SweetLite erythritol provides a unique opportunity to formulate healthier products without compromising taste and mouth-feel
SweetLite erythritol is a perfect alternative to sugar as a bulk replacement and sweetener thanks to its sweet taste and mouth-feel. Derived from plant sugar that is fermented, SweetLite has the lowest amount of calories among poyols with 0.2 therm/g, and has thereby zero-calorie status.
Indulgence without discomfort
SweetLite has a very high tolerance compared to other polyols and when consumed normally it will not cause gastrointestinal discomfort. The reason is that erythritol is absorbed from the small intestine and is therefore not fermented in the large intestine.
The maximum dosage of SweetLite before it becomes laxative is 0.80 g/kg weight. This is 2-3 times more than other polyols like xylitol and maltitol and 3-4 times more than mannitol and sorbitol. Like other polyols, Sweetlite is tooth-friendly.
Sweetlite erythritol is manufactured from corncob by a natural fermentation process.
