What are the benefits of erythritol?

Erythritol is a sugar alcohol but it doesn’t have alcohol in it. It is an alternative sweetener. It has a cooling factor and zero glycemic index: it does not increase the blood sugars.

In your body erythritol is absorbed in the small intestine, it gets into the blood, but it is excreted by the kidney unchanged. The microbes don’t like to eat it. There aren’t many side effects of erythritol. It has zero impact on insulin because it doesn’t affect the blood sugars.
