WHAT IS XYLITOL?
Xylitol is a sugar alcohol (sugar alcohols are neither sugars
nor alcohols) and a sugar alternative and is metabolized independent
of insulin. Small amounts are naturally found in fruits and
vegetables. Sugar alcohols can be manufactured from corn,
corn husks and specific hardwoods (birch). Sugar alcohols
are only partly absorbed by your body, therefore increase
blood glucose more slowly, have fewer calories and carbohydrates
than sugar and CONTAIN NO SUGAR.
The Glycemic Index of Food
The Glycemic Index is a scale that ranks carbohydrate-rich
foods by how much they raise blood glucose levels compared
to a standard food.
The standard food is glucose or white bread. Eating foods
with low glycemic index ratings may help you to control your
blood glucose, your cholesterol level, your appetite and reduce
your risk of heart disease or Type 2 Diabetes.
Depending on your personal disposition or medical condition,
the Canadian Diabetic Association recommends that a registered
dietitian should be consulted for guidance on food related
issues, as effects on blood glucose levels may vary from person

Animals metabolize food completely differently from humans.
Most people are aware that sugar and chocolate are not good
for our four legged begging friends. It is alleged, yet not
proven, that Xylitol should be added to the
NO-NO's for animals.
