Emerald Forest Xylitol is a sweeter, healthier, smarter choice than other sweeteners. Our Xylitol is made from non-genetically modified corn and it's pesticide free. It's safe for diabetics: it scores a seven on the glycemic index - sugar is 68. Therefore, xylitol doesn’t affect blood sugar or insulin levels. It has 2.4 calories per gram and 75% less carbohydrate intake than sugar. It's as sweet as sugar and can be used in any recipe that calls for sugar. It's also ideal for sweetening coffee, tea or cereal. Classified as a sugar alcohol or polyol, xylitol can be manufactured from starches or extracted from plants. It’s naturally occurring in our bodies, and can be found in some fruits and vegetables. Sugar alcohols like xylitol and erythritol are dental friendly because they can’t be metabolized by oral bacteria so they don’t contribute to tooth decay. Sugar alcohols create an alkaline environment in the mouth instead of an acidic environment. Emerald Forest xylitol is made from corn; the xylan molecule is extracted from the corn in a process that’s classified as all natural. No bleaching occurs at any time during this process. The manufacture of xylitol complies with FDA regulations. Xylitol has a low molecular weight which means it won’t brown the way other sugars do when baked. The benefits of using xylitol as a healthy alternative to sugar and as part of a comprehensive program including proper dental hygiene have been recognized by the American Dental Association.
