Erythritol Sweetener from NOW is a white crystalline powder that is odourless, with a clean sweet taste that is similar to sucrose. It is approximately 70% as sweet as sucrose and flows easily due to its non-hygroscopic character.
Like other polyols, erythritol does not promote tooth decay and is safe for people with diabetes, however, erythritol’s caloric value of 0 and high digestive tolerance distinguishes it from some other polyols.
Erythritol is rapidly absorbed in the small intestine and rapidly eliminated by the body within 24 hours, laxative side effects sometimes associated with excessive polyol consumption are unlikely when consuming erythritol containing foods.
