I personally love Xylitol - I have no digestive ill effects from it at all, though I do from many other sugar alcohols. I think a lot of that depends on your own personal body chemistry, so if you need a sugar replacement you should try a lot of small amounts of the different sugar alcohols. For me, maltitol and sorbitol are awful, but xylitol is just fine. Of all the sugar replacements I have tried, I think xylitol tastes the most like sugar. It has a nice, grainy texture like sugar does, which makes it appealing for applications like sprinkling it on fruit, and it isn't overly-sweet the way I find most sugar replacements are. If anything, I would say measure for measure it is slightly less sweet than sugar, which I actually like as I'm trying to reduce my sweet tooth in general.

HOWEVER, EVERYONE WHO OWNS A DOG NEEDS TO BE AWARE THAT XYLITOL IS DEADLY TO DOGS. I am not some weirdo posting rumors - please google xylitol dogs and the very first entry is from Snopes.com stating that this is true. As little as 3 grams (less than a teaspoon) can kill a 65 pound dog. And this bag contains 453 grams!!!

I still use XyloSweet all the time; I am just very, very careful when I use it when my dog is around because he's a floor-licking sort of guy. And while I never give him people-food, I know others often do and you obviously can't do that with anything you've made with Xylitol.

Please, please upvote this review if you can - I'm concerned that no warning appears on the bag or in the company's copy and that none of the highly-voted reviews discuss this issue. It is very easy to prevent what could be a deadly accident for your dog!

I've tried several brands of Xylitol and only disliked one ("Ideal") because it contained other ingredients. This brand does not. The granules are sugar sized and it tastes like sugar and can be used like sugar. I even put it in my coffee bean grinder to see if I could turn it into powdered sugar and it worked (very quickly) and was delicious. The down side is that it became very hard a couple days later, but that may happen with regular sugar too...I know that powdered sugar is sugar plus an ingredient to keep it "powdery" so this shouldn't be held against Xylitol.

Several things worth knowing about Xylitol:

1. It is very hard to tell the difference between Xylitol and sugar, both by the way it looks and the way it tastes. The only real difference is that it has a cooling effect on your tongue, rather like mint. It tastes like sugar on your tongue but I've found when cooking/baking with it, it takes a little bit extra (maybe 10%) to achieve the same sweetness. Also, it doesn't caramelize when heated. Xylitol definitely does not have a chemical taste to it like other sweeteners, which makes sense because it's not a synthesized product like other sweeteners. I far prefer it because I don't expect to hear about discoveries in ten or twenty years from now that it causes cancer or tumors.

2. If you want an artificial sweetener for diet purposes and don't care about chemicals, this probably isn't your best bet. It has fewer calories than sugar by about 40% but the artificial sweeteners have fewer calories. (I personally think chemicals are far more hazardous than calories, but to each his own!)

3. It kills harmful bacteria. A great use for this is dental care (you'll find it as an ingredient in many mouthwashes, toothpastes, and gum) and it works very well.

The country of origin of all products (but especially food products) should be clearly listed! Because the information was nowhere to be found in the amazon description, I emailed the company to find out where their products are manufactured, and I received this reply from Xlear: "The xylitol in our products is derived from Non-GMO corn that is grown and manufactured in China." I am going to buy the Health Garden Kosher Xylitol, which is made is the US and is derived from birch instead of corn.

Please be careful what you eat -- many products from China are unsafe. You can check the FDA website for details.

There are two mainstream commercial sources of Xylitol - Corn and Hardwood trees such as Birch. Many rumors have circulated on the internet regarding the benefits and or drawbacks of either. Here you can gather the facts.

The structure of Xylitol does not differ between corn based and birch based xylitol. However, it is a fact that the vast majority of corn based Xylitol found in North America is imported from China. Almost all imported Chinese Xylitol is derived from corn.

Also a fact is that most commercial sources of corn itself are genetically modified. This is not true of birch trees.

The process utilized in making birch based Xylitol is envirnmentally green and sustainable, in fact the process often uses caommercial scrap that may otherwise be discarded.

So is Birch better than corn? You be the judge, each individual can make up their mind. Prices are almost the same, if the description doesn't say American birch you can assume it's Chinese corn.

Anyone with common sense would probably figure out that a 5lb bag of Xylitol would be smaller than a 5lb bag of Splenda. However, I was actually surprised when it arrived. It was about 2/3 the size of a 5lb bag of sugar! So, I guess Xylitol weighs more than sugar, which makes it really, really, really expensive, instead of just really expensive.

This stuff tastes great and really does not have an aftertaste. I had been using Splenda, but wanted to get away from using artificial sweeteners. However, a huge drawback is the digestive problems I get every time I use Xylitol. I started out by just using a tsp/day in my coffee and thought I'd be able to work up to more. Nope, every time I try to use more, I spend the day in the bathroom. Literally, all day. Gross, but you need to know what this stuff will do to you! The good news is that it will last a long time since I can only consume a tsp/day.
