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
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. NOW Xylitol is derived from a corn source.

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) it needs to erode tooth enamel. It can also be used as a sugar substitute in most sugar-free recipes.

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]
