Erythritol is a white crystalline powder often used to replace sugar in a variety of food products. It is odorless and has a clean sweet taste that is similar to sucrose. It is approximately 70% as sweet as sugar and flows easily due to its non-hygroscopic nature. This natural sweetener appears in such fruits as pears, melons, and grapes, as well as other foods, including as mushrooms, wine, cheese, and soy sauce.
Erythritol is not new to the sweetness market. It has been produced commercially since the early 1900s for adding sweetness to foods and beverages along with enhancing food taste and texture. It provides an excellent replacement for sugar in chocolate, bakery cream fillings, beverages, fruit preparations and fillings and for your daily coffee, tea, cereals, etc.

Wow, just like sugar! I didn't get the chance to try this in any baking, but would love to. We used it in tea and lemonade and although it sweetens it perfectly there is that absence of leftover sweet flavor this is usual with pure cane sugar. Still it's good and would love to experiment with it more.
