Almitas Erythritol

Not just packed but made in Europe.

Did you know that sugar can be as addictive as drugs because it activates the brain’s reward system in the same way as drugs do? A study showed that rats will work harder for sugar than they will for cocaine. Another shocking fact is that, via a non-enzymatic chemical reaction, sugar molecules bind to proteins, like collagen and elastin fibres making our skin wrinkly, saggy and older looking than it actually should be. Not so sweet of it, right?

It’s time to switch to a really great alternative that is able to replace sugar without negative health effects, such as erythritol.



Erythritol belongs to a class of compounds called sugar alcohols. It can be manufactured but it also occurs naturally in some fruits and veggies so it’s not unfamiliar to the body. Among sugar alcohols, erythritol is the only one that does not affect blood sugar and insulin levels at all therefore it could be an excellent choice for those who want to lose weight, suffer from candida or diabetes and plan to go on a low carb diet. It has proven to be safe for consumption and has the lowest energy value: 0-0.2kcal/g which is basically nothing. (For comparison, xylitol has 2.5kcal/g)

It has very much the appearance of table sugar and its sweetness is 70% of table sugar’s. Unlike artificial and intense sweeteners, it also provides bulk so you can replace sugar perfectly with it in almost every food. It is heat resistant and dissolves in cold and warm liquids as well. You can use it the same way as sugar. Choose erythritol if you’d like to make a soup, cream or sauce, a smoothie, your favourite cake or cookie, any dessert, your morning coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

Almitas Erythritol

Not just packed but made in Europe

When it comes to producing erythritol, raw ingredient traceability, quality and purity are important. Almitas Erythritol is produced in France in a state of the art facility using only pure, non-GMO ingredients. Even the microogramism strains used in the fermentation process are carefully selected to ensure they are non-GMO.

The result is an erythritol of unparalleled European quality and purity. Although manufacturing in Europe is more expensive, we have decided to choose quality and accept a slightly higher cost in order to provide a better product that is also more local since it does not have to be shipped from the Far East.
