So, what is de xylitol?

Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sugar substitute. It has a similar sweetness level to regular sugar but with fewer calories and a lower glycemic index. Xylitol is derived from various plant materials, such as birch bark, corn cobs, and hardwood trees. It is commonly used in sugar-free gum and candy, as well as in oral care products due to its anti-bacterial properties. Xylitol is also a popular ingredient in low-carb and ketogenic diets due to its low glycemic impact. It has a refreshing, cooling effect in the mouth and is often used as a sugar replacement in baking recipes.
