Erythritol is a tasteful, zero-calorie sweetener suitable for a variety of low-calorie, sugar-free foods and drinks. It has been a part of the human diet for thousands of years due to its presence in fruit and other foods. Erythritol has a high tolerance to digestion, is not glycemic (and therefore suitable for diabetics) and does not promote the development of tooth decay.
Zero calorie sweetener.
A bulk sweetener that can be mixed with low calorie sweeteners (eg Acesulfame potassium and aspartame) or other polyols (eg Sorbitol and xylitol).
Sweet and clean taste without aftertaste.
Can be used in a variety of zero calorie, low calorie, low fat and sugar free foods and beverages, from candy to yogurt.
Beneficial for people with diabetes because it does not increase blood glucose or insulin levels.
It does not contribute to the formation of cavities.
USES OF ERITRITOL
Erythritol is a polyol (sugar alcohol) that occurs naturally in some fruits, such as pears, melons and grapes, as well as in other foods such as mushrooms and foods derived from fermentation, such as wine, soy sauce and cheese. Erythritol is a white crystalline powder with a sweet, clean taste similar to sucrose. It has a degree of sweetness of about 70% of that of sucrose and flows easily thanks to its non-hygroscopic nature.
Erythritol's caloric value of zero calories per gram and its high digestion tolerance set it apart from other polyols. Because erythritol is rapidly absorbed from the small intestine and rapidly cleared from the body within 24 hours, laxative side effects sometimes associated with excessive polyol consumption are unlikely in the case of foods containing erythritol.
Since 1990, erythritol has been produced commercially and added to foods and drinks to sweeten them and improve their taste and texture. Erythritol is distributed in the United States and around the world by Cargill, Inc. and Jungbunzlauer.
BENEFITS OF Erythritol
Zero Calories - Erythritol has 0 calories per gram for food labeling purposes in the United States, Europe and Japan. This caloric value 0 is based on the unique process of absorption and elimination of erythritol which does not involve its metabolism. Therefore, erythritol has the unique ability as a zero calorie sweetener to formulate "reduced calorie" and "light" products that require a 25% or more calorie reduction than the standard formula.
High digestion tolerance: Erythritol is rapidly absorbed from the small intestine and studies have shown that the human body does not ferment erythritol. Therefore, foods containing significant amounts of erythritol are highly unlikely to cause laxative side effects or flatulence. A recent clinical study concluded that adults tolerate the daily consumption of 1 gram of erythritol per kilogram of body weight in various foods and drinks throughout the day better than in the case of foods containing sucrose.
Suitable for diabetics: Some 14-day single-dose clinical studies show that erythritol does not affect serum glucose or insulin levels. Other clinical studies in diabetic patients have concluded that erythritol can safely be used to replace sucrose in foods formulated specifically for diabetics. Of course, people with diabetes should consider the impact of the other ingredients used in foods sweetened with erythritol on their diet.
Does not cause tooth decay: Erythritol, like other polyols, is healthy for the teeth and is resistant to the metabolism of bacteria in the mouth that break down sugars and starches to produce acids that can cause tooth enamel loss and cavity formation cavity. Therefore, they are not cariogenic. The usefulness of polyols, including erythritol, as alternatives to the use of sugars and as part of a comprehensive program that includes good dental hygiene, has been recognized by scientists and regulators.
The safety of erythritol as a food ingredient under its intended conditions of use is supported by various studies in humans and animals, including studies on short- and long-term feeding, reproduction across generations and teratology. The Joint FAO / WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) assessed the safety of erythritol in 1999 and determined an "unspecified" ADI, the highest possible safety category.
Erythritol has been used in Japan since 1990 in candy, chocolates, soft drinks, chewing gum, yogurt, fillings, toppings.
