Erythritol is a natural sweetener, which can be found in different kinds of fruit, vegetables and even the human body itself!
This natural sugar is 70% as sweet as regular sugar. However, 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 very well. Therefore, when you’re struggling with digestive problems caused by other sugars, erythritol is highly recommended. Some sugars are slow to be absorbed by the gut and can cause irritation as a result. Erythritol, on the other hand, is quickly absorbed and eliminated from the body with 24 hours of consumption through urine.
Erythritol can be used to mask the typical stevia aftertaste. It also works well with xylitol, to get a smoother taste.
