Xylitol

 


xylitol id 15985Xylitol is a sugar alcohol sweetener used as a naturally occurring sugar substitute. It is found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables. It looks, feels and tastes exactly like white sugar with no unpleasant aftertaste.

  • Safe for diabetics; as it is absorbed more slowly than sugar and does not contribute to high blood sugar levels or "spikes" in the insulin levels.
  • Has 40% less calories and 75% fewer carbohydrates.
  • Particularly good in preventing tooth decay, and other bacterial infections.
  • Do not use in baking that requires yeast, for example baking bread. The xylitol will attract the yeast but then destroy it.
