How Do You Use It?
I've been using this in chocolate and baking. Swerve is a bit hard to get in australia but this is the same.
You can use confectioners erythritol just as you would sugar in cooking, baking and sweetening drinks like tea and coffee. They recommend 1 1/3 cup of powdered erythritol for every 1 cup of powdered sugar found in a recipe. A teaspoon or two in your morning coffee works like a charm. Feel free to play around with the proportions and use erythritol to your specific taste.
What Is It?
Erythritol is a 0 calorie & 0 carb sweetener used to add sweetness to just about anything!
Erythritol VS Sugar
Erythritol is 70% as sweet as sugar and their flavors are very similar. Unlike many sweeteners, there is no bitter or chemical aftertaste. Some people say there is a mild cooling sensation instead. However, while sugar is a 68 on the glycemic index (GI) scale, erythritol is a 0! High glycemic foods cause blood sugar spikes, leading to more fat storage and hunger crashes.
