Erythritol is a natural and tooth-friendly sugar substitute with no usable carbohydrates and no calories. It has absolutely no effect on blood sugar and is therefore ideal for diabetics, ketorians and lower carbers . Erythritol is the only one of the sugar alcohols or "polyols" that is 100% not utilized by the body. In other words, it has no calories, no usable carbohydrates and no effect on blood sugar.
Officially, it has to be declared as a carbohydrate in the nutritional information, but can be subtracted entirely as the body cannot absorb it and it has 0 caloric value.
Why Mix Erythritol & Stevia?
Pure erythritol has a cool aftertaste for many people.
If you don't like a cool aftertaste , the erythritol-stevia mix is ideal for you, because the stevia contained compensates for the coolness and the erythritol contained completely balances the stevia taste.
Thus, the erythritol-stevia mix is most similar in taste to sugar and also has the same sweetening power.
Pure erythritol only has a sweetening power of 70% of that of sugar. The Erythritol Stevia Mix has 100% the same sweetening power as sugar.
The Erythritol Stevia Mix dissolves much better than pure erythritol and is therefore, unlike pure erythritol, ideal for drinks.
The erythritol stevia mix can be used like normal sugar, that is, both for baking and for desserts or to sweeten drinks. Since erythritol certainly does not dissolve as well as sugar, you should use the powder variant of erythritol for a cream, pudding or similar in order to avoid a grainy texture in the dessert. Normal erythritol is perfect for normal cookie or cake dough.
Unlike most other sugar alcohols, erythritol is hardly hygroscopic, meaning it doesn't attract moisture. This makes its storage very easy.
It only causes digestive problems at very high doses (> 2 g / kg body weight), in contrast to xylitol or maltitol, which can lead to digestive problems even at low doses.
