One of the best alternative sweeteners, the Health Connection Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is extracted from plants and fruits that are natural xylan-rich sources.  It is even produced by the human body during normal carbohydrate metabolism. One of the best things you can do for your health and that of your loved ones, is to switch from conventional refined sugars to natural alternatives – which is easy to do with Xylitol as it has the same sweetness and bulk as sucrose but with 40% less calories and no aftertaste.

  • The glycaemic index (a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar) of Xylitol is only 7, compared to regular sugar -which has a glycaemic index of 60-70.
  • It is an excellent alternative to sugar for people with diabetes, pre-diabetes, obesity or other metabolic problems.
  • It has a similar sweetness as regular sugar, is low G.I and has 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbs than refined white sugar.
  • An all-natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables
  • Non-GMO


The Benefits Of Xylitol as a natural sweetener:

  • Plaque, commonly caused by bacteria Streptococcus Mutans, feeds on glucose from food - but they cannot use xylitol. Eventually, the sugar metabolism in the bacteria is blocked and they literally starve to death.
  • The mouth, nose and ears are all interconnected. In much the same way as it kills plaque; Xylitol can reduce ear infections in children by fighting the yeast Candida Albicans that commonly causes ear infections.
  • Studies have shown that it increases the absorption of calcium in the digestive system, which is good for your teeth and may also protect against osteoporosis.
  • Either by replacing sugar or adding it on top of the diet, can reduce cavities and tooth decay by as much as 30-85%
  • It also appears to have prebiotic effects, feeding the friendly bacteria in the gut.



Use as a sugar substitute, either complimenting your diet or completely replacing other sugars.


Xylitol (made from non-gmo corn)


Xylitol can be highly toxic to dogs, leading to hypoglycaemia and/or liver failure. It only takes about 0.1 g/kg for a dog to be affected (less than the amount in a single stick of gum)

Xylitol is generally well tolerated in humans, but some people do get digestive side effects when they consume too much, not unlike conventional sugar.

If you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome or an intolerance to FODMAPs, then be extra careful with sugar alcohols and consider avoiding them altogether.

  • Great sweetener, once my body got used to it
    30 Mar, 2016, By Michelle When I first used this sweetener I got the runs, was about to give it away, but after the first use, I went back to it, no more runs. Worked well for me, plus I did not need to mix it with anything. I enjoyed the taste. Just like sugar.

  • Must Have

  • Good stuff
    05 Feb, 2016, By Alta The absolute best replacement for sugar. Ive tried Stevia in the meanwhile and it has the same aftertaste as canderel. Xylitol is the best with no lingering aftertaste!

  • Best sugar substitute
