Is Erythritol a SA? I am trying to add a new food to my fitday and am not sure if I put this under alcohol or carbs.

It ends in an -ol...sounds like an alcohol to me. How much of this stuff are you using that you need to fitday it? Sugar alcohols have a terrible reputation for...um...making you loose.

I doubt you want to put sugar alcohols under alcohol. Alcohol (ethanol) would be treated as 7 cals per gram, whereas sugar alcohols have 2 cals per gram (IIRC).

but arn't surgar alcohols always diluted. they're sweeter than normal sugar so it takes less.

Hence they have 2 calories per gram versus the usual 4 calories per gram for a standard carbohydrate
