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