Erythritol or Xylitol in LA?

  • 7

Where can I buy these sugar substitutes, preferably in bulk? Supposedly Whole Foods carries them but I couldn't find it at the one across from Farmer's Market on Fairfax.

  1. Try Low Carb-u on Melrose -- I thought they would be out of business by now, but apparently not.

    1. You might also try (or call) Healthy Discounts on Ventura at Van Nuys.

      Or Healthy Mart Lo-Carb on Van Nuys just south of the 101.

      I know TJ's has stevia, and you might inquire about xylitol... if they don't carry it, they might consider it!

      1. I know I saw xylatol in the corner of my eye when I was at the Marukai market in Little Tokyo yesterday. You could call beforehand to make sure.

        Or you could try just googling it and buying over the internet.

        1. Thanks all for the great leads. It looks like the place on Melrose has the size I wanted, and I happen to be going to Marukai tomorrow, so I'll try those two first.

            Check near the cash registers, that's where I saw it, or at least I think I saw it! (I really hope I saw xylatol and not a xylaphone.)

          2. Nature Mart on Hillhurst has it but the best place to buy sugar substitutes is on the internet, Google it and you will get lots of choices with prices that include shipping that are better than what you will pay for in the store

              Good idea, it's just that I wanted to make something this weekend. But long term the net sounds like the best source.
