Erythritol (meso-erythritol, meso-1,2,3,4-Tetrahydroxybutan) has been known for a long time. Its potential use as a bulk sweetener was, however, recognized rather late.
Erythritol is a natural constituent of several foods and beverages in levels sometimes exceeding 1 g/kg. Its solubility in water is approximately 370 g/L at room temperature and increases with increasing temperature. Erythritol melts at 121 C and is stable up to more than 160 C and in a pH range from 2 to 10. Depending on the concentration used, erythritol is approximately 60 % as sweet as sucrose. It is noncariogenic and not metabolized in the human body which means that it is more or less calorie-free.


Erythritol uses and applications include: Humectant, emollient in cosmetics; sweetener for beverages, chewing gum, candy, chocolate, pharmaceutical tablets and coatings; excipient for pharmaceutical syrups and medicated candies; taste masking agent to mask unpleasant bitter taste of actives in pharmaceutical syrups and oral care products; coolant for oral care products; hydrophilic building block in fine chemicals
Suggested storage of Erythritol: Store in cool, dry place below 0 C; keep tightly closed
