A very useful lo calorie sweetener

Posted by iHerb Customer on October 17 2006 | Verified Purchase

This is a GREAT sweetener. It measures like sugar, has almost no calories, has the mouth feel of sugar, doesn’t cause cavities, tastes very similar to sugar, has no aftertaste, and has no bitter or off tastes. When eaten in crystal form, it has a cooling mint-like effect, similar to Xylitol. However, there is no cooling effect when it is dissolved. Unlike sugar, it forms crystals very rapidly. Sugar takes several days to grow large crystals. With Erythritol, you can grow large crystals in an hour or two. I’ve made great rock crystal candy with it in less than 1 hour. I’ve used it to bake cupcakes, make root beer, really smooth ice cream, chocolate milkshakes, and more. My family and I love it. Erythritol is especially good in ice cream where it helps make the ice cream smoother by preventing ice crystals from forming. Erythritol tastes more like sugar when mixed with a little fructose or small amounts of high intensity sweeteners like Lo Han Kuo, Stevia, etc. I find the combination of Erythritol, Stevia, and Lo Han Kuo makes one of the best tasting and most useful all natural lo calorie sweetener mixes. I typically use a mix of 3/4 tsp Erythritol, 1/4 tsp SlimSweet (Lo Han Kuo), and 1/32 tsp SoooLite Pure (Stevia) to replace 1 tsp of sugar in many recipes and it turns out great. Sometimes I mix in a little bit of Fructose which really gives it a rich taste.

Thanks for your feedback!

Amazing! No stomach problems!

Unlike xylitol (which I also use), this product does not upset my stomach at all. It's very sweet and cane suger-like. I mix it with xylitol and stevia, and the combo is great! My sweetened tea is back! What's better is that Now Foods uses only Non-GMO corn for this product! A win-win!

Thanks for your feedback!

Beware - from GMO Corn

Posted by SazfromIreland on April 10 2012 | Verified Purchase

A previous reviewer posted that this product is non-GMO. In fact, if you look at the product descrption, NOW say that the product comes from a corn source, but do not state it is non-GMO. NOW has a policy to use Non-GMO products when possible BUT they can't guarantee that this product is produced from NON-GMO corn. For those interested, they do state that their Xylitol is from a non-GMO source of corn.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great Product

I have tried every kind of sugar substitute on the market. This is the only one that comes close to tasting like sugar with absolutely no after-taste.

Thanks for your feedback!

Love this

Posted by iHerb Customer on January 1 2010 | Verified Purchase

It tastes great and I like that it mimics some properties of sugar. I like to replace it 1:1 for sugar, then make up the additional sweetness with NuNaturals Stevia; the two seem to have a good synergy.

Thanks for your feedback!

exactly what I wanted

Posted by iHerb Customer on February 29 2008 | Verified Purchase

this is exactly what I thought it would be, like sugar with no stevia aftertaste.

Thanks for your feedback!

Tastes Great

Posted by iHerb Customer on November 15 2007 | Verified Purchase

No aftertaste. The closest thing to sucrose I've ever found.

Thanks for your feedback!

I purchased Erythritol because I'm trying to get away from all the products that have Aspertame as the sweetening agent. Erythritol tastes like sugar but it costs much more and you have to use a lot of it to get the same sweet taste.

Thanks for your feedback!

No gas or bloating. Not as sweet as xylitol. Would recommend using both together as sweetener.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good Sweetener

Posted by iHerb Customer on May 30 2008 | Verified Purchase

This was good. Not the best I've had, and not the cheapest either. For the same price, I can get Organic, so not likely to buy this from you again either.

Thanks for your feedback!
