What Puts the Sweet in Swerve?
The secret to Swerve’s zero-calorie sweetness is a combination of erythritol and oligosaccharides.
If you’ve ever visited a brewery, you’ve gotten a peek into how fermentation works. Erythritol is made by fermenting glucose with Moniliella pollinis, a natural microorganism. It also naturally occurs in many fruits and vegetables like melons, grapes and asparagus. Erythritol is classified by the FDA as a zero-calorie, 4-carbon sugar alcohol that does not affect blood glucose.
Oligosaccharides are sweet, non-digestible carbohydrates sourced from select fruits and starchy root vegetables. Oligosaccharides are prebiotic fibers, so they’re not only tasty, but they can help stimulate beneficial bacteria in your gut.

Browns & Caramelizes
One of the unique functions of Swerve is its ability to brown and caramelize like sugar. Even when making Crème Brule, you can get a crunchy, tasty torched crust. Swerve also performs extremely well in meringues, allowing you to accomplish a stiff peak. Use Swerve just like you would sugar for recipes that require caramelizing.
If you’re looking for a keto friendly sweetener, Swerve is your go-to. With zero net carbohydrates, Swerve does not impact blood sugar or insulin levels. You can use it easily in all of your low-carb baking and cooking recipes without the worry of a blood sugar spike. Just like fiber, when counting macros you can subtract any Swerve that is used in your recipe to get a true net carb count.
Measures Just Like Sugar
When it comes to baking and cooking, Swerve is the easiest and tastiest sugar replacement to use. Cup-for-cup, Swerve replaces sugar in all of your recipes. If you need a half cup of sugar; simply replace with a half cup of Swerve. And you won’t get any bitter aftertaste that is often associated with high intensity sweeteners like stevia and monkfruit.
