Erylthritol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts of various fruits and vegetables
It was discovered simultaneously by French and German chemists in 1891.
This Erythritol is derived from a corn cob.
Our body produces lots of erythritol every day as a result of normal metabolic processes.
Although it is classified as a carbohydrate, this sweet crystalline substance is slowly absorbed from the digestive tract and does not cause rapid rises in blood glucose, thus it helps support healthy blood/glucose levels. It is a sweeter good for diabetics.
Erythritol is a low calorie carbohydrate with about 40% lower than sugar, making it a healthy addition to any diet.
Erythritol has been safely used since the 1970's as an ingredient in gums and candies.
Since the bacteria in month can not make use of erythritol, does like sugar, xylitol does not promote tooth decay. Dentists and nutritionists encourage the use of Erythritol due to its unique and clinically proven dental benefits.
