Sweetener GP Erythritol is a zero calorie natural sweetener which facilitates the control of blood glucose level and body weight. An ideal natural sugar substitute for diabetics, overweight persons or if you are on weight loss diet plan.
Sweetener GP Erythritol is in crystalized form which is similar to sugar and the sweetness is about 70% of sugar. Tastes good, with no unpleasant after taste as with some other sweeteners.
Erythritol has been found to be readily absorbed from the small intestine, not systemically metabolized, and excreted unchanged from the body. Hence, rendering it to be noncaloric, has a high gastrointestinal tolerance, and does not affect blood glucose. Clinical evidence also shows that erythritol can act as an antioxidant. Erythritol has been certified as tooth friendly as it does not cause tooth decay. Oral health studies revealed that erythritol can also reduce dental plaque.
Erythritol is produced through fermentation of glucose using conventional yeasts. Starch from corn or wheat is normally used and processed by way of enzymatic hydrolysis to turn it into glucose. Chemically, erythritol belongs to the family of polyols (or sugar alcohols) which can naturally be found in plants, fermented foods and beverages. It is classified as nutritive sweetener.
Despite the health benefits found in erythritol, its popularity as a sweetener is still small because of its high retail price.
Scientific findings suggested that erythritol is not only a natural sugar substitute but also beneficial towards blood glucose. Suitable for use by everyone in the family, from young to elderly.
