What is Erythritol? A sugar alcohol and rare sugar that is essential for dieting

The structure of erythritol

Hello! I'm the owner of Fusubon.

Why do Fusubon products taste sweet but have low sugar content?
How can you make something sweet without using sugar?

You may ask, "Why is this so?" and it's because of the natural sweeteners erythritol and stevia.

Today we will introduce you to erythritol.

What is Erythritol?

Erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol found in fruits and fermented foods, and is a very safe ingredient. Erythritol is introduced as a perfect sweetener together with stevia in "The Silicon Valley Way to Change Yourself: The Ultimate Diet."

The 50 or so types of sugar alcohols that exist in nature are sometimes collectively called rare sugars.

Characteristics and Effects of Erythritol

Erythritol

Although erythritol is absorbed by the body, it is not metabolized , so the actual carbohydrate content is 0g. All carbohydrate content in Fusubon does not include erythritol.

Also, it is only about 60 to 70 percent as sweet as sugar, and although it is not as sweet as xylitol, it does leave a slightly refreshing sensation in the mouth.

Therefore, by combining erythritol with natural sweeteners such as Monk Fruit, Stevia, or a combination of both, the lack of sweetness and refreshing sensation can be masked.

Erythritol is also said to have the effect of weakening the activity of bacteria in the mouth and suppressing the formation of plaque.

Precautions when taking erythritol

Erythritol

Depending on your constitution, ingesting large amounts of erythritol may cause loose stools (laxative effect).

This is because it prevents the body from absorbing any more of what cannot be metabolized.

The amount per unit body weight that does not cause a laxative effect when ingested all at once is said to be 0.66g/kg body weight for adult men and 0.80/kg body weight for adult women. For example, for an adult male weighing 60kg, the intake limit is about 40g per day.

The erythritol used in Fusubon is less than 10g per capsule, so you can rest assured that taking Fusubon alone will not cause diarrhea.

It is no exaggeration to say that erythritol holds the key to carbohydrate restriction.

Everyone, please make use of erythritol to successfully limit your carbohydrate intake.

see you!
