Tips: *Xylitol: Pleasant, cooling sweetness with no aftertaste. Helps to maintain a balance of beneficial flora in the mouth and ear canal, especially for children. Its metabolism in the human body does not involve insulin and does not affect blood sugar levels. Provides 1/3 fewer calories than sugar - about 2.4 calories per gram. Ideal for people on sugar restricted or low carb diets.
