XyliSmart xylitol is a healthy sugar substitute. It may reduce the risk of tooth decay in the mouth, which is promoted through frequent consumption of in-between-meal snacks that are high in sugar and starches. XyliSmart xylitol is known as a low-glycemic index (GI) sweetener due to its slow absorption into the bloodstream, which does not result in rapid changes in blood glucose concentrations. XyliSmart xylitol looks and tastes as sweet as sugar, but with less calories and without any of the downside of sugar, and delivers a cool, refreshing aftertaste.
As a sugar substitute, add in amounts satisfactory to your taste. For optimal anti-cavity benefits, take 1 teaspoon 3 to 5 times per day.
100% pure xylitol (from birch tree).
Caution: If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or breastfeeding, consult your health care professional before using this product. If abdominal discomfort or diarrhea develops, reduce dosage or discontinue use.
Store in a cool, dry place.
Do not use if either tamper-evident seal is broken or missing. Keep out of the reach of children.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This product comes with an outer shrink wrap and inner seal, however my inner seal was half way undone and off the container. There is no little scoop inside (bummer) and the product is very white, crystals about the size of granulated sugar and free-flowing. First thing that surprised me is the cooling effect without mint. This is very refreshing, very sweet, tastes even better than real sugar. I did some research: even doctor Mercola praises birch xylitol. Then I went to see what Ramiel Nagel had to say about this. Let's just say it's not positive and echoes my suspicions. Is my intuition right? Is he? Can this product truly cause more enamel damage? It would be so much easier to ignore my intuition's protests and blindly use this delicious product but my fear is great here. I don't want to lose any more teeth. Although I did get some other xylitol products, to put this on my teeth after brushing them seems like it would defeat the purpose. I give this 5 stars for taste and great marketing, for the rest: I'm as much in the dark as anyone else. Question everything. I hope I'm wrong; dare I find out at the expense of all my teeth? My answer is no.
I've tried to eliminate sugar from my diet, but I MUST have sugar in my morning coffee! I tried every sugar substitute on earth...until I found xylitol. It tastes just like sugar. Unlike artificial sweeteners, it has no bad aftertaste (in fact, it leaves my mouth feeling very fresh). It looks and feels like sugar. I've used every day for 3 years now and have nothing but good things to say! Start with one or two servings per day and increase slowly, as it can have a laxative effect.
