Sad News


Powdered Erythritol which I used to order from Netrition is no longer available as the manufacturer has discontinued the product. Granular Erythritol (not my first choice) can be powdered in a powerful blender, food processor, coffee grinder or something called a magic bullet. It is also a good idea to dissolve it in liquid first, as the crystals can be a problem in baking when they don't all dissolve.

It is sad news indeed. Too bad more people didn't know about this great product: Powdered Erythritol. The same story at Carbsmart. I am hoping this is only a temporary situation. There are other manufacturers of the product and I'm hoping Tom at www.Netrition.com will think to order from one of them soon. It is so convenient to order from Netrition. They are reliable and speedy.

UPDATE: Thanks to Gharkness, we now have this good news: "Netrition has already replaced their original brand of powdered erythritol and I have already received my first order. It's as good as - or better - than the original brand (not as "rocky"). Did you not get their update? This has been more than a week ago."

Here is the product I found upon searching Netrition - it comes in the granular and powdered form: Sensato Erythritol

Thank you for sharing that information. That was kind of you. No, I didn't see their update. Where was that by the way?

I was wondering if you know the brand name offhand, so that I can look it up at Netrition?

I saw the new brand but I hadn't noticed that they had discontinued the other. I bought up several bags back at the end of summer so I'd have it when the holidays got here. But I only got one powdered so I hope the new brand is just as good. I can now get the granular at my health food store, but not powdered. Thanks for the heads up,
Vikki

Vikki, maybe if you ask at the health food store, they may stock the powdered form for you? That would be so convenient. Sounds like you have a great health food store. We don't have anything wonderful here, unfortunately. The only one I know about is really not any good in comparison to the ones I frequented in Canada.
