Hello & Happy Wednesday!

 

 

I had the pleasure of working with a company that specializes in producing non GMO Xylitol. Many of you may be wondering,

 

…what the heck is xylitol?

 

From what I found, there is actually lot to like about Xylitol. Its a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol and is considered one of the healthiest and most unique sweeteners you can find. Unlike sugars such as sucrose and fructose, Xylitol is a sugar alcohol derived from the fibrous parts of plants that doesn’t promote tooth decay. Though it’s classified as a carbohydrate, it has a low glycemic impact due to its slow absorption in the digestive tract and decreased insulin response, and its caloric impact is around 1/3 lower than other carbohydrates, making Xylitol a healthy sweetener especially for those who are diabetic. Xylitol consumption has been shown to decrease total caloric intake by encouraging slower gastric emptying, which helps to control appetite.

 


Xylitol is typically commercially produced from the cellulose of wood, sugar cane pulp, certain seed hulls, and/or corn cobs. Morning Prep Xylitol is produced from only non-GMO cellulose of birch wood. The taste that xylitol offers is quite similar to regular sugar except that it has 40% fewer calories, making it an ideal alternative sweetener in foods prepared for weight loss or for anyone concerned about the overuse of sugar in their diet.

Why people like Xylitol

(my research)

 

 

Xylitol has a delicious, sweet taste, and no unpleasant aftertaste! Xylitol has about a third the calories as table sugar, and is a healthy alternative for diabetics. Not only does it make an excellent sugar substitute, but it aids in the prevention of dental caries, and reduces plaque formation. 

 

  • Delicious sweet taste… with no unpleasant aftertaste

  • Helps reduce the development of dental caries

  • Reduces plaque formation

  • Increases salivary flow to aid in the repair of damaged tooth enamel

  • Provides one third fewer calories than sugar

  • May be useful as a sugar alternative for people with diabetes (on the advice of their healthcare providers)
