Keto Sweeteners in Australia: The 2024 Shopper’s Guide

Fantastic news for everyone considering a ketogenic diet: low carb eating doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your favourite sweets. There are more and more keto sweeteners in Australian stores now, and many of them are so good, you won’t be able to tell the difference. Struggling to give up desserts is one of the biggest reasons people don’t stick to keto long-term, but with such a variety of keto sweeteners in Australia, there’s no reason you can’t have your low carb cake and eat it too.


Low-calorie sweeteners have a bad reputation, particularly among health-conscious communities. In reality, the category has come a long way from just aspartame and sucralose. There are plenty of natural low carb sweeteners on the market, and not all of them are sugar alcohols, either. This article will help you discover all your options and where to buy keto sweeteners.

If you’re looking for keto sweeteners in Australia, you can now find them in leading supermarkets such as Coles and Woolworths. Low carb sweeteners are also available in health food stores and online, through retailers such as Amazon Australia, iHerb and eBay. These include popular options like allulose, erythritol and monk fruit sweeteners. Many brands offer a blend of these ingredients to imitate sugar more accurately.

Let’s explore each type of sweetener, with a quick summary of everything you need to know and where to purchase them. Keep reading for a convenient summary of the best sugar substitutes in Australia.

Grocery Store

Where to Buy Allulose in Australia


Allulose is currently not approved by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), so it can’t be sold or purchased in Australian stores. However, allulose can be ordered online from iHerb Australia, eBay or Amazon stores.


See below for some online stores shipping allulose to Australian customers.


Does Coles Sell Allulose?

Unfortunately, allulose isn't currently approved for sale in Australia, despite its widespread popularity in the USA and Japan. Leading allulose sweetener brands, such as Dolcia Prima, have been available for up to five years internationally. However, without approval from Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), it isn't yet stocked in Coles.


Does Woolworths Sell Allulose?


Similar to Coles, Woolworths does not sell allulose at the moment. No doubt the major supermarkets will be on board once allulose is approved by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ). Until then, allulose sweeteners like Dolcia Prima aren't available for purchase in Australia.

On keto forums and discussion boards, members have also reported that allulose is available in Australia via Amazon or eBay.


Both the Splenda Allulose Plant Based Zero Calorie Sweetener and Sweet Nature Allulose Sweetener can be purchased from Amazon Australia.

Where to buy Dolcia Prima in Australia


Unfortunately, as allulose is not currently approved for sale in Australia, Dolcia Prima, the most popular allulose brand, is not stocked in any Australian stores. This means you won't find Dolcia Prima at Woolworths, Coles or Aldi Australia.


There is currently no news on when it will be available, but there are definitely many of us looking forward to its arrival!


Best Substitute for Allulose


The flavour of allulose is reported to be the most similar to sugar. However, if you can't get your hands on allulose in Australia, what's the next best alternative?


A blend of erythritol and monk fruit is definitely the most similar to allulose. It can also be used 1:1 in cooking and baking for a reliable result. You can see some of the erythritol and monk fruit sweeteners available in Australia below.


If you are wanting allulose so you can make ice cream, the best substitute is xylitol as it doesn't recrystallise like the other sweeteners do.

Where to Buy Erythritol in Australia


Unlike allulose, it's easy to buy erythritol in Australia, both in supermarkets and online. Erythritol sweeteners can be purchased in Coles and Woolworths stores across Australia, as well as health food stores and online stores.


Erythritol is a plant-based sweetener that is incredibly common in keto recipes. It may be classified as a 'sugar alcohol', but don't get confused, as erythritol does not contain alcohol. This label refers to the molecular structure of the granulated sweetener.


Being fantastic for baking, erythritol is commonly found in commercial keto products, such as Low Carb Life Lemonlicious Slice Keto Bake Mix . It’s also just as handy for home baking, as long as you know how much erythritol to use.


Erythritol is not as sweet as sugar, meaning you need to use 1/2 to 1/3 more if you're substituting erythritol. Of course, the perfect sweetness level is always subjective, so you can add more or less to taste.


Erythritol by itself is an effective sweetener, but 100% erythritol tends to have a ‘cool’ taste, and not everyone enjoys it. That’s why it’s commonly mixed with a little allulose, stevia or monk fruit sweetener, balancing out the flavour and making it taste more like sugar. That's why many erythritol products on the market contain a small percentage of one of these additions.


