A healthy, natural sweetener
Pure Xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables and produced in small amounts by the human body. For commercial use, it is manufactured from xylan hemicellulose sources such as Birch trees, cane bagasse and corn cobs/stalks. It is the sweetest of the polyols with the same sweetness as sugar (sucrose) but with 40% fewer calories and none of the negative tooth decay or insulin release effects of sugar.
Classified on labels as a carbohydrate, Xylitol has been used in foods since the 1960s and is approved in the U.S. as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes and is safe for use by those with diabetes or hypoglycemia.
Over 25 years of testing clinical testing confirms that Xylitol is the best sweetener for teeth. Its use has been shown to reduce instances of tooth decay by up to 80%. Sugarfree chewing gums and candies made with this sweetener have already received official endorsements from six national dental associations.
