Erythritol

Erythritol occurs as white to off-white crystalline powder or crystal which is odorless. Belonging to the class of sugar alcohols, it is identified in a variety of food products, fruits, vegetables, beverages and dietary supplements. It is known as a low glycemic food additive and plays an important role as a sweetener for diabetic patients, since it does not have glycemic or insulinemic effect due to its ability not to be metabolized but to be absorbed in the small intestine. It is also reportedly used as a sugar substitute in toothpaste, chewing gums, confectionery food products, etc.
