All-Natural Sugar Substitute
The average person eats one and a half cups of sugar a day, far more than most people can handle metabolically. Excessive sugar consumption is not part of a healthy lifestyle and can contribute to weight gain and other metabolic anomalies. Dragon Herbs Xylitol is an all-natural phytonutrient derived from non-GMO corn cobs. It is teaspoon-for-teaspoon as sweet as sucrose, typical table sugar, so it is very satisfying. But unlike sucrose, Xylitol does not require insulin to be metabolized. Xylitol has the same sweetness and bulk as sucrose with only 2.4 calories per gram. Unlike most Stevia, Xylitol has no unpleasant aftertaste. Xylitol has the added quality of binding to saliva, leaving a sweet taste lingering in the mouth. It produces a mild cooling sensation in the mouth. Importantly, Xylitol occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables and is even produced by the human body during normal metabolism. Some companies sell Xylitol made from birch trees. Dragon Herbs once did so as well. But because the production of Xylitol from birch tree bark requires the cutting down of the birch trees, Dragon Herbs has elected to sell Xylitol extracted from non-GMO corn cobs, a very renewable and sustainable resource. Dragon Herbs Xylitol is a 100% pure, white crystalline granule with a bright, refreshing, sweet flavor that is suitable for all cooking, beverages and food preparation. It dissolves quickly and completely. It may be used as part of your diet to help maintain a healthy blood sugar level. Xylitol is perfectly safe for humans. Please note that Xylitol cannot be digested by dogs and should not be fed to dogs or other pets.
