Naturally Sweet Xylitol – Looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, only good for your health.Naturally Sweet Xylitol is made from a product originally derived from birch bark but is now usually obtained from corn. It modifies the saliva in your mouth so that eating meals and desserts flavoured with Xylitol not only do not cause cavities but may prevent cavities by promoting the remineralisation of tooth enamel. BUT AS IMPORTANTLY, every teaspoon of Naturally Sweet Xylitol also contains 40% fewer calories than sugar! It is so slowly absorbed that it has almost no effect on blood sugar levels for people who have diabetes. Comes in a resealable standup packet for convenience and to ensure its freshness. Substitute for sugar on a 1:1 basis.
