Inscription erythritol on a sweetener close up on a blue background top view.

Erythritol is an artificial sweetener that’s a hidden ingredient in some “sugar-free” and “keto-friendly” foods. It’s been linked to increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

What do you think?

Ever since man came into the world, Man could be a blessing or a curse. In many instances in the Bible , God chose to manifest His Will thru men of His choosing. So not everything made by man Will f you up. Like bread doesn’t exist in nature, neither does pasta but in moderation, these don’t f you up

Well, rats. I would drink bleach before I’d consume nutrasweet, aspertame, sucralose or any of the cancer-causing artificial sweeteners. But I haven’t been careful about erythritol. I have Lily’s gummies and chocolates on my desk right now. I had assumed if it was Lily’s it must be stevia only. But just read the labels… erythritol is the second ingredient and the very last ingredient, in smallest quantity, is stevia.

‘ibelieve’ is correct. If it doesn’t come in whole-food form then I’m staying away from it. I follow a few heath coaches who say that even when using stevia that only the whole leaf stevia is safe, to stay away from any powered/processed forms, even if they claim to be organic because they are still processed. The downside is that it’s a green powder that doesn’t fully dissolve so there’s sludge left in the bottom of every glass.

Thanks for this info.

Stevia is a natural contraceptive used by the indigenous peoples of South America. Avoid that too!

Thanks, Shirley, I didn’t know that! So, basically, honey and sugar (without exceeding) are still the healthiest choices.

This is something. “Erythritol occurs naturally in some fruit and fermented foods.[10] It also occurs in human body fluids, such as eye lens tissue, serum, plasma, fetal fluid, and urine”

You can buy Monk fruit without Erythritol. This is likely the healthiest sweetener
