Erythritol is 70% as sweet as table sugar, yet it is virtually non-caloric, does not affect blood sugar, and does not cause tooth decay. Under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling requirements, it has a caloric value of 0.2 calories per gram.
Diabetics will be happy to know that on the glycemic index, Erythritol is rated at zero. This means that insulin is not used to metabolize Erythritol.
One cup of Erythritol equals two-thirds cup of sugar.

I use erythritol on the Atkins diet to make an occassional sweet treat. It has very low impact on carbohydrates and is stable in baked goods (unlike Splenda) with no aftertaste. Much less intestinal distress than Malitol.
