About Xylitol: Xylitol is a natural sweetener, present in the fibers of many plants including berries, oats, beets, sugar cane and birch. It has a low GI value of 7, meaning it has little effect on blood sugar levels and insulin. It is therefore seen as a useful alternative for those seeking low glycemic nutrition. It contains 40% fewer calories than sugar, only 2.4 calories per gram. It doesn’t directly contribute toward the growth of intestinal yeasts or Candida. Please note: Like chocolate, xylitol is toxic to dogs. Please keep candy away from your pets. In large quantities, it can have a mild laxative effect, causing digestive discomfort.
