Organic Xylitol

Meet our tooth-friendly sweetener! Xylitol is a type of carbohydrate called a sugar alcohol, that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables like strawberries, raspberries, mushrooms and cauliflower. The advantage of Xylitol over other sweeteners, is it is known to inhibit the growth of oral bacteria (mutans streptococci) in plaque and saliva which when not in check is related to a higher incidence of dental caries. Based on a large amount of scientific evidence both the American Dental Association and the FDA have recognized xylitol as beneficial to oral health.
