NuNaturals pure Xylitol (pronounced zi-li-tol) is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. Xylitol is classified broadly as a carbohydrate and more narrowly as a polyol. Xylitol is not actually a sugar, but a sugar alcohol. It is different from sweeteners such as fructose, sorbitol, and glucose because the xylitol molecule has five, instead of six, carbon atoms. Xylitol is slowly absorbed and partially utilized, 40% less than other carbohydrates. Xylitol has been used in foods since the 1960s. In the U.S., Xylitol is approved as a food additive for foods with special dietary purposes. Xylitol does not promote tooth decay.
Our bodies produce up to 15 grams of xylitol from other food sources using established energy pathways. Xylitol is not an artificial substance, but a normal part of everyday metabolism. Xylitol is widely distributed throughout nature in small amounts. Some of the best sources are fruits, berries, mushrooms, lettuce, hardwoods, and corn cobs.
Add 1-2 teaspoons when needed directly in your favorite food or beverage.

I've tried most of the Xylitol crystal products at IHERB and this is probably the best value for money. Although it is a bit dusty when poured, it is dry and free-flowing. I recommend it.
Not that sweet

I'm using this as a sweetener in a tooth powder. It has a subtle sweetness and is working out well.

I will not buy this brand again, taste is not good, I will buy Xyloburst and Xylismart, they taste MUCH better than this one.

I bought xylitol in order to make my own toothpaste (which until then had an unpleasant salty taste) and I am really happy about the result. Of course if I keep on using it only for toothpaste it will last for years :p PS: I was very satisfied with international shipping, you can trust iHerb!
