Product Description: Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. The Finnish name for xylitol is 'koivusokeri', or birch sugar, a reference to the extraction of xylitol from birch bark. Considerable amounts of xylitol are formed in the body every day as a result of normal metabolic processes. Although it is classified as a carbohydrate, this sweet crystalline substance is slowly absorbed from the digestive tract and does not cause rapid rises in blood glucose. In addition, the caloric impact of xylitol is typically about 40% lower than other carbohydrates, making it a healthy addition to any diet.
Discovered simultaneously by French and German scientists in 1891, xylitol has been safely used since the 1970's as an ingredient in gums and candies due to its unique and clinically proven dental benefits. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be utilized by bacteria in the mouth. More recent research in laboratory animals has also shown that xylitol may support healthy bones. The xylitol in this product is derived from a corn source. Stevia Extract is a dietary supplement.
