- Heat stable

- An antioxidant
erythritol has several advantages over sugar: it contains almost no calories, it does not cause tooth decay and it does not spike blood sugar.
Erythritol should not cause digestive upset in most people unless it is consumed in large quantities of over 50 grams.
All of this said, our recommendation is that our readers still need to be cautious not to overindulge on foods containing erythritol. The reason for this is: most foods that use sugar alcohols as sweeteners still contain a significant quantity of carbohydrates, fat and calories, according to the American Diabetes Association. If you're choosing foods sweetened with sugar alcohols for weight loss reasons, you may not be giving yourself an advantage.
When choosing foods with sugar alternatives, check the food facts label, and compare the nutritional information to conventionally sweetened foods to determine which is the best choice for you.
