Erythritol

Erythritol

Erythritol is one of the most interesting polyols due to its almost zero calories, a clean sweet taste at a relative sweetness of about 0.5. Laxative side effects, as in other sugar alcohols, are not an issue with erythritol. Thus, erythritol qualifies as a very low-calorie bulk sweetener for sugar-free products.

Erythritol is one of the most interesting polyols due to its almost zero calories, a clean sweet taste at a relative sweetness of about 0.5. Laxative side effects, as in other sugar alcohols, are not an issue with erythritol. Thus, erythritol qualifies as a very low-calorie bulk sweetener for sugar-free products.

Erythritol is the only sugar alcohol produced by fermentation.

Erythritol naturally occurs in some fruits and fermented foods and is manufactured industrially by fermentation from glucose.

Erythritol is found naturally in some foods. It’s also made when things like wine, beer, and cheese ferment, and it is also found in algae, fungi, and lichens. It is twice as sweet as sucrose.

Erythritol is used as a low-calorie sweetener in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Its sweetness level is ∼70% that of sucrose and it is safe for diabetics because it does not affect blood glucose levels after oral ingestion.
