Erythritol crystals are fantastic.

I use Erythritol crystals for all my baking needs. Noone knows it's not real sugar.
Great sweet substitute!

I've been following Suzanne Somers weight loss program and 'her' more expensive sweetener has Erythritol in it. Yours is a great and less expensive substitute for sugar and my weight has at least stabilized while getting sugar out of my diet. It's easy to cook with as well. Thank you.

Most like real sugar. Easy to use.
Tastes good, like weak sugar. A little laxative if you take a lot in one sitting.

I like this and xylitol in my tomato soup. I like Stevia in my tea. If you take a lot in one sitting, it has a laxative effect. But no stomach pain with it.

I love erythritol, it works fabulously for sugar-free baking! IHerb has the best price.
It is true

It taste just like sugar. I've used almost 4lbs to sweeten my coffee this month. The crystals dissolve in your mouth like icing.

This erythritol is low enough in calories (much lower than other sugar alcohols) to be comparable to typical artificial sweeteners (saccharin, nutrasweet, splenda) or stevia, but, for me, has a significantly better aftertaste (very similar to sugar). It is expensive compared to sugar, but buying in large sizes from iHerb helps.

Erythritol - The forgotten bulk sweetener
Posted by Reviewer2422940 on Feb 11, 2010
I-Herb delivered and excellent product, Erythritol to my door. What most people do not know when they buy sugar free products is that most are sweetened with sugar alcohols which serve as bulk sweeteners and sugar replacements. Most such sugar alcohols are inferior products and have 1/2 to 2/3 the calories of sugar plus excessive glycemic impact. This is not the case with erythritol whcih has only 5 calories per ounce and a glycemic index of zero. Most manufacturers do not care about the health of the consumer and use much inferior sugar alcohols (like maltitol) that add needless calories plus they cause more digestive disturbance and loose stool than Erythritol. Complaining will not do you any good. The companies all think we are stupid. Hershey belongs in the Hall of candy shame for replacing erythritol with maltitol
