History of Xylitol

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. The Finnish name for Xylitol is "koivusokeri", or birch sugar, a reference to the extraction of Xylitol from birch bark. NOW Pure Xylitol is derived from a Non-GMO corn source. Considerable amounts of Xylitol is formed in the body every day as a result of normal metabolic processes. Although it is classified as a carbohydrate, this sweet crystalline substance is slowly absorbed from the digestive tract and does not cause rapid rises in blood glucose. In addition, the caloric impact of Xylitol is typically about 40% lower than other carbohydrates, making it a healthy addition to any diet.

Discovered simultaneously by French and German chemists in 1891, Xylitol has been safely used since the 1970's as an ingredient in gums and candies. Dentists and Nutritionists alike encourage the use of Xylitol due to its unique and clinically proven dental benefits. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be utilized by bacteria in the mouth. Xylitol... a safe alternative for your sweet tooth.

Excellent Product

Posted by Reviewer2594410 on Aug 16, 2009

Tried this in drinks and on breakfast cerials such as cornflakes. I love it. I try to avoid anything with sugar in it and this makes it possible. Tastes great, nice crystals almost identical to white sugar (Without the harmful effects) and has a slight salty taste. It's really unique. Give it a try and give it to your friends :)

Tastes just like sugar!

Posted by Reviewer1222549 on Jan 21, 2010

Tastes good, just not as sweet as sugar but I don't mind that. I love the convenient packages.

not very sweet

Posted by Reviewer1042322 on Aug 28, 2010

I am concerned about my sugar intake so I ordered this product to sweeten my coffee, tea, and cereal. I have to use several packets to satisfy my taste.

need too many to sweeten

Posted by Reviewer1652842 on Feb 13, 2012

I appreciate that it's natural but I personally need 4 packets to come close to being as sweet as Splenda. And of course those packets are maddening to open. Really have to get used to the taste also.
