How It Works:
Xylitol looks and tastes like table sugar, but it’s a natural, low-calorie, low-carb substitute. Its remarkable properties stem from its unique molecular structure. Most sugar-like molecules have a six-carbon “hexose” unit. Xylitol is a five-carbon “pentitol” sugar. Because of its distinctive arrangement of atoms, bacteria cannot utilize it for energy. This chemical structure inhibits the ability of our bodies to fully metabolize it as well. For this reason, xylitol has a limited effect on blood sugar levels. Its low glycemic index of 7 makes it a terrific solution for carb-counters as well as those trying to lose weight.
100% pure xylitol without any corn residue.
Xylitol can be substituted for table sugar and other sweeteners without compromising taste or texture. It may take a few days for the body to become accustomed to digesting xylitol; until that time it is recommended that xylitol be gradually introduced into the diet over a period of a few weeks. Xylitol can be used to sweeten foods and beverages or in cooking and baking. Because xylitol does not ferment or crystallize, it cannot be used to replace table sugar in some bread and candy recipes. Unlike sugar, xylitol can be left on the teeth overnight. To obtain the maximum dental benefits of xylitol, use 4–12 grams each day.
CAUTION: This product and other products containing xylitol must not be given to pets.

What is Xylitol? Xylitol is the name for a naturally occurring sugar polyol commonly derived from corn stalks and birch trees. It is much like many common sugars, but with a significant difference – the molecule contains only 5 carbon atoms rather than the 6 of most other sugars. This molecular difference is the key to xylitol’s beneficial qualities,
both as a food ingredient and in both medical and dental applications. A delicious, low-calorie sweetener: Xylitol has all the sweetness of table sugar, yet has 40% fewer
calories and 0g of sugar. Xylitol is an ideal alternative sweetener in foods prepared for weight loss or for anyone concerned about the overuse of sugar in their diet.
Diabetic friendly: Xylitol is metabolized without insulin so it creates a significantly lower glycemic effect when eaten — a glycemic index of only 7. Good news for diabetics!
Dental benefits: Xylitol inhibits the ability of bacteria to adhere to tissues in the mouth and cannot be metabolized by bacteria, thus drastically slowing the process that creates harmful, enamel-eating acids.
