0 Calorie Sweetener Equal Products Review

Heya everyone,

This post was requested by one of our dear readers. A lot of people in India who use artificial sweeteners trust the ‘Equal’ brand a lot. Let us take a critic approach to review Equal products. I have not used Equal sweeteners, so I am picking pictures and ingredient list from their website for analysis. I don’t think this post requires a detailed description, you will know why when you finish reading!

Equal as a brand has 4 products named as –

  • Original,
  • Sucralose,
  • Saccharine,
  • Next.

Ingredient List and Nutrition Facts

Saccharin is a sulfa-based sweetener with the primary 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 to date.

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.


  1. Once one of my diabetic relative got the sugar free …i told him to avoid it but he still chose to go ahead with it and his blood sugar level shot up with in no time.

  2. Minisha, I have seen people using them entire lifetime. N even diabetic patients use them for eternity. Strange !

  3. Hey Tarun,

    I would like to know what can be used in such scenario? Stevia – is it good? I have been readin in IWB blog quite sometime.
    And good thing is this blog is so motivating that without being irregular i have been going for walk constantly everyday for an hour to 70 min. I dont complain any more. 🙂
    I would really like to know what sweetner can be used other than jaggery and honey.
    My boss once told be that all these artificial sweetners (being cancerous) is no where proved scientifically. Well I was not very sure. I would really like to know
