If you’re a sugar fan, erythritol is the best substitute because it tastes almost exactly like sugar, but it contains only 6% of the calories. It is an excellent sugar alternative, especially for people who are overweight or have diabetes.
This syrup contains one-third of the calories of regular sugar. It is also very high in fructooligosaccharides, which feed the good bacteria in the gut and may help with weight loss. You can use it to sweeten your tea or coffee.
