Naturally Sweet Xylitol - Looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, only good for your health.
How can something that looks like sugar and tastes like sugar actually be good for you? Naturally Sweet Xylitol is made from a product originally derived from birch bark but is now usually obtained from corn. It modifies the saliva in your mouth so that eating meals, desserts and candies flavoured with Xylitol not only do not cause cavities but prevents cavities by promoting the remineralisation of tooth enamel. BUT AS IMPORTANTLY, every teaspoon of Naturally Sweet Xylitol also contains 40% fewer calories than sugar! It is also so slowly absorbed that it has almost no effect on blood sugar levels for people who have diabetes. So why would you not use it?
Naturally Sweet Xylitol is sourced from one of the world's major suppliers and actually meets pharmaceutical standards and is, like all of our products, certified as GMO free!
Our Xylitol has the following benefits:

- Tastes just like sugar - but better!

What is the carbohydrate content compared to sugar?
Xylitol contains the same amount of carbohydrates as "normal" table sugar. On some nutrition panels however, Xylitol is shown to have 75% fewer carbohydrates as sugar since its content can be classed as “unavailable carbohydrates”. This is because most of the Xylitol eaten passes through to the lower intestine and is not converted to glucose. Therefore only one quarter of the weight of Xylitol can be counted as carbohydrate. Some nutrition panels subtract sugar alcohols completely from the carbohydrate count. For the sake of complete transparency we include the full potential amount of carbohydrates on out nutrition panels.
