Erythritol and Lankanto Substitutes

Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol (also known as polyols), part of its structure resembles sugar and part resembles alcohol. However, there is no ethanol in sugar alcohols, so it is not the same thing as alcoholic beverages.

Powdered and granular erythritol is becoming more readily available for baking and it's fine for your blood sugar (0 on the glycemic scale), is an antioxidant, and is even good for your teeth. The sugar alcohol cannot be metabolized by oral bacteria, and so does not contribute to tooth decay. Interestingly, erythritol exhibits some, but not all, of xylitol's tendency to "starve" harmful bacteria.


Unfortunately, erythritol is not that sweet on its own, so it’s often combined in foods and beverages with other sweeteners...that is where luo hang guo (the "longevity fruit" in Chinese) comes into play.



Scientists have studied luo han guo and its health benefits extensively, and they've found that this rare fruit has amazing health properties, it is: Anti-carcinogenic, Regulates blood sugar, Able to prevent and decrease oxidative stress related to diabetes, Prevents tooth decay, Anti-inflammatory, Inhibit tumor growth, Antioxidant, and Antihistiminic.



Lankanto is a combination of erythritol and luo han guo and has the same good properties as erythritol.

Lakanto, the amazing all-natural sweetener, has: Zero calories, Zero glycemic index, Zero additives, No influence on your blood sugar and insulin release, and a One-to-one ratio with sugar -- so it's easy to measure and use.

The FDA lists Lakanto as GRAS (generally recognized as safe) and it has been used in Japan for over ten years with a full recommendation for weight loss and diabetes from the Japanese Ministry of Health.
