About Dragon Fruit (Pitaya): Dragon Fruit is antioxidant-rich, high in vitamin C and lycopene, and is known to improve metabolism and help decrease bad cholesterol levels, replenishing good levels. It was originally from Central America but now grows in Malaysia, Israel and Vietnam.
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.
