What Is Erythritol?
Erythritol is a natural sweetener that we can’t metabolize [*], which means it tastes like sugar without spiking our blood sugar. Found in fruits and vegetables, it’s 70% as sweet as sugar.
Erythritol is part of the family of sugar alcohols, which are found in nature, but it is unique compared to others such as sorbitol or maltitol. Erythritol is the only one that has a glycemic index of zero and is easier to digest.
✅ Zero calories
