    Default Erythritol as a sweetener in liquids

    Has anyone tried or heard of anyone trying erythritol as a sweetener in liquids? This sugar substitute is a byproduct of the fermentation process of sugar, says it does not promote tooth decay and won't raise blood sugar.

    But will it caramelize, and clog coils ? Erythitol is sugar alcohol. Hopefully it would vaporize clean. It's worth a shot I guess.

    I just started getting into DIY and thought a different sweetener might not only vape well, but also taste better than others on the market. Yeah, I guess I can try a bottle and see what happens.

    Will do, and I will likely try it in a few different recipes to get a better idea of how it works with different flavors.

    I have coincidentally just been trying to research alternative sweeteners for my DIY juices. I just finished reading about sugar alcohols. Here is a link that discusses erythritol and compares it to xylitol if you're interested. Xylitol vs Erythritol Xylitol Fresh Blog
    It says both do not caramelize, I know xylitol doesn't, I've never used erythritol.
    I have been looking for other sweeteners because my favorite premixed juice tastes really good, like candy, when you put a drop on your tongue and my DIY's do not, so I know there must be some other options out there.
    I just ordered crystal EM and sucralose, hoping mixing it myself will yield a better taste than the premixed liquid versions. I find EM to have a strange chemical taste I particularly don't like, or at least the premixed liquid EM I have does.
    I have heard people mention agave as an option, but I know that corn syrup gunks up coils so I assume agave may do the same.

    Ive been using it for the last week or so, its very sweet with no chemical taste. No signs of clogging so far.

    Health food/vitamin stores sell it in powder and liquid form. I did the same thing by dissolving nectresse crystals 1/2 pack in 10ml of propylene glycol. Push through syringe packed with organic cotton. Mix at 1-2%. The nectresse crystals had a slightly darker taste, so I opted for the liquid. Erythritol and xylitol are both used in nasal mists.
