Xylitol is a sweetener derived from plants that is not harmful like artificial sweeteners. It tastes like sugar but has 40% fewer calories (one teaspoon supplies 9.6 calories), so it’s ideal as part of a weight management programme. Xylitol can be used to sweeten drinks, desserts and cooking (but it can not be used to activate yeast). It has a low glycaemic index (GI) so it has minimal impact on blood glucose levels. Xylitol is suitable for diabetics and candida sufferers. It may also help maintain teeth free of decay.
Our pure xylitol is from Birch trees. It is supplied in our food-grade tubs/buckets and follows our 'No Frills' policy to ensure you great value!
