Does adding erythritol to green/ black tea reduced it's antioxidants?

Does adding erythritol to green/ black tea reduced it's antioxidants?

No evidence,However:: Erythritol may be the safest natural sweetener available. I know of no evidence it reduces antioxidants in tea. See http://authoritynutrition.com/erythritol/ HOWEVER, if you're drinking tea with erythritol it's probably bottled tea which only has a tiny fraction of the antioxidants in home-brewed tea.So avoid bottled tea but you can add erythritol to home-brewed tea.

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?

Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause.

If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read more
