Visitor Questions
Q What do you think about xylitol?

Xylitol is a naturally occurring alcohol found in most plant material, including many fruits and vegetables. Xylitol is widely used as a sugar substitute and in "sugar-free" chewing gums, mints, and other candies. It is a low glycemic sweetener, and is slowly absorbed and metabolized independently of insulin; therefore, xylitol does not cause the dramatic increase in blood sugar level or serum insulin response and therefore can be used as a sugar-free sweetener for diabetics. Xylitol can cause diarrhea and intestinal gas when ingested in high amounts by sensitive individuals. We do not have a specific recommendation on the use of sugar alcohols at this time; however, we believe they can be used sparingly as part of the Healthiest Way of Eating.
