Xylitol (zy-li-tall) is a plant based sweetener. It has many health benefits. For starters, it is good for your teeth by actually preventing cavities. It stabilizes insulin and hormone levels. Xylitol also acts as a fiber, helping the body absorb calcium. Xylitol registers at 7 on the glycemic index scale as opposed to sucrose (fructose and glucose) which is around 68 and honey which is at 55, making it ideal for people with diabetes or blood sugar management issues. Xylitol has 45% fewer calories than sugar. For further information on xylitol, check out http://www.xylitol.org or just simply Google xylitol and investigate for yourself. The only negative side effect we found with xylitol, is that it may be harmful to dogs when ingested in high quantities.
The xylitol used in Truthgum is derived from the scraps of birch wood from lumber mills of North America. This byproduct of lumber mills is no longer considered waste but is now being utilized to produce a healthy cavity fighting sweetener that is Truthgum.
