Erythritol Natural Sweetener, 1 lb, NOW Foods
|Erythritol Natural Sweetener Product Description|
|Erythritol, a ployol (sugar alcohol), is a good-tasting sweetener which
is suitable for a variety of reduced-calorie and sugar-free foods. It can be used
as a sugar substitute in most sugar-free recipes. Erythritol has been part of
the human diet for thousands of years due to its presence in foods such as pears,
melons, grapes and mushrooms. |
NOW Erythritol is 100% pure and derived from a corn source. Erythritol
resembles sugar in consistency and taste but has a caloric value near zero.
It is also a great sugar alternative for diabetics. Eyrthritol, like Xylitol,
may also inhibit cavities by denying plaque bacteria the fuel (sugar) it needs
to erode tooth enamel.
Erythritol Natural Sweetener
Many of you have been made well aware of the many dangers imposed by the over-consumption
of conventional sugars and artificial sweeteners. So have we. And that's why
we're so excited to introduce new Erythritol. Since the early 1990's, the popularity
of this low-calorie, white crystalline sugar alcohol has steadily increased,
and is now becoming the norm among many consumers and businesses alike. With
a sweetness that is approximately 70% that of sucrose, a non-hygroscopic texture
to prevent clumping and easy digestibility, it's easy to see why so many are
turning to this completely safe polyol.
- Low Calorie
One of Erythritol's most unique characteristics is its incredibly low caloric
content. While polyols are generally known for being low calorie by nature,
Erythritol exemplifies this characteristic, and contains just 0.2 calories
- Safe for Teeth
Erythritol is non-cariogenic, and does not metabolize the oral bacteria that
break down sugars and starches needed to produce the acids that lead to cavities
and decay. In fact, the FDA recently released a qualified health claim stating
that polyols including Erythritol "do not promote tooth decay".
- Won't Raise Blood Sugar
Several studies have suggested that Erythritol won't raise blood sugar or
insulin levels, and may therefore be a safe alternative to sucrose-based foods
designed especially for diabetics.
- Easily Digested
Based on the small size and unique molecular structure of Erythritol, it is
easily absorbed by the small intestine. As a result, gas and laxation are
far less likely in comparison to sucrose.
- Zero Impact Carbs
As one of only two polyols that carry a glycemic index of zero, Erythritol
has zero "impact carbohydrates"
