					          Benefits Of Erythritol Sweetener As A Natural Sweetener

Erythritol is one of the most effective sugar alcohols, which are used as a natural
sweetener for the diabetic people. It is also used as a bulk sweetener in the
reduced calorie foods. It contains in various fruits like grapes, pears as well as
many other fruits. Moreover, it also contains in different foods like mushrooms
and fermentation-derived foods like soy sauce, cheese and wine. Erythritol has
been producing commercially since 1990 and they are added to various
beverages and foods to provide sweetness and to enhance their taste and
texture according to the people’s specific interests and choices.



Its sweetness is considered about 60 to 70% of sucrose and it flows easily due
to its non-hygroscopic character. It is also considered safe for tooth decay unlike
other polyols. Its calorie value per gram is zero. Erythritol is rapidly absorbed in
the small intestine and eliminated by the body within 24 hours. Thus, it is easy
to digest unlike other sugar alcohols. Due to its various qualities, FDA has
approved it as “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) in USA by agreeing the
fact that it had no problems. Along with these things, there are many other
benefits of erythritol sweetener. Have a glance on it which are mentioned in the
below:



         It doesn’t cause any kinds of tooth decay as it is resistant to
          metabolism by oral bacteria that break down sugars and starches in
          producing acids. These acids may lead to tooth enamel loss and cavities
          formation.

         Erythritol has zero calories per gram for food labeling processes in
          various countries like United States, Japan, Canada, Europe etc. This
          zero calorie value based on its unique elimination and absorption
          process which doesn’t involve the metabolism of erythritol. These are
          primary reasons that it is used as a zero calorie bulk sweetener for
          formulating “light” and “reduced calorie” products.

         It is considered safe for diabetic people as it does not affect insulin
          levels or blood serum glucose. It has been observed by various medical
          surveys that erythritol may be safely used for replacing sucrose in food
          formulated for diabetic patients.

         Erythritol has high digestive tolerance as it is rapidly absorbed in small
          intestine. It has been observed by the studies that erythirtol is not
          fermented by the human body. Thus, foods containing appropriate
          quantity of erythritol are not likely to cause laxation and gaseous side
          effects.
Thus, erythritol sweeteners are considered as one of the best sugar alcohols in
comparison to others, which is also good for health.
