Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is produced from hard wood sources, predominantly Birch and Beech. It is a low GI food (with a Glycaemic Index of 7) which makes it a suitable sweetening alternative for diabetics people with impaired glucose metabolism.
Xylitol is a low kilojoule sugar substitute with 40% less kilojoules than sugar, negligible carbohydrate content and a low GI of 7.
It is a good option for those with diabetes, as xylitol is metabolised slowly by the body and doesn't cause the 'sugar spike' that may be experienced with other sugar products, leading to a subsequent drop in blood sugar and a craving for more sweetness.
