History of Xylitol;- Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally
present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. The Finnish
name for Xylitol is “koivusokeri”, or birch sugar, a reference to the
extraction of Xylitol from birch bark. NOW Pure Xylitol is derived from
a Non-GMO corn source. Considerable amounts of Xylitol is formed in the
body every day as a result of normal metabolic processes. Although it is
classified as a carbohydrate, this sweet crystalline substance is slowly
absorbed from the digestive tract and does not cause rapid rises in

chemists in 1891, Xylitol has been safely used since the 1970’s as an
ingredient in gums and candies. Dentists and Nutritionists alike
encourage the use of Xylitol due to its unique and clinically proven
dental benefits. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be utilized by
bacteria in the mouth. Xylitol… a safe alternative for your sweet
