Xylitol, the white crystalline or crystalline powder, is a natural, healthy sweetener. With the lack of insulin in the body, xylitol can also promote the synthesis of glycogen yuan to supply the nutrition and energy for cells, and does not cause blood sugar levels rise, so it is the most suitable sweeteners for people with diabetes.
Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol found in most plant material, including many fruits and vegetables. It is extracted from birch wood to make medicine.
Xylitol is widely used as a sugar substitute and in “sugar-free” chewing gums, mints, and other candies. However, sorbitol is the most commonly used sweetener in sugarless gums because it is less expensive than xylitol and easier to make into commercial products.
People use xylitol to prevent cavities. It is also used to prevent tooth plaque and ear infection (otitis media), and for many other uses, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
