Xylitol looks and tastes like table sugar, but it's a natural, low-calorie, low-carb substitute.
The chemical structure of xylitol inhibits the ability of our bodies to fully metabolise it well. For this reason, xylitol has a limited effect on blood sugar levels. Its low glycaemic index makes it a terrific solution for carb-counters as well as those trying to lose weight.
