Erythritol is a natural sweetener, which can be found in different kinds of fruit, vegetables and even the human body itself! It contains no calories. Although officially counted as carbs, Erythritol is not digested and excreted by your body. With a glycemic index of zero, it doesn’t increase your blood sugar at all! This makes the product safe for use for diabetics. Erythritol is tolerated extremely well. Therefore, when you’re struggling with digestive problems caused by other sugars, erythritol is highly recommended. As other sugars are often absorbed by the guts, they can cause irritations. Erythritol, on the contrary, is absorbed into the blood very fast and gets eliminated from the body through urine within 24 hours.
Stevia is a natural sweetener derived from the stevia plant. Steviol glycosides are the isolated compounds responsible for the sweet flavour of the stevia plant. A stevia extract contains the same stevia glycosides as they are found in the plant itself.
This sweetener is often used instead of sugars or artificial sweeteners. Stevia can have a typical aftertaste for many people, which can interfere with the flavour when used in baked goods or sweets. By combining erythritol and stevia in the same formula, the typical stevia aftertaste has been somewhat neutralised.
Erylite Stevia can be used to replace table sugar at a 1:1 ratio in baked goods to create an equally sweet flavour.
