Erythritol Stevia Powdered Sweetener 1 Cup (132g)
The same mix of Erythritol and Organic Stevia blend but carefully ground here in NZ to be much finer so you can make great icing, frosting, or dusting for your baking. This product has been sieved and is lump free, making it ready to use for your convenience.
Ratios to Sugar in recipes: 1:1 so 1 Cup of this Erythritol + Stevia Powdered is the same sweetness as 1 C of icing sugar.
- Erythritol – naturally occurring sugar alcohol found in some fruits and vegetables not genetically modified.
- Stevia – is an herb native to South America and for over 1500 years people have been using fresh and dried stevia leaves to sweeten food, beverages and herbal medicines.
Benefits and claims: This blend of erythritol and stevia is crafted as a replacement for icing 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. Good for oral health because it slows the growth of one type of bacteria and decreases the acid that bacteria make.

How much can I eat? There aren't official guidelines on using Erythritol, but most people can handle 1 gram for every kilogram of body weight daily. Excessive consumption acts like a laxative, similar to eating some fruits.
