Why Erythritol is a Safer Sugar Substitute

Print Friendly and PDF

What Is A Sugar Alcohol? (Erythritol)

Edible Sugar Alcohols typically come from fruits and vegetables. The most common vegetable that edible sugar alcohols are extracted from is corn, and some common fruits include plums and berries.

The great thing about them, is that they will not contribute to high-blood sugar sugar levels or hypoglycemia in Diabetics.

I should mention that not all Sugar Alcohols are edible, and some are even poisonous (such ethylene glycol which is used in antifreeze), so for future reference, the sugar alcohols I refer to in this article will be reference only to the edible ones.

The Most Common Sugar Alcohols

The most common edible sugar alcohols are:

  • Maltitol
  • Sorbitol
  • Xylitol
  • Mannitol
  • Lactitol
  • Erythritol

You can often find these specific products in things like Chewing Gum (If a Gum has a "Cooling Sensation" then it likely uses one of these) because they do not contribute to tooth decay.

Why Most Sugar Alcohols Are Bad For You

The thing is though, is most of these can not be completely absorbed by the small intestine.

What does this mean for you?

It means that over-consumption of these sweeteners can lead to some bad side-effects, such as:

  • Cramping
  • Bloating
  • Flatulence
  • Diarrhea

And some people (myself included) experience these effects just by eating small amounts (rather than over-consumption).

What's So Great About Erythritol?

The great thing about erythritol is that it can be in absorbed by your small intestine!

So that means as a Diabetic person (or people looking for healthy sugar substitutes) you now have a solid sweetener that you can use in all of your ingredients!

Did I mention that it tastes just like sugar? You have to use about 1/3 more of it in your recipes though, because it is not quite as sweet as sugar (it is about 65% the sweetness of regular table sugar).

You Can Bake Your Cake, And Eat It Too!

This sugar alcohol is a much safer sugar substitute than its counterparts (Xylitol and Sorbitol), and is definitely safer than any sort of artificial sweetener (Such as Splenda or Aspartame).

It's a great choice for anyone looking to improve the quality of their diet, without restricting their diet too much, especially considering it has 0 calorie content.

With Erythritol, you really can have your cake and eat it too!

My Journey

I'm really not as angry as I look in this picture

All websites are created for a purpose, and although I want to help as many people as possible live healthy, sugar free lifestyles, this website also helps benefit me mentally, spiritually, and economically.

If you're like me and have knowledge or experience that others would want, I can't speak highly enough about SBI!. It's allowed me to bake my passion for sugar-free recipes into an income-generating part-time hobby. Here's how I did it.

I hope my story can also be some sort of inspiration for you!
