Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that has been approved for use as a food additive in the United States and throughout much of the world. It occurs naturally in some fruit and fermented foods. Erythritol is 60–70% as sweet as sucrose (table sugar).
Erythritol is a white, anhydrous, non-hygroscopic, crystalline substance with a mild sweetness and appearance similar to sucrose. As a bulk sweetener, erythritol provides volume, texture and microbiologic stability similar to sucrose. Erythritol is 60-70% as sweet as sucrose, depending on the food system. It is soluble in water and slightly soluble in alcohol.
