NOW Foods Pure Xylitol
75 Packets

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts of various fruits and vegetables. The Finnish name for Xylitol is "koivusokeri", or birch sugar, a reference to the extraction of Xylitol from birch bark.  NOW Pure Xylitol is derived from a corn source.  Considerable amounts of Xylitol is 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 chemists in 1891, Xylitol has been safely used since the 1970's as an ingredient in gums and candies.  Dentists and Nutritionists alike encourage the use of Xylitol due to its unique and clinically proven dental benefits.  Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be utilized by undesirable particles in the mouth.  Xylitol...a safe alternative for your sweet tooth.

The best thing about NOW Xylitol Packets is that they can take the place of the sugar you're already using. Add it to your morning coffee, your evening tea, holiday baked goods, your most delectable desserts, or just sprinkle it on anything you'd like to sweeten naturally.

For best results, simply replace each 1/2 teaspoon of sugar with 1 convenient Xylitol packet to enjoy the reduced calorie sweetness that nature intended.

As a diabetic, xylitol is a wonderful sweetener that helps with blood glucose levels. My only beef with this one is that 75 is an odd number of packs in the box; and I find the packs scant. I have bought other brands which have more of the product in each packet.

I'm a big fan of Xylitol, it tastes just like sugar and makes sugar free baking rewarding! Only regret was not buying the bag of it, the packets were a lot of work for 1/2 cup worth! The packs would of been great for travel.

**** No aftertaste. Packets are difficult to open for older fingers.

Love this sugarfree and healthy natural sweeter. The packets are great for carrying with me all the time and doesn't have any bitter after taste. Try it!

Wonderful sugar substitute! I also take a 1/2 tsp. every night before I go to bed and let it disolve in my mouth for 5 minutes, then spit it out. My teeth are looking whiter than they every have before!!
