccharine and Equal Next.
Equal Original Ingredient List and Nutrition Facts
Do you notice Aspartame in the pic below ? Read here to know how dangerous Aspartame is !
Equal Sucralose Ingredient List and Nutrition Facts
Emphasis on Splenda and Sucalose ! Read here to know if splenda/sucarlose is good for us.
Equal Saccharin Ingredient List and Nutrition Facts
Saccharin is sulfa-based sweetener withprimary ingredient – benzoic sulfimide. The side effects of saccharin include nausea, diarrhea, skin problems or other allergy-related symptoms.
Concerns: The early research of saccharin showed that this sweetener caused bladder cancer in rats. Scary right ?
This is the reason that saccharin has been the most investigated of all artificial sweeteners. No connection between saccharin and bladder cancer in humans has been proven till date.
Equal Next Ingredient List and Nutrition Facts
Equal Next contains both aspartame and saccharin both; two villains better than one 😛
In my honest opinion, all these Equal products are unsafe to use. I will review Sugar Free Gold and Stevia in the coming posts for you to choose a sweetener wisely.
Which Equal product do you use ? Let us know !
