Notes:
Caution: Xylitol requires a brief period of tolerance adjustment. It is suggested that xylitol be used in gradually increasing portions over a period of three to six weeks before it is entirely substituted for common sugar. Xylitol will not cause breads and pastries to rise and is not a good choice for hard candies since it will not crystallize when heated. Not recommended for pets.

Miscellaneous Information:

 

What is Xylitol? Xylitol is the name for a naturally occurring sugar polyol commonly derived from corn stalks and birch trees. It is m uch like many other 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.
