Do I count Erythritol as a part of my Carbs?
It has Carbs will this take me out of ketosis and should it be counted as a part of my Carb intake?
No, erythritol does not have any digestible carbohydrate and will not take you out of ketosis. Subtract sugar alcohols from your total carbohydrate intake when counting carbs.
Thank you again Nicole! that's such a relief. Iv been really wanting to buy some Erythritol to make bulletproof desserts so im really happy to know I don't have to worry about it.
Wait, so can you flavor your morning coffee with it during Fasting?
well if it doesn't raise insulin, I would imagine so. stevia should be safe I think too. As long as they are both pure and not mixed with anything artificial or like flavourings.
@Abe_R That is correct. Erythritol has about 0.2 kcal per gram and negligible carbohydrate. Therefore, you can put it in your Bulletproof coffee during your Bulletproof fasting window and it will not kick you out of ketosis/interrupt the fat fast. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
