Xylitol is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol that is found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as in hardwood trees. A champion among sugar alcohol sweeteners, xylitol is a veritable powerhouse of unparalleled health benefits, with no harmful additives or artificial chemicals.
Overall, xylitol is a tried-and-tested favorite among consumers, valued for its unequivocal health benefits and pure, sweet taste.
Xylitol is produced by extracting the all-natural sugar alcohol contained in hardwood trees. Because we use no corn ingredients, Health Garden’s xylitol is certified gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance or sensitivity.
Extensive studies have concluded that xylitol is safe for daily consumption.
Xylitol has a low GI, which makes it an attractive alternative to sugar for people wishing to lose weight. The ingredient can also help manage diabetes, hypertension, and obesity when used as part of a healthy lifestyle.
In addition, consumption of xylitol has been shown to reduce tooth decay and the incidence of gum disease. Xylitol even stops the production of tooth decay-causing acid and neutralizes the pH level in saliva and plaque.
How to use?:
Xylitol is a versatile sweetener due to its pure, sweet taste and can be used in a variety of ways.
Add xylitol to your favorite drinks, including coffee, tea, hot chocolate, juice, lemonade, cocktails, and sparkling water. Xylitol can also be added to yogurts, smoothies, sauces, marinades, jams, and salad dressings, as well as all your favorite recipes.
Xylitol is usually well tolerated by most people. However, some people may be more sensitive to xylitol, especially in large amounts. For people with preexisting digestive issues, we recommend introducing xylitol slowly to your diet, which will allow your body to adjust gradually to the increased amount.
What causes tooth decay? Foods containing sugar provide bacteria with energy, allowing them to multiply. As the bacteria digest the sugar, they produce acids that gradually eat away at the enamel that protects the surface of teeth, causing tooth decay and cavities to form. How does xylitol help? The bacteria are unable to digest xylitol, which reduces the overall amount of bacteria. No acid is formed so the protective enamel layer is unharmed. The reduction in acid also keeps the pH level of saliva neutral which helps protect the teeth. In addition, without sugar the bacteria has trouble sticking to teeth which casues a decrease in plaque. Xylitol can even stimulate saliva to repair damaged enamel! Many brands of toothpaste and mouthwash include xylitol for its powerful impact.
Safe for pets?:
Xylitol is 100% safe for people to consume, however, numerous studies have shown that xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs and other pets and can be fatal if ingested. Keep xylitol and products containing xylitol out of reach of pets. If you suspect your pet has eaten something containing xylitol, contact your veterinarian immediately.
