Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that's naturally present in small amounts of a number of fruits and vegetables, and is even formed in our bodies every day as a result of normal metabolic processes. NOW derives its Xylitol from a corn source. Although classified as a carbohydrate, it is absorbed quite slowly in the digestive tract; does not cause rapid rises in blood glucose; and is about 40% lower in calories than other carbohydrates (by weight). Xylitol's been used since the 1970s in candy and gum; dentists and nutritionists encourage its use because the bacteria in the mouth which cause cavities cannot feed on this particular sugar alcohol. The Xylitol in these packets have also been supplemented with Stevia Extract, another natural sweetener, to enhance the taste.
