Erythritol May Be the Best and Safest Low-Cal Sweetener Ever

Published:  10/01/2016

Finally, a sweetener that I can enthusiastically recommend!

Erythritol, a polyol (sugar alcohol), is a natural, zero-calorie sweetener that is safe, doesn't cause side effects and tastes almost exactly like sugar without the calories.

This is the product I order and use for me and my family.


Whole Earth Sweetener Company, Nature Sweet Stevia & Monk Fruit Packets, 40 Count (Pack of 12) found on Amazon.

Benefits of Erythritol
·       Zero calorie: Erythritol has 0 calories per gram.

·       High digestive tolerance: foods containing substantial amounts of erythritol are very unlikely to cause gaseous and laxation side effects like other sugar alcohols can.

·       Safe for people with diabetes: because it does not raise blood glucose or insulin levels It When people are given erythritol, there is no change in blood sugar or insulin levels. There is also no effect on cholesterol, triglycerides or other biomarkers (1).

·       Does not cause tooth decay: Does not contribute to the formation of dental caries.

·       Our bodies don't break it down: It goes pretty much unchanged through our system, without causing any of the harmful metabolic effects of sugar.

·       Clean sweet taste with no aftertaste.

·       Erythritol The safety of erythritol is proven by a number of safety studies, including short and long term feeding, multi-generation reproduction and teratology studies.  The WHO/FAO Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) reviewed the safety of erythritol in 1999 and put it in the highest safety category possible. It is approved for use in foods in more than 50 countries, including the European Union. Based on available studies erythritol does not show evidence of toxicity.
