Xylitol is a natural compound that looks and tastes just like sugar. Our bodies already digest the xylitol found in fruits, vegetables and other organic substances. In fact, we produce about 15 grams of xylitol daily as part of normal metabolism.Nature’s Sweet Life xylitol is derived from non-genetically modified corn, making it completely natural. Xylitol has a safe track record; it has been used for over 40 years around the world and is approved in the U.S. for use in quantities needed to sweeten foods. Not only does xylitol offer great taste, but it contains 40% fewer calories and 75% fewer carbohydrates than regular table sugar.
The remarkable properties of xylitol stem from its unique molecular structure. Most sugar-like molecules have a six-carbon “hexose” unit. Xylitol is a five-carbon “pentitol” sugar. Because of its distinctive arrangement of atoms, bacteria cannot utilize it for energy. This chemical structure inhibits the ability of our bodies to fully metabolize it as well. For this reason, xylitol has a limited effect on blood sugar levels. Its low glycemic index of 7 makes it a terrific solution for carb-counters as well as those trying to lose weight.
Xylitol can be substituted for table sugar and other sweeteners without compromising taste or texture. It may take a few days for the body to become accustomed to digesting xylitol, until that time it is recommended that xylitol be gradually introduced into the diet over a period of a few weeks. Because xylitol does not ferment or crystallize, it cannot be used to replace table sugar in some bread and candy recipes. Unlike sugar, xylitol can be left on the teeth overnight. To obtain the maximum dental benefits of xylitol, use 4-12 grams each day. Not recommended for pets.
