Since 20 years, scientists from all over the world have researched the tolerability and positive effects of erythritol, the raw material of Biosüße. We have compiled the most interesting studies out of scientific magazines for you.

New study in Nature Medicine.

Does erythritol increase the risk of cardiovascular disease?


Biosüße has no harmful side effects.

The natural sugar alcohol is harmless and tested for over 25 years


Biosüße is suitable for diabetics.

Biosüße has no effect on blood sugar levels and pancreatic insulin secretion. Its glycaemic index is zero.




Biosüße contains no calories.

Biosüße is almost completely absorbed in the small intestine and excreted unchanged via the kidneys. Biosüße does not nourish the body with energy like other sugar alcohols such as birch sugar, xylitol, or maltitol do. In normal amounts it does not cause the known side-effects such as diarrhoea or unpleasant flatulence.


Biosüße has an antioxidant effect.

Biosüße has an antioxidant effect and protects the blood vessels from damages caused by high blood sugar levels. Therefore, Biosüße is beneficial for prevention as well as during the treatment of diabetics.


Biosüße is tooth-friendly.

Biosüße is not nourishing bacteria that appear in the mouth and is reducing the risk of tooth decay. Additionally it influences the formation of plaque: Biosüße makes it difficult for plaque bacteria to adhere to the teeth. It is as positive for your dental health and mineralisation as birch sugar or xylitol.



Biosüße is ideal for diabetics and all who are figure conscious.

Biosüße increases the intestinal hormones secretion and has a retarding effect on gastric emptying. A retarding gastric emptying contributes to a faster satiety. In contrast to birch sugar (xylitol) Biosüße (erythritol) has no effect on the glycose- and insulin levels.
