Xylitol is a naturally-occurring sugar substitute. It is found in many fruits and vegetables and is even produced by the human body itself. Commercially, xylitol is made from xylan rich hemi-cellulose sources such as birch and other hardwoods.
Xylitol is the sweetest of all bulk sugar substitutes. It is just as sweet as sucrose, tastes as good and has no after-taste. Xylitol has 40% less calories than sugar and for this reason, a caloric value of 2.4 kcal/g is accepted for nutritional labeling in the EU and the US.
B-Fresh is committed to using only the finest ingredients. Our xylitol is made in the US to the highest possible standards. At B-Fresh we sweeten all of our products with 100% xylitol because it is the purest sugar substitute.
