Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. It was originally extracted from birch trees in Finland. NOW Xylitol is derived from a corn source and is identical to xylitol from birch.
It resembles sugar in consistency and taste, but has a third fewer calories and is a great sugar alternative for diabetics. Xylitol may also inhibit cavities by denying plaque bacteria the fuel sugar needed to erode tooth enamel. It can be used as a sugar substitute in most sugar-free recipes.
