Table Sugar in Japan

As part of the  SugarSpiritLogoSquare1Sugar Spirit project, I am starting to be more aware of types of sugar in other countries. When traveling to Japan recently, I picked up a couple of packets of sugar. 

I am not sure what the "Sugar Free Sweetener" in the pink envelope is. The blue packet is called "Jogger's Step One." The back of the packet says it's free from saccharin and sodium. The sweetener is "extracted and refined from a plant of chrsanthemum species."

We just returned from a trip to Japan and also used the Jogger's One Step sweetener. It has a pleasant taste with very little after taste. We prefer the taste to that of Stevia products.


The pink packet is Aji-no-moto's "ParuSwet", which is aspartame powder.
