What is Erythritol Used For? Health Benefits and Side Effects of Erythritol in Food

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that has least impact on blood sugar. Health benefits include almost zero calories, low carbohydrates and negligible glycemic index. It is absorbed in blood and then excreted in urine, and is thus responsible for least intestinal distress. It is ideal for use as a sugar substitute, even for diabetic patients. It generates a cooling affect in the mouth. It can be widely used in various bakery products. As an artificial sweetener it is preferred over other sweeteners for use in chocolates, brownies and cakes. Its use in chewing gums is good for dental health. It has high digestive tolerance and doesn’t cause tooth decay. Consuming high dose of this sweetener can cause bloating and flatulence. Hives and itching may also be experienced.
