Xylitol

North America prides itself on producing the finest quality Xylitol derived entirely from Birch products.

Xylitol is an all natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar.  It is naturally occurring in many of the fruits and vegetables we eat on a daily basis.  It contains only 2.4 calories per gram and is slowly absorbed as a complex carbohydrate.  Xylitol looks like sugar, tastes like sugar, and is the same sweetness as sugar – making it the ideal natural sugar replacement.
