Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. It was originally extracted from birch trees in Finland. NOW Xylitol is derived from Non-GMS corn. It is comparable to xylitol derived fromothersources, such as birch. It resembles sugar in consistency and taste, but has a third fewer calories and is a great sugar alternative for diabetics. Xylitol may also inhibit cavities by denying plaque bacteria the fuel (sugar) it needs to erode tooth enamel. It can be used as a sugar substitute in most sugar-free recipes.
Diarrhea may occur with excessive consumption. If this happens, reduce intake or discontinue use. Xylitol is safe for people, but harmful to dogs. Do not feed to pets.
