Interesting facts about Xylitol
Xylitol was discovered and produced in Finland during the war years in response to their sugar shortages. It was synthesised from the bark of birch trees. It is now made from sugar cane bagasse or from maize cobs. It is a 5-carbon sugar polyol that is metabolised in the liver, supplying only 40% of the calories of sugar.
Xylitol has none of the negative side effects of some non-nutritive sweeteners but in fact promotes health.

Advantages of using Xylitol

  • Weight control: Xylitol has a very low Glycaemic Load and contains only 40% of the calories found in sugar.
  • Candida: Because Xylitol does not support the growth of yeast, it reduces Candida infections.
  • ADD and Hyperactivity: Children eating Xylitol do not demonstrate the ‘sugar-high’ reactions.
  • Middle-ear infections: Another of the Streptococcal bacteria, Streptococcus pneumoniae causes middle ear infection. Xylitol prevents growth of this bacterium.
  • Osteopororsis: It has been suggested by Finnish researchers that Xylitol has bone density enhancing properties.
  • Acidity: Xylitol reduces acidity in the digestive tract.

Xylitol is available in bags of 500 x 5g sachets or boxes of 2000 x 5g sachets.
