Xylitol by Bulk Powders 500g
Xylitol is a natural, great-tasting, sugar-free sweetener that provides the perfect alternative to regular sugar and other synthetic sweeteners. Xylitol powder contains approximately 40% less calories than sugar, making it a healthy choice - particularly for diabetics or anyone on a diet.
Xylitol has a Glycemic Index (GI) value of only 7; versus that of regular table sugar at 65 -100. The Glycemic Index indicates how quickly a food can increase blood glucose levels. With such a low score, Xylitol can be consumed with next to no rise in blood glucose levels; making it a much healthier option than higher GI carbohydrates.
Xylitol's lower GI rating also ensures that it keeps you fuller for longer, thus helping to reduce unnecessary snacking between meals. Interestingly, Xylitol is actually said to be good for teeth. It restores pH levels and aids calcium absorption; helping to reduce tooth decay and potentially reverse dental issues.
Xylitol can be added to all kinds of products, but would work, for example, particularly well with Unflavoured Protein. Other options include using Xylitol powder for baking, in hot drinks or as a sugar-replacement
