Introducing the NEW EquiSweet Xylitol and Erythritol sweeteners! – What are these products?
Xylitol and Erythritol are part of a range of sugar alcohols, or polyols but neither of them are sugars nor alcohols. They provide a sweet taste with fewer kilojoules than table sugar. They are carbohydrates that chemically have characteristics of both sugars and alcohols. However, sugar alcohols do not contain the type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages.
