Equal Tablet consists of dextrose and maltodextrin that act as bulking agents and make it easy to measure and pour. It also consists of sweetening components such as Aspartame and Acesulfame Potasium. Out of the two sweeteners, Aspartame breaks down into amino acids, aspartic acid and phenyline and the other is a calorie less sweetener that does not get metabolized by the body and gets excreted out of our system. Equal tablets can not only be used by diabetes and sugar patients but also can be used as a replacement for sugar as a whole in the cooking process. These tablets can be used for a longer period of time as they have indefinite shelf life.
