Newport Flavors' Xylitol has many other benefits, other than being a great sweetener. Numerous studies have show that Xylitol actually helps prevent tooth decay.

As a result Xylitol is recommended and frequently used by Dental Practices around the world. Xylitol also helps to stabilize insulin and hormone levels. Thus it is recommended for intake by diabetics and individuals with hypoglycemia.

Xylitol is from a group of sweeteners that are often used in food called sugar alcohols or polyols. These in fact are not either sugar or alcohols, but natural compounds formed from sugars. Xylitol is the NATURAL sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar with many exceptional benefits: Great Taste- Other sugar alcohols like sorbitol, lactitol, mannitol, maltitol, or erythritol are only a fraction of the sweetness as sugar. Xylitol, however, is just as sweet as sugar and does not require any other synthetic sweeteners to give a great sweet taste. The competition may also use these sugar alcohols but may still include synthetic sweeteners to increase the sweetness. Xylitol doesn't need any synthetic sweeteners to give a great 100% natural flavor. Lower Calories- Xylitol has about 40% lower calories than sugar, with all the great taste! It is good for anyone who is on a diet, watching their calories, or just wants to be healthier.
