*Prebiotic - Feeds the good bacteria (bugs) - oligosaccharides (Fibre Sweet) are recognised as the best known prebiotic foods commonly available. The term has only been around for about 10 years when the oligosaccharide range was discovered to be really effective as a food for the good bugs and only the good bugs. This is the criteria for calling it a prebiotic.This is not the case with other sugar alcohols like Malitol and Sorbitol (used in making sugar-free chocolates) which feed both the good and the bad bugs. The oligosaccharides only feed the good gut flora and in particular they boost the levels of bifidus, lactobacillus and acidophilus.

Low Carb NZ - Product Info

The glycemic index measures the ability of a food to raise insulin levels Since Xylitol does not raise insulin levels, you can eat sweet foods containing Xylitol without experiencing blood sugar fluctuations. It differs from other sweeteners such as sorbitol, fructose and glucose because the xylitol molecule has five, instead of six, carbon atoms.

Another place which sells and couriers South African stuff is Zebra Zu.You can buy it in a hunk and slice it as you need it, or you can ask for it to be coarsely sliced or sliced thin. If the salty tang is too much for the unaccustomed palate you can dip the slices in a dip made from cream cheese with a slice of avocado mixed in.
