Q UESTION : How does xylitol differ from other sweeteners?
ANSWER: Chemically speaking, xylitol is not actually a sugar, but a sugar alcohol. It differs from other sweeteners such as sorbitol, fructose and glucose because the xylitol molecule has five, instead of six, carbon atoms. Most
bacteria in mouth are unable to make use of such sugars. This is one reason why xylitol helps prevent caries.
QUESTION: How does Xylitol offer weight-loss benefits?
Xylitol is a 7 on the glycemic index (table sugar is 100). 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. When your insulin is stable, you are much less likely to crave sweet foods. Eating Xylitol allows sweet foods to become the same as any other foods you eat. It puts an end to sugar cravings and addiction. With the sugar addiction gone, you are once again in control of your eating. In addition, studies show that Xylitol may improve nitrogen balance in the body therefore helping the body to burn fat.
Q UESTION : Is it true that Xylitol is all natural?
ANSWER: Yes. Xylitol is so all natural that your body makes it during normal glucose metabolism. It naturally occurs in berries, some vegetables, and woody substances such as birch bark and corn cobs. In NZ Xylitol is sold under the brand Annies Denta Sweet is made from rice husks
Q UESTION :
How is Xylitol different than other sweeteners?
ANSWER: Xylitol is a "sugar alcohol". Chemically, sucrose (sugar), fructose, sorbitol and glucose all have six carbon atoms in their molecules. Xylitol has five carbon atoms in its molecules. Six carbon molecules are easily digested by oral bacteria but a five carbon molecule has strong chemical bonds that are very difficult for bacteria to digest. So when xylitol is consumed, these bacteria populations starve out and decline. This is one way that xylitol helps prevent plaque and cavities. Xylitol has the same sweetness as sugar but with 40% less calories. Xylitol's functional properties are similar to sugar, it dissolves slower at cold temperatures but faster than sugar above 86 degrees F.
QUESTION : I have heard that Xylitol looks and tastes teaspoon-for-teaspoon- like sugar. Is that true?
ANSWER: Yes, Xylitol is produced in a crystallized form (like sugar) and can be substituted for sugar in recipes teaspoon-for-teaspoon.
QUESTION : Can I add Xylitol to hot and cold beverages and expect it to sweeten them like sugar does?
Yes, Xylitol will sweeten anything you eat or drink exactly like sugar.
QUESTION : Most sugar alternatives have an aftertaste. What is Xylitol’s after taste?
During and after eating Xylitol, the taste in your mouth is exactly like table sugar. Really!
QUESTION : Is Xylitol as likely to cause me to gain weight as sugar is?
Xylitol has 40 percent fewer calories and 75 percent fewer carbohydrates than sugar—making it a nutritive, reduced calorie and low carbohydrate sugar alternative. And it offers weight loss benefits (because it helps to stabilize insulin ) that sugar and most other sugar alternatives do not offer.
QUESTION : Does Xylitol have other health benefits?
ANSWER: Yes. Here are some of the health benefits we know about today. Scientists predict there will be many more:
It is a great way for diabetics to enjoy sweet foods since it is processed through the gut without involving insulin.
• It prevents tooth decay by inhibiting plaque and dental caries by 80 percent.
• Promotes healthy bones by helping to re-mineralize bones.
• Makes the mouth and gut an unfriendly environment for bacteria to live in.
Researchers in the United States and abroad showed children's dental health improved and they had less ear aches if their chewing gum included Xylitol.
