That having been said, make sure you are willing to make a commitment to this product. Xylitol is not digested, but rather is consumed in part by the bacteria in your stomach. There is an adjustment period while you build up the suitable level of bacteria (good bacteria, mind you) in your intestines to consume this stuff. Until that time (and if you go on antibiotics you will experience this again), Xylitol can give you the runs, and gas. Once you are fully adjusted (takes a couple of weeks), then you will be fine.
As to this particular brand of Xylitol, it was very conveniently packaged in single-serving packs (4g) which makes monitoring your intake of this particular stuff very easy. I have to say that the shipping is very good. I had the product in hand about 4 days after ordering it. The retailer has brick-and-mortar locations local to me, but they didn't carry this product there. I have since ordered again via Amazon, with the same great shipping results.
I thought, with the name "Xylitol" that it HAD to be a chemical compound, but because she was into all-natural health like me AND she is super tiny, that she must not be lying!
Who knew that such a tiny packet could finally change my life. I am finally optimistic in my battle of the buldge because now, there is not only an alternative sweetener to sugar, but that it is absolutely VOID of ANY after-taste AND actually anti-bacterial??!!!
I ramble, but seriously, I am chewing the ("Spry") gum that Xlear sent me as a sample after purchasing this 5lb bag of Xlyo-Sweet and what a yummy piece of gum! My mouth feels clean, even after 8 in the morning and having my 'sweetened' cup of coffee, they almost feel like I just hopped out of the dentist chair!
Xlear is new to Amazon and they want to widen their customer base, so I am going to go give them a good review, as I received my order SUPER fast AND with sample gum :-)
So I called the vendor of this product (the Vitamin Shoppe). They said I would have to call the manufacturer to find out and gave me Xlear's phone number (801-224-0937). That number wasn't too helpful because it didn't allow me to reach a live person, but after pursuing several extensions, I reached a live Xlear customer service rep at (877) 599-5327. She immediately and firmly said that all Xlear Xylitol comes from China. She added, "Most of the Xylitol you're going to find WILL be from China."
As much as I love Xylitol, I'm determined not to buy any from China. For the past year, I've been buying one-pound bags of "Emerald Forest" xylitol from my local grocery store. The bags are marked "Made in the USA / U.S.-Grown Birch Trees." So the news about Xlear's origins came as a surprise to me.
However, the 1-pound local bags of Emerald Forest cost $10 each, so I was searching for a better price. Guess I'll contact Emerald Forest to determine whether their larger sizes of Xylitol (the ones available on Amazon) are still from the U.S. I'm willing to pay more to avoid consuming any food or supplements from China.
And since erythritol is so similar to xylitol, this leaves me wondering where erythritol comes from....Has anyone checked that out?
Decided to finish checking things out before posting this review.....So I just located emeraldforestsugar dot com, got the corporate phone number (866-948-1999) and immediately reached a live person.Read more ›
I wonder if residual chemicals from the processing were left in high concentrations!!!!
I bought two bags, spent fifty bucks. Now I have to eat it. :(
It gives me coffee a weird flavor when the previous brands worked without being detected. I have gone back to using regular sugar, which I am addicted to. I bought this to break free from table sugar and I am afraid to bake with it.
I used it in a carrot cake and the flavor was less pronounced in the cake itself, but in the icing, which was a simple glaze with cream cheese added, it tasted very unpleasant. I am a professional pastry chef and I had plans to use xylitol in my foods and help spread the message of xylitol in America. If I can't get solid quality xylitol in large quantities, I don't know how that will happen.
I'm going to keep making things with it. Maybe using it in desserts with strong flavors like chocolate will make it less appalling. But I won't dare put it in my coffee again. I'd hate to use splenda, because I don't believe in using chemical sweeteners, but I'd have to buy a separate brand of xylitol for my drinks and this stuff isn't cheap.
And yes, I experienced stomach cramps from this brand. I was used to Now Foods brand (I think that's what the brand is called,) and when I switched to this, I got cramps again. I guess they may be different enough to also affect my body differently...
I hope this brand is safe!
Edited to add: Weeks after this review I contacted the company and they picked up my bags via UPS and sent me two more with very little smell whatsoever. And the taste was greatly improved.Read more ›
