ADVANTAGES OF USING XYLITOL

Helps With your weight control

Xylitol can be effective for weight loss as it has 40% less calories than sugar. Xylitol also has a low glycemic index, so prevents the typical ‘blood sugar spike’, which helps prevent cravings, and helps control appetite.

Healthy Benefits for Diabetics

Xylitol has a very low Glycemic Index and does not spike Blood Sugar or Insulin. One of the negative effects of consuming sugar, is that it can spike blood sugar and insulin levels. Xylitol has negligible effects on blood sugar and is safe for diabetics to use.

A Sweet Choice for Baking

Xylitol won’t break down with heat like some other sweeteners so it’s the perfect choice for any recipe that calls for sugar.

Healthy Teeth

Numerous studies show that Xylitol has powerful benefits for dental health and prevention of tooth decay. Sugar is the perfect source of energy for oral bacteria that are found naturally in the human mouth, such as Streptococcus Mutans. This bacteria causes oral diseases such as plaque and gingivitis. Xylitol does not support the growth of these bacteria, and in fact starves them of their food source, which is sucrose. Leading international regulatory bodies have approved health claims for Xylitol against tooth decay.

Banting & Low Carb Diet Friendly

Sweet Nothings Xylitol is a natural alternative to sugar and other artificial sweeteners and is highly recommended for the Banting Diet.
