Nature’s Flavors' Xylitol Syrups are great tasting, natural sweeteners with fewer calories than sugar and actually fight cavities!
Simultaneously discovered by Emil Fischer in Germany, and M.G. Bertrand in France in the late 19th century, Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally found in a variety of fibrous vegetables and fruits including various berries, oats, mushrooms, corn husk, sugar cane and more recently, birch trees. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar, but with many exceptional benefits.
< Great Taste > Other sugar alcohols like sorbitol, lactitol, mannitol, maltitol, or erythritol are only a fraction of the sweetness as sugar. Xylitol, however, is just as sweet as sugar and does not require any synthetic sweeteners to provide a great sweet taste and 100% natural flavor.
< Lower Calories > Xylitol has about 40% fewer calories than sugar, with all the great taste! No nasty aftertaste and great for anyone on a diet, watching their calories, or just wants to be healthier. Although this product contains carbohydrates, many people don't count these carbohydrates because they have a minimal effect on blood glucose levels and have a lower calorie amount per gram. These products, in effect, have low Net Effective Carbs. Suitable for diabetics, Xylitol also has a low glycemic index value of 7, has minimal effect on blood sugar levels, and does not require insulin to metabolize. Nature’s Flavors' Xylitol Syrups aren’t only effective for those with diabetes or people with hypoglycemia, but for anyone who is sensitive to sugar.
< Dental benefits > Known to combat and repair cavities, Xylitol is a good sugar alternative for everyone because of its beneficial dental health propertes. Xylitol helps reduce dental cavities, plaque, and tooth decay. Studies have shown Xylitol to be cariostatic, meaning it reduces new tooth decay by inhibiting plaque and suppressing decay-causing bacteria. Studies further suggest this was due to Xylitol’s ability to decrease acidity created by bacteria in the mouth to a pH upwards of 7, making the saliva more basic. Alkaline, or basic saliva, has been shown to have increased saliva flow and increased calcium and phosphate levels. The increased levels of calcium and phosphate travel to areas that are deficient like areas of an emerging cavity. This may lead to the regeneration and hardening of teeth combating cavities. By switching to Nature’s Flavors' Xylitol Syrups, you may actually help damaged teeth grow stronger!
< Nose and Throat Benefits > Xylitol helps clear nasal passages and fight ear infections. Studies have shown that adding specific quantities of Xylitol to saline nasal spray, the effectiveness in clearing and moisturizing nasal passages increases. Another study suggests that bacteria adhere to tissue by forming sugar adhesion complexes. The ability for Xylitol to form many different sugar structures seems to disrupt bacterial ability to adhere to tissue, thereby inhibiting bacterial propagation. In practical terms, its effective in preventing the spread of germs. The actual process of chewing Xlyitol gum may prevent ear infections by clearing the middle ear of earwax. Recent studies also suggest Xylitol destroys bacteria that cause ear infections and ulcers, and may even help strengthen bones.
