A safe, delicious, sweetener with 40% less calories than cane sugar and 75% less carbohydrates.
Xylitol is a natural sweetener that looks, feels and tastes just like refined white sugar.
Because Xylitol is slow releasing, with a very low glycemic index of just 7 (10 times lower than sugar) it helps the body avoid significant jumps in insulin levels.
Drinks and Baking
Xylitol is great for use in cooking and baking. Xylitol won’t break down with heat like other sweeteners, so it is the perfect choice for just about any recipe that calls for sugar. Just replace refined white sugar with Xylitol.
Use just the same amount of Xylitol as you would refined white sugar for everyday use. When using Xylitol to make cakes, biscuits, puddings or for other cooking just use the same amount that is stated in the recipe. (Xylitol is not recommended for making yeast-based breads as fermentation does not occur and bread will not rise.)
Xylitol is a great choice as a sweetener for those on a diabetic diet. Xylitol is a natural insulin stabiliser making it a beneficial and healthy sugar alternative. The more you use Xylitol in preference to cane sugar, the more you can reduce sugar cravings, maintain low insulin levels and make your body more alkaline.
Xylitol is slow releasing, with a very low glycemic index of 7 (10 times lower than sugar), making it extremely beneficial for sportspeople as it doesn’t spike blood sugar levels like other sugar products. It has a unique 5 carbon atom structure which is metabolised only by friendly bacteria.
Suitable for all Ages
Xylitol promotes the intestines ability to absorb calcium more efficiently from the food we eat. This has been shown to have a roll in reversing bone loss as we age. Xylitol is suitable for the whole family including pregnant and nursing woman.
Teeth and Gums
Foods containing sugar increase harmful micro-organisms that create a sticky, acidic environment in our mouths leaving gums and tooth enamel prone to damage, erosion and eventually cavities. Xylitol adjusts pH lowering oral acidity levels and “starves” the harmful micro-organisms. This allows the mouth to reduce plaque, re-mineralise damaged teeth and helps to improve the health or our teeth and gums.
Note: Xylitol is not suitable for dogs.
