Xylitol & Erythritol sound chemical....but it may not be what you think!

December 17, 2013 1 min read

If I began to switch my nutrition I asked myself on what I can´t do without. Sweet! I don´t need it every day, but sometimes the sweet tooth comes through. A long search for a natural sweetener with low calorie began. I tried Stevia, but it is difficult to dose when bake. Then I found my heaven: Erythritol & Xylitol What it is? Both are sugar alcohols and are used as sugar substitutes. They look like sugar, smells sweet with a slightly cool effect on the tongue, if you eat it pure. Xylitol is a natural gained sweetener. It is made from birch or corn fibers. Erythritol is obtained by the fermentation of pears, peaches, grapes, mushrooms and melons.  You consume it regulary, if you are eating these fruits and vegetables, cheese or drink wine. It is endogenous in the human and animal body. The benefits: They have high energy than sugar, but both don´t affect the blood sugar. They help prevent caries and even act cariostatic. Xylitol contains 40% less calories than sugar and no metabolize carbohydrates. The tolerance of Xylitol is 50g for one adult person per day. Erythritol is free from calorie-and carbohydrates. It has a very high human tolerance you can contain 200 g per day. Which are as much as 4 bars of chocolate. The drawbacks You have to start careful by using. If you contain to much both can lead to bloating and diarrhea. 1 start with 1 teaspoon per day. I´m curious of your opinion.
