The main sweetening ingredient in Equal® Naturals Zero Calorie Sweetener is stevia leaf extract. It is blended with erythritol and natural flavors.

Stevia leaf extract, a high purity extract from the stevia plant, is a great-tasting, zero calorie sweetener that is more than 200 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia leaf extract is obtained by steeping stevia leaves in hot water to extract the sweet parts of the leaf and then processing to separate, purify and filter the extract.

Yes. Scientific research and a long history of safe use show that stevia leaf extract can be safely consumed. Beginning in 2008 in the U.S., stevia leaf extracts have been given Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status. The FDA has reviewed the published research, listened to expert opinions and, based on the evidence, has no objections to ingredient maker determinations that stevia leaf extract is safe for use in foods and beverages.

No, the ingredients in Equal® Naturals are not organic. However, they are produced without bioengineering (non-GMO).

The processed erythritol used in Equal® Naturals is obtained through a fermentation process without bioengineering and is similar to the erythritol that occurs naturally in fruits such as pears, melons and grapes, as well as foods such as mushrooms and fermentation-derived foods such as wine, soy sauce and cheese. Its caloric value of zero calories per gram and high digestive tolerance distinguishes it from some other polyols (sugar alcohols).

The FDA has given erythritol GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe).

Erythritol is generally very well tolerated and does not cause the gastrointestinal distress associated with other sugar alcohols.
