Best Quantity for Price
I have been using this for a year and a half and it is the best sugar substitute that I have found. It is a 1:1 sub and taste the most like sugar than other sweeteners. This is also the best price I have found. Thanks All Star Health!
ARE ALL BRANDS OF XYLITOL THE SAME?
No, they are not. One difference is the size of the granules. I have bought xylitol that was like confectioners sugar, so fine a powder the it was almost impossible to measure correctly, and the powder would disperse in the air like dust. While I believe that xylitol is completely healthy, I doubt that breathing xylitol dust is particularly good. This product is just about identical in granule size to table sugar. So it looks like sugar, tastes like sugar and acts like sugar in measuring, dissolving and mixing. Speaking of health, the next difference is the question of genetic modification. Sure, the jury is still out on the question of genetically modified foods being unhealthy, but, in this case, I choose to believe that it IS harmful unless and until it is debunked scientifically. I am not like that generally. I still think that global warming is a myth. Not all brands of xylitol are non-GMO. This product IS. But then comes the third difference. Anyone who has shopped at stores like Trader Joes or Whole Foods knows that non-GMO products tend to be more pricey than the modified stuff. Well, this 15 pound bag of excellent xylitol costs including shipping $4.26/pound. When I first started using xylitol, I bought it at The Vitamin Shoppe. At that store, and others like Whole Foods charge between $12 and $15 for a pound! At that rate, I would practically count the number of granules that I would be planning to use. Now I use it for tea and coffee, I make our own ice cream, bake with it, use it for everything that calls for sugar. The last thing has to do with All Star Health. I live in the San Fernando Valley, so I am only 50 or 60 miles from the supping point. But they are the FASTEST to ship an order of ANY company I have dealt with, INCLUDING Amazon which, in my opinion, has set the standard for customer service. Earlier this year, I was actually searching Amazon for xylitol and bought from an Amazon seller. But it was more expensive than what I found at All Star, and, fast as it was, it was beat by All Star. As Forrest Gump would say, THATS ALL IM GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT".
Xylitol reduces bacteria.
Love it, great price, super product. My dentist recommended taking 1 tsp after every meal and just swish it around my mouth for several minutes then swallow it – helps reduce bacteria.
We use this as a substitute for sugar when we eat sweets which isnt often. It is used 1:1 as sugar would be. easy and lower carb. :
