Created completely safe sugar

Austrian scientists have synthesized a harmless sugar. The product is a special form of natural sweetener (erythritol), which does not provoke the development of obesity and dental caries.

Overall, erythritol has long been known, however, its receipt was quite expensive. Scientists were able to greatly simplify and cheapen the process. In particular, for obtaining erythritol was used as the chemical properties of a special type of mold. The resulting sweetener for sweets 80% corresponds to the usual sugar.
