Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener. It's commonly extracted from fruits and vegetables, and easily substitutes for sugar. A desirable source is birch bark or bark from other hardwoods. It also occurs naturally in our bodies. .
The bacteria Streptococcus mutans causes cavities, and thrives on the six-carbon sugar structure of fructose and glucose. Unlike sugar, xylitol has a five-carbon sugar structure.
Because bacteria can't metabolize xylitol in the same way, no teeth-decaying acids are produced.
Xylitol also aids in saliva production. Increased saliva prevents bacteria from sticking to teeth, which prevents harmful decay-causing germs to grab hold.
Absolutely! In fact, xylitol is a preferred sugar substitute for those with diabetes. It metabolizes slowly, and doesn't raise insulin levels. Of course, always be sure to check with your doctor about any changes you make to your diet.
When using xylitol for oral health, exposure time is as important as volume consumed. Xylitol recommends five exposures per day. Along with using xylitol toothpaste or mouthwash in the morning and evening, enjoy xylitol candies or gum between meals.
Using xylitol products up to seven times a day will not cause oral health complications.
Another hint: Don't bite into xylitol candies! Allow xylitol to melt in your mouth for maximum exposure.
Exactly like regular candy!
Xylitol is widely considered to be one of the best-tasting sugar substitutes. Unlike some artificial sweeteners, xylitol hard candy tastes like candy made with sugar.
