Xylitol is a sugar alcohol compound with the molecular formula C5H12O5. It is a colourless or white crystalline solid that is easily soluble in water. Xylitol is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits, vegetables and cereals. Humans produce small amounts of xylitol through normal metabolism.
Xylitol is a sweetener, used as a food additive and sugar substitute, with the same sweetness as sucrose. It contains only 2.4 calories per gram, 40% less than regular sugar. Xylitol has a sweet taste and low absorption rate, and the rate of increase in blood sugar after consumption is much lower than that caused by the consumption of glucose.
1、Xylitol powder has a curative effect on weight loss, diabetes and pneumonia.
2、Xylitol powder can prevent tooth decay and improve immunity of the body.
3、Xylitol powder can promote the role of beneficial bacteria and improve the immunity of body.
4、Cakes made with xylitol powder are softer than those made with sucrose because it has a moisturizing effect.
5、Xylitol powder can absorb more heat than other polyols, so food made with xylitol has a cool taste and keeps the original flavour of the food.
