Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is produced from hard wood sources, predominantly Birch and Beech. It looks and tastes the same to sugar and is interchangeable in recipes.
During production the chipped wood is subject to hydrolysis which breaks down the xylan into xylose. The xylose is then enriched, purified and crystallised before being dissolved in water and purified. Finally it is crystallised to produce high purity Xylitol.
Xylitol contains 40% less calories than cane sugar, is low GI, non GMO and is 100% natural. Used in toothpaste and chewing gum, xylitol is recommended by dentists for its ability to prevent tooth decay.
Caution: Excessive consumption may have a laxative effect.
