Xylitol : Natural Sweetener

>> Tuesday, December 16, 2008

One day, I prepared coffee for myself and for my father. I always love to have a sweeter taste, so I put enough sugar in to my cup. I stared at my father and thought if I am going to put sugar in to his cup since he is diabetic. Hmmm, I preferred not to add sugar, thus, he had to bear with the bitter taste of the coffee.

Because my father is diabetic, I surfed over the net to look for some natural sweetener that my father can use. Then, I found this new site about Emerald Forrest and its natural sweetener. Said company produce a natural sweetener called xylitol. This xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener which is derived from plant sources. Emerald Forest uses corn cobs to extract xylitol.

Furthermore, there are some great benefits if we are going to use this natural sweetener. It is good for our teeth because xylitol is a sugar alcohol, which means that it cannot be metabolized by bacteria in the mouth, thus, preventing dental caries.

More importantly, xylitol is safe for people with diabetes, just like my father. In the glycemic index, the refined sugar scores 100 whereas xylitol scores 7. Therefore, diabetics can safely use xylitol without worrying about any increase in their blood sugar level.

Finally, I am quite excited to start my online shopping now. Are you interested too? For more information, you can visit their web site and start shopping online immediately.
