NOW Xylitol Details
Looking for a healthy alternative to conventional table sugar that's much lower in carbohydrates? Xylitol is an outstanding choice! This sugar alcohol is derived from fruits, is approximately 50% less sweet than sugar, and has a much lower glycemic rating. As a result, it metabolizes slower in the body and helps support healthy blood/glucose levels. Extensive clinical studies continue to demonstrate that Xylitol is 100% natural and completely safe for both adults and children. Try some today and see for yourself!
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol naturally found in certain fruits and vegetables that makes an excellent low-calorie sweetener. Our bodies naturally produce up to 15 grams of Xylitol daily from the foods we eat, but Xylitol has no substantial nutritive value. Its real value lies in its low glycemic (blood sugar) impact and the fact that sugar alcohols such as Xylitol don’t promote dental cavities, as many sugars do.
Xylitol isn’t new to the natural products marketplace. It was initially discovered by a German scientist in 1891 but was largely overlooked until World War II, when sugar shortages prompted an innovative group of Finnish scientists to begin researching alternative sweeteners. Xylitol quickly became the group’s focus, and they named it “birch sugar” because it was derived from a fiber (xylan) found in the cellulose of birch tree bark. By the 1960’s Xylitol was being commercially used in Europe, the Soviet Union, and Japan. Today it’s commonly used in the United States as a low-calorie, low glycemic sweetener.
