Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that tastes 60 to 80% as sweet as sucrose. Studies show it isn’t metabolized by oral bacteria and can help prevent cavities. Erythritol may also help promote re-mineralization of teeth, including teeth affected by cavities. As an antioxidant, erythritol can protect tissues—especially the cardiovascular system—from free radical damage.
Erythritol is rapidly absorbed by the small intestine and doesn’t lead to gastrointestinal side effects like other sugar alcohols. It’s extremely well tolerated, even by infants and sensitive people, at doses of up to 0.7 g of erythritol/kg body weight. In healthy adults, gastrointestinal tolerance ranges from 0.5 to 1.0 g erythritol/kg body weight/day.
Erythritol has a glycemic index of 0 and an insulemic index of 2 because it doesn’t affect blood concentrations of glucose or insulin, respectively. Therefore, erythritol is safe for people with diabetes, liver diseases, and other metabolic disorders. Erythritol may also help protect against cardiovascular damage caused by high blood glucose levels (for example, advanced glycation endproducts; AGEs) in diabetic and healthy patients.
Erythritol is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits (especially grape, peach, pear, watermelon and other melons), mushrooms, sea vegetables, algae, and fermented liquids (especially beer, cheese, miso, sake, soy sauce, and wine).
The erythritol used in Krisda natural sweetener is produced by a yeast organism that is found in nature. The yeast ferments or digests dextrose and other nutrients. In other words, dextrose is the food for the yeast – much like corn may be food for a cow that produces meat or milk. The dextrose used as the feedstock for the yeast is a simple sugar that is derived from the starch component of U.S.-grown corn. Although genetically enhanced corn and non-transgenic corn are grown in the U.S. today, erythritol is not made from corn or dextrose feedstock (just as milk is not made from cattle feed); it is made from the yeast organism. Erythritol is not genetically modified, and does not contain any genetically modified proteins.
