For those who get gassy from sugar alcohols, here is my review of Pyure Stevia Blend, which mixes stevia with erythritol to mitigate that unfortunate side effect. It also tastes great, is reasonably priced, and has versatile uses as a sugar substitute for diabetics.
While Pyure Stevia Blend is free from seven allergens, the erythritol part comes from corn and the stevia plant is related to ragweed. Don’t use this product if you are allergic to corn, chrysanthemums, marigolds, ragweed or daisies.
Here’s what Pyure Stevia Blend is free from:
- Tree nuts
This only comes in one flavor but several sizes, 9.8, 16, and 40 ounce containers.
This blend dissolves better than the pure erythritol granules do while still having a granulated texture. This quality makes it more all-purpose, which is helpful if I need my blender for some other ingredient or recipe.
This has a different aftertaste than the regular erythritol and is more bitter and less minty when eaten on its own. In coffee, tea, or baked goods, you can’t really notice the aftertaste, however.
One main difference between Pyure and regular erythritol is the price. This costs less per ounce and you can use it measure for measure instead of sugar. It’s more convenient in these ways. However, because it contains erythritol it’s still a problem if you are allergic to corn.
How I use this
This blend is easier on the stomach than erythritol so I use it when I’ve got a lot of guests coming over who don’t usually eat foods made with sugar substitutes. This results in healthy, tasty treats that don’t have people running for the bathroom.
It’s great in cakes and for cookies. Because it’s granulated, you can use this to sprinkle on top of cookies or fruits where you want a nice sweet crunch.
