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.
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!
Will Xylitol Cause Stomach Pain?
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.
Xylitol Health Benefits
Extensive short-term and long-term studies have concluded that xylitol is safe to use in daily consumption. Xylitol can help manage diabetes, hypertension and obesity when used as part of a healthy lifestyle!

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.

I did research on this, and found that it has many health benefits.
It is made from White Birch and I'm happy that I found this.
I also like the fact that it is granular, and not powdery. It dissolves very quickly and hot liquids.
It tastes like sugar, but it is not two times sweeter like artificial sweeteners. So you use it just as you would if you were using regular sugar.
I have included three photos, and if you find that my review has helped you in any way, please be so kind and click the yes box below.

I suppose it does not matter if you use it for cooking/eating. I use xylitol mouth rinses and the fine crystals work so much better as you put half a teaspoon in your mouth, wait until it dissolves in your saliva and then swish for a couple of minutes and spit it out. Big crystals don't dissolve as fast and feel grainy on the teeth.
I mainly use this for my organic tea. I think the taste is good, and Birch Xylitol is good for your teeth.
For some people you can get diarrhea if you use to much, or a tummy ache..Has never happened to me.
I have used this to sprinkle a Little bit over sliced yams, covered with foil, put in the oven.Once yams
Where soft, took the foil off for 15 mins. They tasted Like candied yams, no after taste.
If you do use Xylitol for cooking, make sure your dogs Do Not eat it.It will kill them!