Whole Earth Monk Fruit Granules is a fantastic brand which combines erythritol with monkfruit extract, and is made from all-natural ingredients.


However, 100% erythritol sweeteners are still available on the market if you don’t mind the aftertaste or prefer to mix your own keto sweetener blend.


Does Coles Sell Erythritol?


Yes, Coles sells a range of erythritol sweeteners, many of which also include monkfruit extract. Brands of erythritol sweetener include Coles home brand, Whole Earth, Natvia and Lakanto.

Where to Buy Erythritol Online in Australia


Erythritol sweeteners can be ordered online from brands such as PBCo, Sukrin, as well as health food and keto stores like Yoketo and Keto Direct. This includes bulk erythritol sweetener perfect for baking.


Erythritol sweeteners available to buy online in Australia include:


This pure erythritol sweetener is available to buy from the PBCo website. The good news is that erythritol is all-natural, keto-friendly, gluten-free, and extremely versatile in the kitchen. I frequently use erythritol in my own recipes, and it delivers an enjoyable sweetness in just about everything.


However, erythritol alone doesn't mimic sugar's flavour as closely as some other low carb sweetener blends. A small amount of monk fruit extract or stevia is typically added for a more well-rounded taste. Particularly if you're cooking for non-keto eaters, you may be better off sticking with a blended sweetener.


Compared to erythritol products available in Australian supermarkets, this sweetener is excellent value, and the product also stores well long-term. If your sweetener does clump up a little over time, use a Thermomix or other high-powered blender to break it up again.


Price: $14.95 per 600g ($2.49 per 100g)


Pros:

- Very affordable

- Extremely low-calorie content

- No aftertaste


Cons:

- Cannot be bought in supermarkets

Price: $20.99 per 500g ($4.18 per 100g)

While it technically contains 99.4g grams of carbohydrates per 100g, this number can be a bit deceptive - the body doesn't metabolise polyols, so it functions just like a zero carb sweetener.


With a 1:1 ratio, Natvia Monk Fruit sweetener is easy to measure, whether you're making a cup of coffee, iced tea, or baking.

Where to Buy Xylitol in Australia


Xylitol isn’t currently stocked at Coles, Woolworths or Aldi in Australia. However, you can buy xylitol online in Australia from a range of online health food stores, including Yoketo, iHerb Australia, and The Source bulk foods.


Xylitol is another sugar alcohol that’s increasingly popular among keto and low carb communities. It’s been common for years in sugar free mints and chewing gums, particularly as it helps to encourage oral health and prevent tooth decay. Now that there’s greater demand for low carb natural sweeteners, xylitol is popping up in a broader range of products, and is also available for purchase in powdered form.


If you’re making sugar free or keto ice cream, powdered xylitol is the best sweetener to use - other options can give you an icy result, whereas xylitol stays creamy and smooth once frozen. Xylitol is a good substitute for allulose in many recipes, given that the latter is hard to find in Australia.


Does Coles Sell Xylitol?


Unfortunately, Coles does not currently sell xylitol yet. Unlike allulose, xylitol is a permitted food product in Australia. However, it hasn't become commonplace yet.

However, xylitol does have more health benefits, such as boosting dental health and preventing cavities.



Related Questions:


Is Maple Syrup Keto-Friendly?


Maple syrup is not keto-friendly. Maple syrup is high in both carbs and sugar, so it's not easy to fit into a keto meal plan.

Luckily, there are keto-friendly syrup options, allowing you to enjoy delicious keto pancakes at home. Lakanto Maple Flavoured Syrup is a good example of a keto-friendly maple syrup substitute, readily available at Woolworths in Australia.


Is Chicory Root Sweetener Keto-Friendly?


Yes, chicory root sweeteners are considered keto-friendly. In fact, a lot of people prefer extracted chicory root sweeteners over stevia because it does not have the same bitter aftertaste.

Chicory root fibre comes from the chicory root plant. Once extracted, it turns into light and fluffy powder with a sweet flavour, making it an excellent sugar substitute. Aside from being low on carbs, chicory root sweeteners are also good for your gut and digestion.

If you are on a strict keto diet, chicory root also adds fibre to your diet, which can be very good for your colon.
