Habitall is made from three all-natural ingredients: erythritol, polydextrose, and monk fruit. Unlike many sweeteners on the market which are synthetic chemical compounds created in a lab, Habitall is a sweetener given to us by Mother Nature. Habitall can be used for cooking and baking; it tastes, measures and pours just like sugar. 1 cup of Habitall = 1 cup of sugar.
ERYTHRITOL is a naturally occurring sweetener found in some fruits, vegetables, and fermented foods. Habit Foods erythritol is made from a natural fermentation process of cultured sugar. Erythritol is noncaloric, does not affect blood sugar, and does not cause tooth decay. In the body, erythritol is absorbed into the bloodstream in the small intestine, and does not normally cause laxative effects, as are often experienced after consumption of other sugar alcohols.
POLYDEXTROSE is a form of soluble fiber derived from naturally occurring starch in plants. It has shown healthful prebiotic benefits. Prebiotic fiber such as polydextrose stimulate growth and activity of bacteria in the digestive system in ways that can aid digestive health.

Monk fruit powder is made from the fruit's dehydrated juice and is three hundred times sweeter than sugar. It has been used in China for millennium as a natural low-calorie sweetener to treat diabetes and obesity.
