14. Why does your Zero soda have 12g of Carbs?
Erythritol is a sugar substitute also referred to as a sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols are counted as carbohydrates in the nutrition label however; their caloric effect on the body is lower than that of a normal carb which is why it has zero calories.
Being a sugar alcohol, Erythritol does not affect blood sugar making it suitable for a low-carb diet! Even though there are carbohydrates in erythritol they are subtracted from the total carb count because when they are just ingested, they are excreted by our bodies. Our bodies simply cannot metabolize it or use it for energy.
