Xylitol – a Healthy and Natural Way to Sweeten – and More!

Xylitol is a natural sweet-tasting alcohol sugar derived from woody, fibrous plant materials, and many fruits and vegetables. Xylitol is used as a sweetener in foods, and  it can be used in baking as well.

Xylitol:

  • Looks and feels like sugar and it tastes good!
  • Has 40% fewer calories than sugar
  • Can be used by diabetes sufferers as a sugar substitute because of its minimal effect on blood sugar

And it has health benefits as well!

  • Improves dental health by actually killing cavity-causing bacteria and inhibiting plaque and is added to candy and chewing gum to prevent tooth decay
  • When added to a nasal spray, it aids in the clearing of mucous reducing the incidence of sinus and upper respiratory infections
  • It has been shown to reduce the incidence of middle ear infections in children
  • Possibly strengthening bones reducing the risk of osteoporosis

Throw away your sugar and artificial sweeteners – use Xylitol instead!

      Thanks for the comment! You can get it on the Puritan’s Pride website in 2.5 lb packages. Right now there’s a discount price and free shipping. I use it on my coffee and on my fruit!

    Best of all xylitol has all the taste of table sugar (sucrose) and none of its disadvantages. It is actually GOOD for your teeth because it reduces mouth acid levels, prevents plaque formation and kills the oral bacteria responsible for much of our tooth decay! I love it!
