Do your beverages contain erythritol, and is it safe for diabetics?
Our diabetic-friendly drinks may contain erythritol, a safe sugar substitute suitable for individuals managing diabetes.
Erythritol is natural sugar replacement. Unlike artificial sweeteners designed in a lab, erythritol is found in nature and produced using natural processes. It’s a type of sugar alcohol, but don’t let the name confuse you – it contains no sugar, and no ethanol (the kind of alcohol you drink).
Even though erythritol contains carbohydrates, many people do not include them in their macro calculations. That’s because almost the erythritol you consume (about 90% does not get metabolized in your body, and is excreted without any changes.
Erythritol is recognized as safe by health organizations, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Erythritol has undergone extensive scrutiny in scientific research. While it’s true that a single study may have suggested potential health concerns, it’s essential to note that this study has been widely debunked and discredited by the scientific community.
Debunked Study: One study that raised concerns about erythritol’s health effects has faced criticism for methodological flaws and limitations. Subsequent peer reviews and analyses have called into question the validity of its conclusions. It’s crucial to consider the broader body of scientific evidence and not rely solely on isolated studies.
References to Support Erythritol’s Safety:
- U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): The FDA recognizes erythritol as safe for consumption and has granted it Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status.
- European Food Safety Authority (EFSA): EFSA has conducted comprehensive scientific assessments and has confirmed the safety of erythritol as a food additive.
- PubMed: Numerous studies published on PubMed have consistently demonstrated the safety of erythritol, emphasizing its minimal impact on blood sugar levels and lack of adverse effects:
It’s important to base conclusions on the weight of scientific consensus rather than isolated findings.

If you have specific health concerns or conditions, we recommend consulting with a healthcare professional.
