Description
  • 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.

Directions

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

Ingredients

Xylitol (made from non-gmo corn)

Warnings

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.

I really enjoyed this.
First time I had it, it made my tummy run a bit, but after subsequent uses, my tummy doesn't react anymore.
I'm done with sugar, I don't even miss it.

I only keep normal sugar because of guests, but I sub Xylitol in almost all my baking and the difference is hardly noticeable.

I love baking with this product. I blend it finely in my spice mill to make icing sugar.

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.

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!
