When I gave up sugar a few years ago, I thought fruit would be enough to take its place, but there are times when a cookie sure hits the spot. I have experimented with all the natural sweeteners on the market and Xylosweet is ideal if you want to make your favorite recipes!
Xylitol is an amazing substance! It is made from birch trees (and other plants). 25 years of medical research has proven that xylitol is effective in preventing and healing sinus infections, ear aches, sore throats and bladder infections, because it creates a slippery surface that bacteria cannot attach to. This works in the mouth as well, preventing tooth decay.
From a dietary standpoint, Xylitol enters the cells without the need for insulin, making it safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics. It has a glycemic index of just 7, compared to sugar's rating of 100. Best of all— as far as I am concerned—is that it sweetens food without an aftertaste, and is cup-for-cup the same sweetness as sugar, so you can use your favorite recipes. That is a huge benefit, because you will be able to replace sugar in your family's diet without changing the foods they love and are familiar with. The only thing xylitol won't do is crystalize, so you cannot use it to make hard candy.
The only downside is that xylitol is a bit pricey . . . but I try to offer my family treats sparingly so it is certainly doable. I am just thrilled to have a healthy sugar-free cookie without an aftertaste!
I am offering a 1 lb. bag so you can try it out and see how delicious it is, but buying the 5 lb. bag is the most economical. 100% xylitol - Pharmaceutical grade. We have made a big bulk purchase so we can offer you the least expensive Xylosweet on the market!
