Red Basket Food Co. are always working to help banters and paleo dieters on their road to health, as well as the rest of use who would like to stay away from harmful sugars and sweeteners. Erythritol is about 60 – 80% as sweet as sucrose and occurs naturally in pears, watermelon, grapes and even wine. Erythritol is a smaller molecule than other natural sweeteners, meaning 90 percent of it is absorbed in the small intestine after eating. With a rating of zero on the glycaemic index, Erythritol has no effect on blood sugar or insulin levels.

  • Erythritol is less likely to cause digestive upset and diarrhoea than other sugar alcohols are known to cause, because erythritol is a smaller molecule.
  • Suitable for diabetics
  • Studies have found that erythritol did not induce any significant effects on serum levels of total cholesterol, triacylglycerol or free fatty acids.
  • Erythritol cannot be metabolized by oral bacteria, and does not cause cavities.
  • Because most of the erythritol is absorbed into the body before it gets to the colon, it does not normally cause the laxative effects that some individuals experience after consumption of other sugar alcohols
  • Erythritol has even been found to exist naturally in human tissues and body fluids
  • After many toxicology and clinical studies, erythritol has been found to be safe for consumption as a sugar substitute, even when consumed on a daily basis and in high amounts.
  • Erythritol converts to glucose slower in your body, and does not require much insulin to metabolize.
  • It is even an antioxidant –helping to fight free radicals responsible for aging. It is considered to be even more efficient than other sugar alcohols because it is so readily absorbed and yet not metabolized.
  • Exhibits a clean sweet taste with no aftertaste.


For use as a sugar substitute, either completely in your diet or complimentarily.


Consuming over 50 grams of erythritol may result in nausea or stomach rumbling.

This is a great sweetener, and a much better alternative than Xylitol as it's safe for pets.

Recently cut sugar out of my diet and this has been an excellent sweetener. I use it in all my baking. And this price seems to compare well to other stores.

Erythritol is the healthiest sugar substitute . Even better than stivia.
You'll never get blood sugar spike after consumming it. No headache or diagestive problems. And you'll never gane weight from it 100%.
Love it so much and using only erithritol for my wellbeing. Best price on the market.
