Sugar Alcohol Side Effects
Moderation is key – ESPECIALLY when eating low carb candy! You guys, sugar alcohol side effects are real. Let’s let this funny sugar alcohol meme speak for itself (and don’t you dare miss our diet memes!)
While these low carb candy recipes are delicious, if you overeat – chances are that you will pay for it. Let’s talk about sugar alcohol and the side effects that come along with eating too much sugar free candy.
Sugar alcohols are carbohydrates that are not fully digested by our bodies.
What is Sugar Alcohol
Sugar alcohols are organic compounds that are derived from sugars. They are white, water-soluble solids that can occur naturally or be produced industrially from sugars. They are used as thickeners and sweeteners, commonly used in place of table sugar.
Side Effects of Sugar Alcohol
So those sugar alcohol side effects that we were talking about. Yes – too much consumption of sugar alcohol can lead to bloating and diarrhea.
We actually wrote a post, Can I get diarrhea on Keto? to help you understand why diarrhea and keto, plus sugar alcohol is something you need to know about.
And when we say diarrhea – we mean, watch out – stay near a toilet – be prepared to crap your pants if you ingest too much sugar alcohol.
Examples of Sugar Alcohol – Artificial Sweeteners
In the keto candy and low carb candy recipes we listed above, you will find several of these examples of sugar alcohol included. You want to use sugar alcohols that don’t count toward net carbs.
Best Keto Sugar Alcohol
Sugar alcohols that don’t count toward net carbs are erythritol, xylitol, mannitol, and lactitol. These sugar alcohol options are best because they have a minimal (if at all) spike in blood sugar. The best keto sugar alcohol options are erythritol and xylitol.
