So, what is xilitol?

Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that is commonly used as a sugar substitute. It has a similar sweetness to sugar but with 40% fewer calories. Xylitol is derived from plants such as birch trees and corn cobs, making it a natural and sustainable alternative to artificial sweeteners. It has a low glycemic index, making it a popular option for people with diabetes or those trying to manage their blood sugar levels. Xylitol also has dental benefits, as it can help prevent tooth decay and promote oral health. It is a versatile ingredient that can be used in baking, cooking, and as a sweetener in beverages.
