Find out which sweetener is better erythritol or stevia in taste and cooking as well the health benefits. Erythritol vs Stevia facts Erythritol is in a category of compounds called carbohydrates or sugar alcohols which taste sweet but don’t contain many calories. It is found in small amounts in some fruits and fermented foods. This includes sake, wine, watermelons, beer, grapes, pears, and soy sauce. When erythritol is used in sugar-free foods and beverages, it’s most likely made from fermented corn. The current studies have failed to find a link between erythritol and any changes in triglycerides, cholesterol, or carbohydrate metabolism. Used as a natural sweetener, erythritol is about 60 – 80 percent as sweet as sucrose. This sugar alcohol has been approved for use as a food additive in the US since 2001. It was first discovered in 1848 by a Scottish chemist named John Stenhouse. The stevia plant has been used for more than 1,500 years by the Guaraní people. In traditional medicine in these regions, stevia also served as a treatment for colic, burns, stomach problems. Stevia is a 100 percent natural, zero calorie sweetener with a number of health benefits which have been confirmed in human studies. It’s made from a leaf related to popular garden flowers like asters and chrysanthemums. It is naturally very sweet and considered 100 to 200 times sweeter than sugar. The sweetness of the stevia leaves is caused by 8 glycosides contained within them.

What are the best low carb sugar alternatives on the Ketogenic Diet? This video is about what I believe to be the best sweeteners on Keto. For most people, sugar cravings go away after a while following a Ketogenic Diet. Sometimes though, desserts do call for some extra sweetness, (like my favourite - keto cheesecake), which is why I made this video. Pretty quickly on your Keto journey, you start realizing how over-sweetened many processed foods are that you’ve been eating for most of your life. And all of a sudden, you notice the natural sweetness in real food like cabbage, cauliflower and carrots. Before we go into which sweeteners you should and shouldn’t use on a Ketogenic Diet, I just want you to keep this in mind: - Use sweeteners sparingly. Even the ones that don’t affect your blood sugar and insulin levels can result in more cravings, usually for more sweet food. You also tend to over-eat sweetened food more easily. Quick example: When my girlfriend and I crave chocolate, one small square of 90% dark Lindt chocolate is enough for us. However, sometimes when we try slightly sweeter dark chocolate that is only sweetened with Erythritol or Xylitol, it’s hard for us to stop after an entire row and it turns on some sweet cravings. Even though it is sweetened with more Keto and blood sugar friendly sugar replacements, the fact that it tastes sweeter means that it’s harder to stop eating it. - If your goal is to lose fat as rapidly as possible or even if you’re just starting out on Keto, you should probably wait a little before you start experimenting with sweeteners. Ok, having said that, lets start with what you should avoid if you want to stay in Ketosis: Avoid things like high fructose corn syrup, sugar, maple syrup, the vegan favourite Agave, coconut sugar and dried dates (which are often used in Paleo recipes), as these are high in carbs and will significantly raise blood sugar and insulin levels. I also recommend staying away from all kinds of artificial sweeteners, since we don't know the long-term health effects as well as how they alter our gut micro-biome. I'm talking about Ace K, Sucralose, Saccharin and Aspartame. There are quite a few conflicting studies about these. For some people they can cause gut issues, weight gain, raise blood sugar, insulin levels or cause headaches. Other people report that they don't have any issues with their occasional Diet Dr Pepper (which contains Aspartame) on Keto. If having an Aspartame sweetened drink like Diet Dr Pepper once per week keeps you going and doesn't cause more cravings or negative health effects then it's up to you if you want to keep drinking it. If the alternative is binging on donuts, it's still going to be better. Still, you should check your blood sugar to see if it has an effect. Since we do have better natural sweeteners without carbs, I would go for those whenever possible: - First of all, stevia. Stevia has been used for centuries - it has no impact on blood sugar and insulin, so you can freely use it for treats. Just pay attention as it's many times sweeter than regular sugar. Sometimes the granulated form is mixed with maltodextrin, dextrose or even sugar, so either buy liquid stevia drops or make sure that the powdered version doesn't contain additives. Stevia by itself can have a bitter aftertaste though, but sometimes it's enough to just add some vanilla or cinnamon and you don't notice it any more. - Then we have Erythritol, a sugar alcohol that also doesn't affect glucose and insulin levels. It only has 70% of the sweetness of table sugar. It has sort of a cold, refreshing aftertaste by itself. We have also tried Xylitol in the past, but stopped using it as it does affect blood sugar levels. I would just stick to Erythritol when it comes to sugar alcohols, as the other ones are all higher in net carbs. Our personal favourite is a mix of Stevia and Erythritol. It seems to eliminate both of their individual aftertastes really well and you won't notice much of a taste difference compared to table sugar. - Monk fruit is another great natural sweetener that you can try on Keto. It is often mixed with Erythritol as well. In my opinion it's a little too expensive though, compared to stevia and erythritol, which is why we don't buy it. What do you use? I'd love to know in the comments below.
In this video I discuss Erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol that is added to many foods to increase their sweetness without increasing calorie count. Transcript (partial with notes) Erythritol is a sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols are sweeteners that are often added to foods such as chewing gum, protein bars and beverages. They are carbs that are attractive sugar alternatives, because they contain less calories than sugar, and have fewer negative health effects. Sugar alcohols are similar, in chemical makeup, to sugar and alcohol, however, erythritol and other sugar alcohols do not contain ethanol, which is the compound that gets you intoxicated. Some sugar alcohols naturally occur in some plant foods, but most are commercially processed from glucose, sucrose and starch. Erythritol is 70% as sweet as sugar. Erythritol can be purchased in both granulated and powdered forms. It contains 0.2 calories per gram, compared to 4.0 calories per gram of straight sugar, erythritol does not cause tooth decay, which gives it another advantage over sugar. Some of the side effects of consuming high amounts of erythritol include diarrhea, and upset stomach because it is not completely absorbed in the digestive system. While erythritol has a caloric advantage over sugar, I could find no true health benefits in consuming it. If you see erythritol listed on the ingredients list of a food item, this isn’t a bad item you need to avoid. Look at the other ingredients and see how healthy they are. Most food manufactures are using this ingredient just to keep calorie count down. Consuming erythritol in moderate amounts should not negatively affect your health, unless your digestive system is sensitive to it.
And compared to xylitol, erythritol can be fully absorbed by our bodies, causing less digestive distress. Xylitol and erythritol are alcohol sugars. You'll get about 2 calories for every gram of xylitol you consume, which is half the amount found in table sugar. Erythritol what's healthier?
