Diet-Food BIO ERYTHRITOL - 400 g
Bio Erythritol is a type of carbohydrate called sugar alcohol or polyols, which are water-soluble compounds found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. It is also produced commercially by fermenting a simple sugar derived from corn called dextrose. It is used as a zero calorie sweetener to help replace calories from carbohydrates and sugars in packaged foods and beverages. In addition to providing sweetness, erythritol also helps in retaining moisture in food.
Is erythritol naturally occurring?
Yes, Bio Erythritol is found naturally in fruits such as grapes, peaches, pears and watermelon. It is also found in mushrooms and fermented foods such as beer, cheese, sake, soy sauce, and wine. Bio Erythritol is commercially manufactured for use in baked goods, beverages, confectionery, chewing gum, chocolates, and popular sweeteners (manufactured as small tablets).
What are the health benefits of consuming erythritol?
Like most sugar alcohols, erythritol is not as sweet as sugar: it is only about 60-80 percent sweet. The lack of calories makes erythritol unique among sugar alcohols, most of which are around two calories per gram (compared with about four calories per gram). The health benefits of erythritol go beyond replacing the carbohydrate and sugar calories in our diet. Two areas where erythritol is known for its positive effects are oral health and blood sugar levels.
