Alpine Nutrition – Organic Erythritol – 172

Erythritol is a carbohydrate classified as a sugar alcohol that occurs in tiny amounts in fruits, vegetables, and even human cells (produced by our metabolism). So, it is natural. It is not digested to be used for energy by the body. Rather, it is absorbed into the blood and excreted in the urine.

    Alpine Nutrition – Organic Erythritol – 172


    Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sugar substitute. It occurs naturally in some fruits and fermented foods but is primarily produced commercially by fermenting glucose with yeast. Erythritol has become popular as a low-calorie sweetener due to its unique properties and potential health benefits. Here are some key points about erythritol:

    1. Low Calorie: Erythritol is virtually calorie-free, containing about 0.2 calories per gram. This makes it an attractive alternative to sugar for those looking to reduce calorie intake or manage their weight.
    2. Low Glycemic Index: Erythritol has a glycemic index (GI) of zero, meaning it does not raise blood sugar or insulin levels significantly. This makes it suitable for individuals with diabetes or those following a low-carbohydrate diet.
    3. Tooth-Friendly: Unlike sugar, which can contribute to tooth decay, erythritol does not promote dental cavities. Some studies even suggest that erythritol may have a protective effect on dental health by inhibiting the growth of cavity-causing bacteria.
    4. Digestive Tolerance: Erythritol is well tolerated by most people and is unlikely to cause digestive issues such as bloating, gas, or diarrhea, which are commonly associated with other sugar alcohols like sorbitol and xylitol. This is because a significant portion of erythritol is absorbed into the bloodstream and excreted unchanged in the urine, rather than fermented in the colon.
    5. Cooling Effect: Erythritol has a cooling sensation when consumed, similar to menthol, which can be perceived as refreshing in certain foods and beverages.
    6. Bulking Agent: Erythritol can be used as a bulking agent in sugar-free and low-calorie products to provide bulk and texture like sugar, without the added calories.
