Product Description

Erythritol, a ployol (sugar alcohol), is a good-tasting sweetener which is suitable for a variety of reduced-calorie and sugar-free foods. It can be used as a sugar substitute in most sugar-free recipes. Erythritol has been part of the human diet for thousands of years due to its presence in foods such as pears, melons, grapes and mushrooms. NOW Erythritol is 1% pure and derived from a corn source. Erythritol resembles sugar in consistency and taste but has a caloric value near zero. It is also a great sugar alternative for diabetics.

It works in baked goods really well.

PROS: * Tastes just like sugar and has no unpleasant aftertastes, unlike stevia.

This is by far one of the best natural non-caloric sweeteners I've tried.

If you do some research on natural sweeteners with a zero glycemic index, you will see that Erythritol is one of the best. It is a sugar alcohol found in various fruits and vegetables like Xylitol. But unlike Xylitol, it is not dangerously toxic to dogs and does not have bloating, gaseous effects. If you don't need a sweetener without blood sugar effects, you can look at brown rice syrup or agave, since they have a very low effect on blood sugar. If you want no blood sugar effects at all, I'd recommend this, since it has a very nice taste (like sugar) with no aftertaste. Stevia is another option, but is very strong and has a less appealing taste. If you use even a bit too much, Stevia generally has a rather bitter aftertaste. This is not true of Erythritol.

I would say the only downside is the cost and that it is only 70% as sweet as sugar. You can spike it with Stevia to make up the difference if you like Stevia. It doesn't take much to add to get it a lot sweeter. You should shake it up really well before using, though.

Note: If you want to buy this particular item, I discovered that this company has not charged me extra shipping for more bags going to the same address. I would avoid EmeraldForest, though, because the Erythritol I got from them had a very strange, foul smell -- like mothballs -- and had a faint aftertaste that was the same. Their customer service was very nasty when I called to return it. I am sticking with Now Foods from now on.

Now Foods' erythritol is a sugar substitute made from corn. By fermenting the corn's sugars, the manufacturer produces a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol product. Sugar alcohols taste exactly like sugar, but without the calories and blood sugar spike. And they are alcohols in chemistry terms only, not to be confused with the kind of alcohol one finds in adult beverages.

PROS:

* Tastes just like sugar and has no unpleasant aftertastes, unlike stevia.

* Has a glycemic index of zero. Great for diabetics or those simply wishing to eliminate excess sugar from their diets.

* Contains virtually no calories.

* Made by a manufacturer committed to a wide range of sweeteners and food products, so the company is experienced and trusted in its field.

* Erythritol occurs naturally in many foods. The FDA recognizes it as a viable and safe sugar substitute. Erythritol-based sweeteners have been on the market in other countries for years.

* Unlike some other sugar alcohols such as xylitol, mannitol, and sorbitol, it will not cause gas if consumed in large amounts.

* Not only does erythritol not promote tooth decay, it actually prevents it, inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria in the mouth.

* Can be used in baking.

CONS:

* Not quite as sweet as sugar. You need about a quarter to a third more erythritol by volume for an equivalent.

* Though it tastes exactly like sugar, erythritol has a slight, mint-like, cooling effect on the tongue. In foods where that effect would be undesirable, erythritol would need to be combined with another sweetener to diminish the effect. (This effect seems to vary from person to person, too.

The texture of this is virtually identical to sugar. I've tried xylitol but the texture is a larger, grainier one. I like this better. I have tried all kinds of natural sugar substitutes but found they gave an unpleasant aftertaste that made my morning coffee ritual one that turned from pleasant to nasty, so I had to stop using it. This one I use in coffee exclusively. I haven't tried it in baked goods, ice cream, etc, but one day I will.

This is the best non caloric sweetener, hands down. It tastes remarkably similar to sugar. So far I haven't found anything it doesn't work with, but I will admit I haven't tried making any chocolates or frostings with it, lol. It's great in drinks and baked goods, though!

It isn't often when we're pleasantly surprised by a substitute food product. This is one of those rare surprises.
I'm admitting I haven't tried it everywhere I would use sugar. But then, I'm not much of a baker so I'm not worried there.
I was simply trying to find a decent, healthy substitute for sugar in my morning coffee.
This easily fills that need. I've tried everything, including the forest packets... which just didn't taste right. Truvia, blechhh.. (and I don't want to support Cargill). Pink stuff is nasty and the blue stuff is dangerous.
I'm so happy to have found this that I filled up my sugar bowl with it, and I brought a package to work to use there as well. I even gave a package to my ex-husband who's diabetic and I don't even like him! That's how excited about it I am.
Overall, I could not be more pleased. I'm pretty sure you will be too.

We recently started a low carb life style and needed a
sugar replacement for our occasional sweet craving. After trying
quite a few, this one is our favorite.

This sweetener takes about a tablespoon to get the same sweetness as 1/2 of a tsp of others on the market, so is very expensive overall. No aftertaste though, so if money is not a concern, I would recommend it.
