What is Erythritol?
Erythritol is part of the sugar alcohol family. Unlike regular sugar, sugar alcohols provide sweetness without contributing as many calories or raising blood sugar. Erythritol contains the lowest calories per gram of any of the sugar alcohols. It’s also more easily tolerated than the other polyols (sugar-free sweeteners). Due to its structure and the way we absorb and excrete erythritol, it's less likely to cause stomach pains or distress than other sugar alcohols.
