What Is Erythritol

author avatar Dr. Eric Berg 06/25/2018

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is found naturally in some fruits and vegetables. It has a low glycemic index, which means it does not cause blood sugar levels to rise as quickly as other sugars.

Erythritol is used in many foods and beverages because it has a clean, sweet taste with no aftertaste. It can be used to replace sugar or other sweeteners in recipes.

It is also used as an alternative to sugar for people who have diabetes or are on a low-carbohydrate diet.
