Erythritol is a super low carb sweetener that comes from fermented fruits and sometimes corn husks. It is about 60–80% as sweet as sucrose (sugar) but is nearly non-caloric. And, unlike sugar, it does not cause spikes in blood sugar, because the body doesn’t break it down like sugar, making it a great option for those doing low carb, keto diet, or who are seeking an alternative sweetener.
Other sugar alcohols you might know include sorbitol and xylitol. Like erythritol, it supports dental health because it can help suppress the growth of bad bacteria and acids, two things that can lead to tooth decay—that’ll give you something to smile about! Erythritol, however, has a much lower effect on the digestive system and does not cause nearly the gastrointestinal gas, etc that other sugar alcohols are known for.
We use only NON-GMO Erythritol in our baking. We are happy to offer it to you for your baking and other sweet desires!
