So Nourished Powdered Erythritol
Erythritol is a 0 calorie & 0 carb sweetener and sugar replacement used to add sweetness to just about anything!
It’s a part of the “sugar alcohol” family, which means it’s a naturally derived extract from fruits and plants and passes through your body, untouched, much like fiber. Because it’s passed through, erythritol does not affect blood sugar in most people and has 0 net carbs. It's a great option for diabetics, low carb dieters, and anyone looking to cut calories without sacrificing sweetness!
Why Use Erythritol?
Erythritol is 70% as sweet as sugar and their flavors are very similar. Unlike most alternative sweeteners, there is no bitter or chemical aftertaste. Some say there is a mild cooling sensation. While sugar is a 68 on the glycemic index (GI) scale, erythritol is a 0! High glycemic foods cause blood sugar spikes, leading to more fat storage and hunger crashes. Dentists love erythritol. Oral bacteria feed off of sugar but erythritol is shown to prevent plaque buildup, making it quite tooth-friendly!
Who Can Use It?
Just about anyone looking to reduce their sugar intake, lose weight, or improve their health can benefit from using our confectioners' erythritol as a sugar substitute. It’s a favorite among low-carb dieters and diabetics as well as sugar-free and paleo bakers. Plus, it’s proven safe for kids and pets too!
Who should use erythritol?
- Anyone who wants to get away from the harmful effects of sugar but still keep life sweet! Erythritol is especially helpful for those on a low-carb or ketogenic diet and people with diabetes. It is the best and most affordable sweetener.
- We have 16 ounce/1 lb bags and 40 oz/2.5 lb bags of powdered erythritol. Due to shipping costs, you can get our powder erythritol at a discount price in larger quantities.
- Use erythritol just as you would sugar in cooking, baking, and sweetening drinks like tea and coffee. We recommend 1 1/3 cup of erythritol for every 1 cup of sugar in recipes. A teaspoon or two in your coffee works like a charm. Feel free to play around with the proportions and use erythritol to your specific taste.
