Xylitol is a natural, non-fermentable sweetener that helps restore a proper pH balance to the mouth. A properly balanced pH creates an inhospitable environment for destructive bacteria including Streptococcus mutants. These types of bacteria are responsible for the formation of plaque. Xylitol is not actually a sugar, it’s a sugar alcohol.
However, Xylitol has been used as a sugar substitute for many years. This alcohol form of xylose has less effect on blood sugar or insulin levels compared with sucrose. A useful sugar substitute for diabetics, Xylitol can also inhibit the growth of several types of bacteria, including those that cause tooth decay and ear infections.
Xylitol occurs naturally in straw, corncobs, fruit, vegetables, cereals, mushrooms, and some seaweed. For use in food manufacturing, Xylitol is extracted from birch wood chips. Xylitol may be found in many foods labeled as “sugar-free,” including hard candies, cookies, soft drinks, and throat lozenges. Xylitol is recognized as a safe food additive by the U.S. government.
