There’s a lot to like about Xylitol. This naturally occurring sugar alcohol is one of the healthiest and most unique sweeteners you’ll find. Unlike sugars such as sucrose and fructose, NOW Real Food® Xylitol 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 its caloric impact is around 1/3 lower than other carbohydrates, making Xylitol a healthy sweetener that’s hard to beat.
NOW Real Food® Xylitol is derived from Non-GMO corn and is the perfect healthy substitute for sugar in many cooking applications.
