So, what is ksylitol?

Xylitol is a natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar, but has fewer calories and is diabetic-friendly. It is commonly used in chewing gum, toothpaste, and other oral care products as it helps prevent cavities by reducing the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth. Xylitol is also found in many low-sugar or sugar-free food products, such as candies, baked goods, and drinks. Unlike some artificial sweeteners, xylitol doesn't have a bitter aftertaste and can be used in cooking and baking just like regular sugar. Additionally, xylitol has been shown to have potential health benefits, including improving bone density and preventing ear infections.
