If you would like to eat a lot more healthier and try to eliminate some of the sugar that is in your diet, you will be able to benefit from cooking with Erythritol. If you do not know what Erythritol is, it is simply a sugar alcohol that is 50 to 70 percent just as sweet as sugar. The best thing about Erythritol is that it does not raise your blood sugar levels, so if you are a diabetic, this is something you should think about cooking with.

There are many different ways that you can cook with Erythritol. You'll be able to replace sugar in all of your recipes that you use at home with Erythritol. The only thing you will really need to know is that you should use about one-third more of Erythritol for cooking or than what the recipe actually calls for. That is because it is not as sweet as sugar actually is. Whether you are baking, or adding the sugar to some other type of meal, you can combine Erythritol with granulated sugar if you would like to keep some of the sugar content but also take away some of the calories. This is appropriate if you are baking something sweet such as a cake, etc.

You can use Erythritol in all of your cooking such as meats, fish, and even candid vegetables. You'll be amazed just how good of a job it actually does. If some of the crystals from the Erythritol are too big, then you can use a food processor to try and break some of it down so you can properly add it to your meals. This is especially true if you are adding it to some type of cream that you may be making or even a sauce.

It's really easy to cook with Erythritol, but you just need to make sure that you use it correctly so you can get the same taste.
