Calorie-free, natural sweetener
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol found in its natural form in nature. It has 60-70% sweetening effect of cane sugar with a similar look, yet cannot be caramelized. Approx. 90% is absorbed in the small intestine, yet without providing any energy as it is not used by the body and is emptied through the kidneys. In the case of a healthy intestinal system, it causes no bloating.
It has no unusual taste.
It contains an insignificant amount of calories and doesn’t raise the blood sugar levels and has no effect on insulin production, which makes it suitable for people with diabetes, insulin resistance or those seeking to lose weight. It poses no risk of tooth decay.
An additional advantage is that it can be superbly used in the case of foodstuffs in which the volume and not just the sweetness is an important factor (for example, in sponge cakes).
It can rarely cause unpleasant gastric symptoms, including bloating and excess gas. When used in liquids or excessive amounts, this effect can be heightened.
It loses its sweet flavor at temperatures over 160 degrees Celsius.
It’s not the best option for baking as it degrades and loses its sweetness over 160 degrees Celsius. It should be use sparingly to sweeten liquids.
It can be used in larger amounts to achieve the necessary level of sweetness (approx. one-and-a-half parts).
