Sugar alcohols- Equal

How many grams of sugar are there/gram of sugar alcohol (product made from equal)? If a product has 20 grams of sugar alcohol, does this mean there is no sugar?

Re: Sugar alcohols- Equal

I'm not aware of any sugar alcohols in Equal. Equal has aspartame, maltodextrin, and dextrose I believe.

Sugar alcohols are not the same as sugar. They have far less calories than normal sugars and some arguably don't even metabolize into sugars.

Re: Sugar alcohols- Equal

Hi sometimes a person can contact the company for a question like this and they might nicely research or ask around for a person if the answer is not already known and call back if info is left with them. Have nice day!
