Erythritol is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol derived from a corn source and is naturally found in small amounts in various plants, fruits and fungi, including mushrooms. It contains virtually no calories (95% less calories than table sugar), has a low glycemic impact, and doesn’t contribute to tooth decay. Basically all the bad things about sugar are absent in Erythritol, yet it tastes just like sugar and is about 70% as sweet.

Erythritol, although not as sweet as sugar, does have the same crunchy texture...this makes it a good substitute, for example, in toppings that require sugar. Unlike xylitol, it has no calories whatsoever...which is great for dieters. It does not cause tooth decay as sugar does and, according to studies, it is less likely than the other sugar alcohols to cause digestive problems. A good product in the kitchen "arsenal."
