More about Xylitol UK Xylitol

Xylitol has the look, feel, and all the sweetness of sugar, yet 40% fewer calories and around 75% fewer carbohydrates. As a low-calorie, natural, and safe sweetener, it’s the ideal alternative for those on a weight management programme as well as anyone who simply prefers to follow a healthier lifestyle.

Xylitol is an ideal sweetener for diabetics, too. Since the body doesn’t require insulin in order to metabolise xylitol, the sweetener produces a much lower glycemic response than occurs with the consumption of other sugars such as sucrose or glucose (we do advise however, that diabetics should consult their doctor before regularly incorporating xylitol into their diet).
It’s even fantastic for your teeth – xylitol is proven to inhibit the growth of cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth by helping to retain a neutral pH level and preventing bacteria from sticking to the teeth.

Use in place of (and in equal amounts to) sugar in cakes, sponges, over cereals, in hot drinks, or any of your favourite dishes.

We use this instead of sugar, it works well in cakes, pastry or as an addition to anything that needs to be sweetened slightly.

- Sat 21st Dec 2013

Strange taste but better and healthier than sugar to use in baking which is what I used it for - made spelt scones with coconut oil rather than butter and xylitol rather than sugar and the result was fabulous

Great sugar alternative and no aftertaste

- Fri 23rd Nov 2012

A truly excellent low GI replacement for sugar that melts right into baked goods. This is a lovely smaller pouch for those just wanting to try.

- Tue 31st Jan 2012

From everything I've read up on this appears to be the safest and most natural sweetener available. Has no nasty bitter after-taste, very versatile. Use in everyday drinks and in baking.

This is an absolutely brilliant product, a sugar substitute that's actually good for you! Although the advice is to use as sugar, I find it to be a bit sweeter so baking with it requires a little experimentation but with excellent results. I also love heating up some frozen blueberries with xylitol to make a quick compote to have with yoghurt.

Brilliant Product - Tue 18th Oct 2011

An Absolute Treasure. This is the same sweetener found in chewing gum and is one of the safest sweeteners available - it's actually a sugar alcohol, but it's got no sugar and it can't get you drunk - it's to do with chemistry... It actually inhibits plaque and is good for your teeth and bones. And it is just as sweet as sugar, but low calorie and very nice, no after taste. It's got a cooling effect in the mouth, so goes great in making chocolate mint ice cream if you make yours yourself.

I would recommend this to those trying to lose weight and watch their blood sugar.

Amazing - Sat 8th May 2010

I never thought I could live without sugar but thanks to xylitol I can! This is amazing, tastes just like sugar, good for your teeth, suitable for diabetics! You can even bake with it too. The thing that I really love about this is it's 100% natural!

- Wed 10th Mar 2010

Xylitol is such a life-saver for those of us who can't eat sugar. This has a low glycaemic-index value and is actually good for teeth! It works well added to tea/cereal/etc - also works very well in baking, adding a lighter texture to my wheat-free baking. Tastes nice, no horrible aftertaste.

teeth strengthener - Tue 12th May 2009

I believe you can actually feel the effect that this stuff has on your teeth. I tried it and it's a kind of weird sensation. Amazing! It's like sugar and can be used as such without probs on cereal or in drinks, but it is actually good for your toothe enamel. I believe that Xylitol is also made from silver birch trees. Can anyone confirm this for me?


Sweet mouthwash - Sat 27th Jul 2013

It might sound strange to advise but if you have teeth or gum issues then try swishing around your mouth some Xylitol sugar to calm them! It worked for me and tastes sweet. Xylitol is basically pure carbohydrate instead of being pure sugar (sucrose) and has natural anti-bacterial properties. There isn't much else too it like nutrients though.
