DFI Erythritol Benefits
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol structured much like regular sugar. Sugar Alcohols are common throughout nature, unlike artificial sweeteners. Erythritol is even produced in the human body. It can also be found in many other natural products including raspberries, watermelon, grapes, pears, and mushrooms!
Erythritol differs from other sugar alcohols, as it is virtually calorie free (0.2 per gram on label in the US & is non-caloric in the EU and Japan). With only 5% of the calories of sugar, Erythritol still has 70% of the sweetness!
It also has no adverse effects on digestion and has several positive health effects. Below are some of the many benefits to DFI Erythritol.

Erythritol has no insulin response, making it safe for people with diabetes. Studies have also shown that there is no effect on cholesterol, triglycerides, or other biomarkers.
Erythritol prevents cavities by inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria and even reduces dental plaque.
No Digestive Problems
Many sugar replacers can cause digestive problems. On the other hand, Erythritol is the most tolerated polyol in nature.
