By Now Foods211 Reviews
Expiration Date: Sep 2019
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

There's a lot to like about Xylitol. This naturally-occurring sugar alcohol is one of the healthiest and most unique sweeteners you'll find. Unlike sugars such as sucrose and fructose, NOW Real Food Xylitol is a sugar alcohol, which doesn't promote tooth decay. Even though it's classified as a carbohydrate, it has a low glycemic impact due to its slow absorption in the digestive tract, and its caloric impact is around 1/3 lower than other carbohydrates, making Xylitol a healthy sweetener that's hard to beat.
Because you are what you eat, NOW Real Food has been committed to providing delicious, healthy, natural and organic foods since 1968. We're independent, family owned, and proud of it. Keep it natural. Keep it real.
NOW Real Food Pure Xylitol Powder is derived from corn and is the perfect healthy substitute for sugar in many cooking applications.
Pure xylitol powder.
Caution: Diarrhea may occur with excessive consumption. If this happens, reduce intake or discontinue use.
Note: Do not feed xylitol to dogs or other pets.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I am a Professional Chef, I use it in my cooking instead of sugar. Taste exactly like sugar but a diabetic can eat it. It does not need Insulin to break it down because of it's carbon link. I also use it as mouth wash, because it kills all the bacteria in your mouth and stomach when you eat it. Our body makes 11g of Xylitol every day and it taste exactly like sugar. So, when we put sugar in the mouth our body thinks it is Xylitol. That's why we get addicted to sugar. You can see I made extensive study on it. By far it is the best sugar substitute which is actually good for our body. I wish prices would go down a little. I believe more people know about it price will go down as they sell more.

I have been purchasing Xylitol for quite some time from USA manufacturers, using USA grown birch trees, with great satisfaction. Recently I was frustrated with that manufacturer's shipping prices, so I decided to go with i-herb. I am very disappointed in the quality of this product. It is sticky and tastes funny. Pay a few bucks more for shipping and stick with American made Xylitol. Update: iHerb does carry American made xylitol! Emerald Forest Xylitol is the name. It's 100% American made from American grown and harvested birch trees...and the shipping with iHerb is MUCH less expensive than from Emerald Forest's website. THANK YOU iHERB FOR CARRYING SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT AT A GREAT PRICE!!!
