Adjust as your taste buds require. *
Xylitol is a white crystalline powder that is odorless, with a pleasant, sweet taste just like sugar. Xylitol occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables and is even produced by the human body during normal metabolism. Because it has been shown to reduce the development of dental caries (cavities), it has gained increasing acceptance as a natural alternative to sugar. Xylitol comes from plants rich in hemicellulose and is commercially produced primarily from corn cobs and stalks and from birchwood/hardwood trees. Xylitol is equal in sweetness to white table sugar (sucrose).
*In some sensitive people, larger amounts of xylitol could cause a loosening of the bowels. If this should occur, reduce intake of xylitol products. Adaptation to larger amounts of xylitol usually takes less than 2 weeks.

Love this. Use it on berries,oatmeal and cooking. No after taste. Love how low the glycemic index is, 7. Will be ordering again and now other members of our family is going to order also.
If you look on a web site called Healing Teeth Naturally you can find an article about a xylitol protocol that says some amazing things about healing cavities and gums with xylitol. if i remember correctly it was the Buhl protocol, but I'll have to check on that. One half teaspoon three times a day or more, rinse with the saliva mix for some minutes and spit out. My teeth felt stronger and I still can't believe last dental visit no cavities. I have not checked for about three years and I usually always have cavities. Check it out!
Great taste. Works well in baking.
i have tried other brands, this is the best! Homestead Market shipped this superfast, i had it two days!
I use Xylitol in warm filtered water as a natural remedy for sinus problems and I find this is the best brand for relief and does not burn my nose when irrigating or using the Neti pot.
tastes just like sugar! Actually I like it better than store bought processed sugar. Comes in a strong bag with a good zip lock type seal. should last for the life of the product. highly recommended & I''ll purchase again when I run out. This was my second purchase.
Homestead''s Birch Xylitol is the best of this product you can get, at the most affordable price.
I am so excited to find a sweetening product that tastes good and has no bad after taste. Also,in baked and cooked foods, it''s no different than sugar. Most importantly, as my doctor explained to me, birch based xylitol does not spike your blood sugar unlike ANY corn based product. Thank you so much for providing an excellent, healthy, affordable and non-artificial product.
Less calories than sugar and a great taste. worth the price.
This handy canister stores the xylitol while I keep a small amount in a separate container for daily use. I have used the product for several years and like the wide selection available at Homestead Market.
