Xylitol is a natural sweetener classified as a "sugar alcohol" that's derived from non-GMO corn. Unlike sugars such as sucrose and fructose, xylitol doesn't promote tooth decay. Even though it's classified as a carbohydrate, xylitol has a low glycemic impact due to its slow absorption in the digestive tract, and its caloric impact is around 1/3 lower than other carbohydrates, making it a healthy sweetener that's hard to beat.
