In January, 2007, Grandma Koyote was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. Immediately, Grandma Koyote began searching the marketplace for a sweetener she could substitute for sugar in her BBQ
sauces. One major problem, she had already searched the marketplace a few years before and had tried several sweeteners and none of them worked. She kept searching.
Grandma Koyoteís search paid off. She discovered Erythritol. After six months in her kitchen she developed her No Added Sugar Diabetic Friendly BBQ Sauce. This new sauce is especially efficacious
for Diabetics because of the sweetener Erythritol (ah-rith-ra-tall). Erythritol is a natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar, yet has only 5% of sugarís calories or 0.2calories per gram.
Erythritol is approximately 70% as sweet as cane sugar (sucrose). Classified as a sugar alcohol or polyol, Erythritol can be manufactured from starches or extracted from plants. Itís naturally occurring
in many foods, including grapes, pears, apples, melons, and mushrooms, as well as fermented foods like yogurt, cheese, soy sauce, and wine.
Erythritol scores a zero on the glycemic index whereas sugar scores a 100. Therefore, Erythritol does not affect blood sugar or insulin levels. Erythritol is unique among sugar alcohols, as 90% of it is
absorbed through the small intestine and eliminated through normal bodily functions. As a result, it does not cause any laxative effects whereas polyols like xylitol might.
Erythritol has a cooling effect in the mouth, similar to xylitol, and is among the strongest cooling effects of all sugar alcohols.
Erythritol is the first polyol to be industrially manufactured by a fermentation process. Glucose derived from starch is fermented using yeast. The fermented broth is heated to kill any microorganisms. Its
then crystallized, washed, dissolved, and purified using an ion exchange resin. The Erythritol solution is purified further by ultra filtration and recrystallization. The end result is the crystallized Erythritol
with a purity of over 99.5%, which complies with FDA regulations.
The benefits of using Erythritol as a healthy alternative to sugar and as part of a comprehensive program including proper dental hygiene have been recognized by the American Dental Association.
The FDA states that polyols like Erythritol do not promote tooth decay.
Erythritol is safe for Diabetics. Erythritol granules have a clean, sweet taste and wonít raise blood sugar or affect insulin levels. Itís a welcome choice for diabetics as an alternative to refined sugar.
Key benefits of Erythritol are:
1. Contains virtually zero calories
2. Zero on the glycemic index
3. Easily digestible
4. ALL NATURAL
5 .Heat and ph stable
6. Dental friendly
7. NO after taste
