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.

It is so great to have a source of birch tree xylitol. I was so disappointed when I found my previous supplier''s source was corn even though the container said xylitol occurs naturally in strawberries, raspberries and plums.
