Erythritol

Posted on May 28, 2009

2 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I've just used it on porridge so far. I left for holiday soon after getting it and haven't got back yet (doing this review at iherb.com request via email). Seems pretty good. The cool after-taste was not as noticeable as I expected and did not bother me at all. I tried Xylitol previously and found the laxative effect was a problem. No such problems with Erythritol, as expected. Since its only 70% as sweet as sugar, I plan to add some NuNaturals Stevia (the type that has no aftertaste, which I am also impressed with) so that I can get sufficient sweetness without the risk of spoiling the recipe by having too much dry ingredients (You would have to otherwise put approx 50% more Erythriol in the recipe to get the same sweetness). Plan to use it when making muffins and soy ice cream.

no bitterness

Tastes bitter if you taste it straight and have too much but not when i tried it in porridge. Has maltodextrin which is high give as a filler but my research indicated the impact on blood sugar levels is still minimal. Best stevia option for getting rid of that dreadful bitterness and licorice flavor the others have.

It is ok but I was a bit disappointed, having already tried Erithyritol. I was wanting something with a honey or maple syrup type of flavour for porridge. It did not seem to have that flavour and I found I needed much more than recommended - about 2 teaspoons instead of one. It is ok as a sweetener but does not taste quite as good as Erithyritol. Since it does not seem to offer any advantages over Erithyritol I prefer to stick with Erithyritol.
