0:31 Sugar alcohol sweeteners and the glycemic index
2:00 Key takeaways

In this video, we’re going to talk about ketosis and sugar alcohol sweeteners. Many of you have been curious about how sugar alcohol sweeteners affect ketosis. So let’s take a look at these alternative sweeteners.

Let’s start by looking at where these sugar alcohol sweeteners are on the glycemic index. The higher the number, the worse it is for your health and staying in ketosis.

Maltodextrin – 110
Glucose – 100
Sucrose – 65
High-fructose corn syrup – 58
Honey – 50
Maltitol – 35
Xylitol – 12
Sorbitol – 9
Mannitol – 2
Erythritol – 1
Monk fruit – 0
Stevia – 0

Although high-fructose corn syrup is lower compared to maltodextrin, it can be even worse because it messes with your liver and causes insulin resistance. Avoid it at all costs!

I typically use xylitol. This is my favorite because it doesn’t have a bad aftertaste.

Everything below xylitol is going to be fine while on keto.
