So, what is erythritol?

Erythritol is a low-calorie sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sugar substitute in a variety of foods and beverages. It has a chemical structure that is similar to sugar, but it is only partially absorbed by the body, making it a popular choice for people looking to reduce their sugar intake. Erythritol has a sweet taste and is known for its cooling effect, which can be especially refreshing in mint-flavored products. It is also non-glycemic, meaning it does not affect blood sugar levels, making it a suitable alternative for people with diabetes or those following a low-carbohydrate diet.
