Erythritol Organic- 100 Grams
Erythritol belongs to a class of compounds called sugar alcohols .
Food producers use many sugar alcohols such as xylitol, sorbitol, and maltitol.
Most of them function as low calorie sweeteners in sugar-free or low sugar products.
Most sugar alcohols are found in small amounts in nature, especially in fruits and vegetables.
Because of the way these molecules are structured, they can stimulate the sweet taste receptors on your tongue.
Erythritol appears to be quite different from the other sugar alcohols.
To begin with, it contains many fewer calories:
- Table sugar: 4 calories per gram
- Xylitol: 2.4 calories per gram
- Erythritol: 0.24 calories per gram
With only 6% of the calories of sugar, it still contains 70% of the sweetness.
In large-scale production, erythritol is created when a type of yeast ferments glucose from corn or wheat starch. The final product looks like powdery white crystals.
Our erythritol sweetener is 70% as sweet as sugar and the flavor is very similar. Unlike most alternative sweeteners, there is no bitter or chemical aftertaste. While sugar is a 68 on the glycemic index (GI) scale, erythritol is a 0! High glycemic foods like sugar cause blood sugar spikes, leading to more fat storage and hunger crashes
Humans don’t have the enzymes needed to break down erythritol.
It’s absorbed into the bloodstream and then excreted unchanged in the urine.
In animal studies, erythritol was found to inhibit the increase of blood sugar and insulin levels
For those who are overweight or have diabetes or other issues related to the metabolic syndrome, erythritol is an excellent alternative to sugar.
Substitute for sugar - Our erythritol is about 70% as sweet as table sugar. You may substitute erythritol 1:1 in recipes in place of sugar.
Suitable for diabetics - Erythritol does not raise blood sugar levels, and is therefore suitable for those who have diabetes.
Zero calorie - Want to lower the calorie count of your recipes? Just use erythritol instead of sugar to cut down the calorie count.
High digestive tolerance - Studies have shown that erythritol is very easy on the digestion.
Antioxidant - Erythritol may help fight off free radicals in your body that accelerate the aging process.
