And with Xucker Bronxe, you can add a delicious caramel note to tea, roasted almonds or popcorn. Erythritol, a sugar alcohol, is naturally produced by fermenting sugar, much like beer and wine.

For more dry shortcrust and sponge cakes, use ground erythritol, which is available as powdered erythritol. You can find numerous delicious creations in our recipe section .

The production of erythritol

Erythritol is obtained from natural and renewable raw materials. Plants with a high starch content are almost always used for this purpose. Their starch is processed into glucose syrup, which is fermented into erythritol in large tanks, just as grape must is turned into wine in wine production. In nature, erythritol is found in some fruits (e.g. watermelon, pear, grape), mushrooms, fermented foods (soy sauce, rice wine, beer) and cheese. Your own body also makes small amounts of erythritol every day.

We use only non-GMO raw materials for our Xucker Light and bottle our sweeteners in our own production facility in Berlin.

Why you tolerate erythritol particularly well

Compared to sweeteners such as sorbitol, maltitol and isomalt, erythritol is considered a well-tolerated sweetener. Due to its particularly high digestive tolerance (tolerance in the intestine), hardly any flatulence, abdominal pain or diarrhea occur with erythritol - unlike with other sugar alcohols. About 90 percent of erythritol is absorbed through the small intestine and excreted unchanged through the kidneys.

We call erythritol Xucker Light

... or Xucker Bronxe or Powdered Xucker and is a great, because calorie-free sugar alternative, which has about 70 % of the sweetening power of Xucker Premium (xylitol) or sugar. Xucker Light is the perfect sweetener for anyone who wants to sweeten drinks or food without calories.
