Xylitol Overview

If xylitol (SIGH-li-tall) isn't the ideal substitute for sugar, it's darn close. This totally natural and safe compound has a white granular appearance, similar to and a bit coarser than table sugar. Spoon for spoon you measure and use it just like sugar. Xylitol has a cool, neutral sweetness. Because it metabolizes so slowly, xylitol has a negligible effect on blood sugar levels, making it ideal for diabetics and dieters. In the kitchen xylitol works for most recipes except when you're baking with yeast, or when making certain types of candy. Not only is xylitol a lot kinder to your teeth than sugar, it's actually been found to inhibit the formation of cavities.

Xylitol Description from NOW
There's a lot to like about xylitol. This naturally-occurring sugar alcohol is one of the healthiest and most unique sweetners you'll find. Unlike sugars such as sucrose and fructose, NOW Real Food Xyiltol is a sugar alcohol, which doesn't promote tooth decay. Even though it's classified as a carbohydrate, it has a low glycemic impact due to its slow absorption in the digestive tract, and it's caloric impact is around 1/3 lower than other carbohydrates, making Xylitol a healthy sweetener that's hard to beat.

NOW Real Food Pure Xylitol powder is derived from corn and is the perfect healthy substitute for sugar in many cooking applications.

Fabulous product, fabulous price

While the toxicity of Xylitol for dogs is well documented, its complete safety - at any dose - for humans is just as well documented. Don't feed it to your canines, take a couple months for your GI tract to adjust, and you will be soaring free in zero-glycemic-index, tastes-exactly-like-sugar heaven!!! I have used NOW Xylitol in everything from Kool-Aid, to baked goods to the all-important cup(s) of coffee and cappuccino in the morning. Plus, it actually kills the bacteria that cause cavities in your mouth and greatly reduces bacterial ear-nose-throat infections. You absolutely can't go wrong with Xylitol (just don't feed it to your dogs!)

Please note, XYLITOL is TOXIC to DOGS and other pets

Your pet will love the taste and you may be tempted to share your creations with this great tasting sugar alternative, but DON'T!!! only 3 grams of Xylitol can kill a 65 pound dog! I am going to switch to Erythritol which is made from pears and apples, because my animals are always into everything! You can google this to verify or see the article on Snopes.[link removed]
