Noncaloric functional beverages are a key segment in the rapidly growing functional food market. Erythritol, an all-natural bulk sweetener, offers sensorial as well as functional benefits for use in such beverages. It can improve taste quality by adding body and mouthfeel, and it is capable of masking unwanted off-flavors often associated with intense sweeteners. In addition, erythritol can strengthen the functional concept since it is noncaloric, noncariogenic, and nonglycemic, and it has… Expand

Quality Characteristics of Erythritol Icebox Cookies
Sucrose is one of the principal ingredients of cookies. But a sucrose-rich diet is associated with lipogenesis and obesity. Erythritol is a noncariogenic, nonglycemic and low calorie sweetener thatExpand
Use of Polyols in Oral Biology Research
The use of polyol (sugar alcohol) sweeteners in oral biologic research has predominantly stemmed from their anticipated non-cariogenicity in human nutrition and their inclusion in certain oralExpand
Physicochemical and Organoleptic Properties of Drinking Powder Containing Soy Milk Powder, Stevia, Isomalt and Erythritol
In this study, formulations of a drinking powder containing different combinations of three sweeteners (stevia, erythritol and isomalt) along with soymilk powder were evaluated. In the samples,Expand
Formulating blackberry leaf mixtures for preparation of infusions with plant derived sources of sweeteners.
TLDR
Herbal mixtures composed of blackberry leaf and natural sweeteners and stevia addition to formulated mixtures exhibited improved flavour profile and balanced sweetness in relation to plain blackberries leaf infusion. Expand
EFFECT OF ERYTHRITOL ON QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF REDUCED‐CALORIE DANISH COOKIES
The effects of erythritol on the quality characteristics of Danish cookies were studied. Danish cookies were formulated using erythritol as a sweetener to replace 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% sucrose. TheExpand
Development of low calorie mangosteen jam supplemented with rind of mangosteen
The development of low calorie mangosteen jam by replacing total sugar with maltitol syrup and supplementing with rind of mangosteen 12% (wet basis) of mangosteen pulp revealed that the sensoryExpand
Gastrointestinal tolerance of erythritol and xylitol ingested in a liquid
TLDR
When consumed in water, 35 and 50 g xylitol was associated with significant intestinal symptom scores and watery faeces, compared to the sucrose control, whereas at all levels studied erythritol scored significantly less symptoms. Expand
