Has anyone ever tried powdering erythritol in a Vitamix?

Instead of a coffee grinder?

I do it all the time. Works great with the regular container. Fill it 1/2 way, turn it on high, and tamp it down. It probably takes less than a minute.

And then let it sit and settle down for a few minutes or you'll be greeted with a cloud of airborn sweetness!

Yes, I do know from personal experience.

I'm imagining it might also be done in a small coffee grinder. I occasionally cook with sugar (for others) and when I need superfine sugar I put some in a little grinder I keep for anything other than coffee. After a count of 3, the sugar is nearly powdered.
