Erythritol: A Natural and Sugar Free Sweetener


I’ve been doing some extra homework on sugar free sweeteners, and found some great articles on Erythritol! It’s naturally occuring in fruit, and…

-It contains almost no calories.
-It has 70% of the sweetness of sugar.
-It doesn’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels.
-Human studies show very little side effects… mainly minor digestive issues in some people.
-Studies where animals are fed massive amounts for long periods of time show no adverse effects.

Of course all things in moderation, but this alternative sweetener gets many thumbs up!
