Xylitol looks and tastes like sugar. It has the same texture and sweetness, but is actually a unique non-glycemic sweetener
with 40% less calories than sugar. Unlike other sugar substitutes, Xylitol has no aftertaste.
Xylitol is an effective sugar-free sweetener that actually works to normalize blood sugar. Xylitol
is a recommended sugar substitute for those on an anti-candida diet or for those with serious health concerns. Use it just like sugar, in equal quantities.
Xylitol was discovered in 1891 by German chemist, Emil Fischer, and has been used as a sweetening agent since the 1960's. Xylitol is a substance that occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables, and in fact, is produced in small amounts (5-15 grams per day) in the human body during normal metabolism.
Xylitol enjoys wide acceptance in Japan, Finland, and the Scandinavian countries. In the Soviet Union, it has been used for decades as a sweetener for diabetics, and in Germany it is used in solutions for intravenous feeding. Numerous clinical and field studies performed over the past 30 years have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of Xylitol as a healthy alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners.
