We use xylitol in this recipe because it doesn’t crystallize like other sweeteners when it cools down. You can replace the xylitol with Swerve or monk fruit but remember it will harden as it cools.

It is important to note that xylitol is toxic to dogs. Do not share your sugar-free teriyaki sauce with your furry friend.
