This is a great value way to buy Erythritol. I package this using my vacuum sealer into 5kg bags to keep fresh and this will last me a year. I then blend it in my thermomix with Sweetleaf Organic Stevia 97% (1tspn per cup of Erythritol) and this makes a much more economic way of baking as it is around double strength of sugar so I use much less and still get a great taste. Perfect for sugar free baking. (Posted on 16/07/2017)
