Benefits and claims: This blend of erythritol, stevia and molasses is crafted as a replacement for brown sugar. Your small intestine absorbs Erythritol quickly and gets it out of your body through urine within 24 hours. This means Erythritol doesn't have a chance to "metabolize" -- turn into energy in your body.
Features: This sweetener will have a slight effect on glucose or insulin levels due to the higher sugar in the molasses.

For some people, Erythritol can give a mouth-cooling feel, this can disappear by waiting to eat items made until the next day.
