Xylitol is a white crystalline sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar and replaces sugar in recipes to allow for lesser bulk: approximately ½ cup xylitol = 1 cup sugar. Xylitol occurs naturally in vegetables, fruits and hardwoods—ours is extracted from birch trees. It is often used as the sweetener in many toothpastes and chewing gums because it does not contribute to the formation of detrimental bacteria.
Xylitol is versatile and can used in any sweet or savoury dish, or as a sugar substitute in hot drinks. There is some cause for concern at present with the processing of xylitol, so if you are after a low-processed product, may be this is not your best choice. Our real birch bark xylitol has a cooling flavour. Its cooling taste is pleasing in mint, lemony or fruity desserts.
