CHICAGO -- A new low-calorie, all-natural sugar blend is hitting the market in a single-serve packet. Called "Pure Via Turbinado Raw Cane Sugar and Stevia Blend," it combines extract of the stevia plant with turbinado raw cane sugar with only five calories per serving.
The new sweetener is made by Whole Earth Sweetener Co., a subsidiary of Merisant Co., which manufactures Equal and other sugar substitutes. Their new packet product is available in 1,000-ct. cases.
The new sweetener looks and tastes like raw cane sugar, the manufacturer claims. And it's kosher and suitable for individuals adhering to gluten-free diets.
