So What is Xylitol?
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. Xylitol is only slowly absorbed and partially utilized; therefore allowing a reduced calorie claim, 2.4 calories per gram or 40% less than other carbohydrates and none of the negative tooth decay or insulin release effects of sugar. It also has a low glycemic index (7) and has little effect on blood sugar levels. In addition, the body does not require insulin to metabolize xylitol, which has made it a widely used sweetener for the diabetic diet in some countries. In the U.S., xylitol is approved as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes.
The Benefits of Xylitol
- 40% fewer calories than sucrose & found naturally in many common fruits & veggies
- Produced by our own body so it’s a safe alternative to risky sugar-free products
- Xylitol is alkaline-enhancing vs. sugar’s acid-forming so bacteria cannot use it for energy
- Scientific research confirms that Xylitol can improve dental health & it tastes good!
- Results have shown it doesn’t increase blood sugar levels
- It is healthy
