Now Real Food Xylitol
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in 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 Non-GMO 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 lower than other carbohydrates, making it a lower calorie addition to any diet.* Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be utilized by bacteria in the mouth.* The best thing about NOW® Xylitol is that it can take the place of the sugar you're already using. After all, it looks like sugar, tastes like sugar and pours just like regular sugar!* Xylitol is a wise alternative for your sweet tooth.
