Zint Xylitol is harvested naturally from non-GMO corn, though xylitol can also be derived from other fibrous vegetation and hardwood trees such as birch.
As a sugar alcohol, xylitol is a completely natural sweetener, not to be confused with artificial sweeteners that have known toxicity problems. Xylitol's hybrid of one sugar molecule and one alcohol molecule results in a sweet taste that is instantly picked up by your tongue's receptors. It has 40% fewer calories than sugar, 75% fewer carbohydrates, no unpleasant aftertaste, and a low glycemic index score, making it a perfect natural substitute for sugar.
Just like sugar, it can used as a sweetener in any food or drink. In recipes that call for sugar, simply substitute the same amount of xylitol.
Unlike sugar, which causes blood-sugar levels to sharply rise and fall, xylitol has no direct impact on blood sugar or insulin levels. While sugar falls between #60-70 on the glycemic index, xylitol is at #7, making it a great choice for those living with sugar-controlled diets.
Because xylitol can't be metabolized by plaque-causing bacteria, it has also been proven to promote dental health and hygiene, reducing tooth decay by 30-80% and virtually eliminating the risk for gingivitis. By substituting xylitol for sugar, oral bacteria is reduced by up to 90%. This causes a dramatic reduction in acid produced in your mouth, which makes your enamel much less susceptible to decay. It's no surprise that the use of xylitol is supported by the dental associations of Finland, Sweden, Norway, Britain, Ireland and Estonia as well as many states in the U.S.
Can I use xylitol for cooking?
Yes. Just like sugar, xylitol is heat-stable, which means you can safely use it for cooking.
Does xylitol have any association with cancer?
No. Unlike artificial sweeteners such as saccharine or aspartame, xylitol is completely natural. That means you won't have to worry about some of the disturbing studies on artificial sweeteners that show possible links to cancer, neurological disorders, and unnatural weight gain.
Can I use xylitol to eliminate sugar from my diet completely?
Yes, though typically the body requires a period of three-to-six weeks for adjustment. During this time, gradually increase your consumption slowly and monitor your tolerance.
