Erythritol is a type of sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols, also called polyols, are sugar substitutes that occur naturally in plants and starches. Anthony's Erythritol is derived from cane sugar. To extract our pure Erythritol Granules, cane sugar is mixed with water and then fermented with natural cultures which results in Erythritol. The Erythritol is then filtered, crystallized, and then dried into granules.
On a semi-side note, we would like to take a moment to recognize some great inventions. First off, waterproofing - For eons we have battled water, and it wasn't until 1862 when we were finally relieved of water's treachery. Second, carbon air filters and respirators - Whew! What a breath of fresh of air these puppies provided circa 1867. Third, dyeing - Because easter eggs aren't going to bling themselves. Thanks 1856. What do all these have in common, you ask Yep, they were all invented by the same British Chap, John Stenhouse. And guess what else Sir Stenhouse discovered Yep, you guessed it again, Erythritol!
Anthony's Erythritol is not genetically modified, does not contain any genetically modified proteins, and is Batch Tested and Verified Gluten-Free.Anthony's Erythritol is Non-GMO, as it is derived from non-genetically modified Cane Sugar.
