If you like sugar but don't like all the calories - try Xylitol.
Xylitol is an entirely natural sweetener made from Finnish Birch tree Extract.
Replace sugar in your cuppa and cakes - naturally.
XYLITOL can be used in all hot drinks, biscuits, crumbles, muffins, ice cream, and confectionery.
It has the same uses as sugar, but with 40% fewer calories.
Sprinkle it over fresh fruit or use it to sweeten cereals or yoghurt. XYLITOL is as versatile and delicious as regular sugar.
XYLITOL is heat-stable for cooking and baking. It mixes and dissolves just like regular sugar and can replace sugar in equal measurements.
XYLITOL is great news for diabetics!
With XYLITOL you can have your cake, coffee AND snacks - happily.
Unlike other sugars, XYLITOL is metabolized without insulin and therefore creates a significantly lower glycemic effect when consumed.
Diabetics who use XYLITOL as an alternative to table sugar enjoy steady blood sugar levels at all times.
This in contrast to the dangerously fluctuating blood sugar levels one would otherwise have to worry about.
Xylitol and your teeth.
XYLITOL-based products are promoted and endorsed by both the US Food and Drug Administration and the British Dental Association.
XYLITOL is a truly tooth-friendly sugar.
Not only does it not advance tooth decay; XYLITOL has been found to help teeth repair minor cavities caused by dental caries.
Xylitol and bacteria
XYLITOL stops bacteria from attaching to the tissues in the mouth, nose, and throat.
XYLITOL has also been found to inhibit the growth of Pneumococci. Doctors have harnessed this phenomenon and are using XYLITOL to reduce the symptoms of middle ear infections (otitis media), particularly in children.
Studies have also shown that XYLITOL is effective in treatment for Candida yeast infections and in preventing acute otitis media (AOM) when delivered in syrup or chewing gum and; thereby decreasing the need for antibiotics.
XYLITOL also promotes estrogen levels in the body; building healthy bones
Why use sugar, when you can use Xylitol ?
As well as all the technical information above - it tastes fantastic!!
"The reason that we first tried Xylitol was because my husband is diabetic, and we both wanted to lose weight.
There's no way I thought that I could give up sugar in my coffee, but you just can't tell the difference between Sugar and Xylitol.
It has none of that unpleasant after-taste of other sweeteners.
As it's so hard to find in the shops I thought we would add it to the site.
I hope you like it too."
