Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in the fiber of fruits, including strawberries, raspberries and plums, that has proven to promote positive dental oral health. Our bodies produce up to 15 grams of xylitol through the metabolism of foods high in xylitol. A white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar, a teaspoon of xylitol contains no carbohydrates and has 9.6 calories versus 15 calories in sugar.
Xylitol, which has no aftertaste, is becoming more popular as a natural sweetener. Unlike many sugars, it does not contribute to tooth decay, but rather prevents it, nor does it raise insulin levels. It produces 40 percent less food energy than sugar and is absorbed more slowly. It is, therefore, becoming popular in diabetic food.
As a dietary supplement, common usage is between 4g (rounded ~1 tsp) to 10g (rounded ~2 1/2 tsp) for cavity prevention. It is recommended to not consume more than 30g per day, may cause digestive irritation.
