Xylitol is a natural sugar derived from birch bark, which is an interesting alternative to ordinary white sugar! In the form of a rather fine and white powder, which looks like refined white sugar, it is obtained from birch sap. Xylitol is an excellent alternative to refined sugar, because not only does it have only 27 calories per 10 grams (roughly one tablespoon), but its glycaemic index is very low because it is 7. For comparison, the glycemic index of refined white sugar is between 65 and 70. If we therefore compare the glycemic indexes of the different types of sugar that exist, xylitol is more than ever the right choice for people with diabetes, whose blood sugar must be monitored and controlled.
Dosage 1: 1 compared to normal table sugar.
The product is not recommended for children under 3 years old, and adults should transition to this sugar gradually. Excess consumption of xylitol can have a laxative effect.
Precautions for use
