What is Xylitol?
Xylitol is a naturally-occurring sugar alcohol that is found in a variety of fruits and vegetables as well as in birch trees. Xylitol is also produced in small amounts by the human body through normal metabolic processes. Xylitol is used to make medicine, toothpaste and mouthwash and is one of the most popular sugar substitutes used in sugar-free candies, mints, chewing gums, desserts and much more!
Xylitol Production Process
Xylitol is produced by extracting the all-natural sugar alcohol contained in the bark of birch trees. Because we use no corn ingredients, Health Garden’s xylitol is certified gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance or sensitivity.
Will Xylitol Cause Stomach Upset?
Xylitol is usually well tolerated by most people. However, some people may be more sensitive to xylitol, especially in large amounts. For people with preexisting digestive issues, we recommend introducing xylitol slowly to your diet, which will allow your body to adjust gradually to the increased amount.

Dental Benefits of Xylitol
What causes tooth decay? Foods containing sugar provide bacteria with energy, allowing them to multiply. As the bacteria digest the sugar, they produce acids that gradually eat away at the enamel that protects the surface of teeth, causing tooth decay and cavities to form.
How does xylitol help? The bacteria are unable to digest xylitol, which reduces the overall amount of bacteria. No acid is formed so the protective enamel layer is unharmed. The reduction in acid also keeps the pH level of saliva neutral which helps protect the teeth. In addition, the bacteria do not stick well to the teeth without the energy provided by sugar and the amount of plaque is decreased. Xylitol can even stimulate saliva to repair damaged enamel! Many brands of toothpaste and mouthwash include xylitol for its powerful impact.
Warning: Xylitol is Not Safe for Pets!
Xylitol is 100% safe for people to consume, however numerous studies have shown that xylitol is extremely toxic to dogs and other pets and can be fatal if ingested. Keep xylitol and products containing xylitol out of reach of pets. If you suspect your pet has eaten something containing xylitol, contact your veterinarian immediately.
