Erythritol is a guilt-free, sugar-substitute, which has zero calories, zero net carb and health benefits. It is naturally found in fruits and vegetables, and it is produced by processing non-GMO corn.
At Healtholicious, we like erythritol because it has clean taste without funny aftertaste like stevia has. It has a pleasant cooling-taste as it is naturally-occurring sugar alcohol but it will not make you drunk! It does not raise blood glucose or insulin levels so you will not experience any sugar high from taking erythritol.
It has about 70% of the sweetness to sugar and the texture is very similar. You can also use it in baking. However, if you use it in liquid-like, cold dessert, it could re-crystalize.
