Xylitol is the sweetest of all bulk sugar substitutes. It is currently used in many sugar-free products and is increasingly gaining acceptance as an alternative sweetener. Frequent eating of foods high in sugars and starches promotes tooth decay. Xylitol does not promote tooth decay.*

With a glycemic index of 7, Xylitol has minimal effect on blood sugar levels. Since yeast cannot metabolize xylitol, XyloSweet is an ideal addition to any sugar-controlled diet. Xylitol has zero net carbs and can be used in any low-carb diet. It has 40% fewer calories than table sugar with 9.6 calories per teaspoon (4 grams).

The xylitol to sugar ratio is 1-1. This makes it easy to replace in almost any recipe. Xylitol is interchangeable with sugar for most cooking applications. However, since yeast cannot metabolize it, XyloSweet will not work when baking breads or anything that contains yeast. Furthermore, it does not crystallize as much as table sugar so it does not do well when making peanut brittle or other hard candy. Finally, the amount required to sweeten drinks such as lemonade, may cause diarrhea in some people until they become accustomed to it.
