What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol and a common substitute for sugar in various food products. It is a natural substance found in small amounts in many fruits and vegetables and is also produced commercially from birch bark or corn cobs. It is a popular ingredient generally used in the production of sugar-free gum, candy, jams and jellies, honey, nut butter, yogurt and baked goods, as well as some dental products, including toothpaste, mouthwash and other fluoride products. It is characterized by a low glycemic index, which means it does not cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. This makes it a suitable sweetener for the masses suffering from diabetes, and who want to maintain a healthy blood sugar level. Due to the presence of a low level of the glycemic index (GI), there has been a significant increase in the demand for xylitol among the health-conscious population as a weight-loss-friendly sugar substitute.
