Get the sweetness without all the calories of sugar, with new, naturally sweetened Equal Stevia.
Equal is a household name in New Zealand when it comes to reduced kilojoule sweeteners.
Now there’s a new product in the range – Equal Stevia – a naturally sweetened, reduced kilojoule sweetener.
Equal Stevia is sweetened with extracts from the Stevia plant and can be used in place of sugar to sweeten hot drinks – but without all the calories. One Equal Stevia tablet contains just 1.2kj and is equivalent in sweetness to one teaspoon of sugar which contains 70kj. That’s a saving of 98%!
The Stevia plant is native to South America and its sweetness comes from components found in its leaves. It contains no calories or carbohydrates and has been used as a natural sweetener for hundreds of years. More recently Stevia has gained popularity around the world as a natural sweetening ingredient.
Equal has taken the natural sweetener found in Stevia and blended it with select ingredients to create a sweetener with a clean, crisp taste with a reduced kilojoule content.
You can find Equal Stevia tablets at selected supermarkets nationwide, in a handy dispenser pack for on-the-go convenience.
