Xylitol is - like sugar - a sweet, white powder and serves as a sugar substitute. Also called birch sugar.
Often contained in sugar-free chewing gum. Sugar substitutes are so-called sugar alcohols. They sweeten almost as much as sugar, but provide only half the calories.
Xylitol can apparently support the mineralisation of the teeth. In addition, studies show that the dental plaque of xylitol users was reduced by half. It is sufficient if the teeth and the oral cavity are merely moistened with xylitol. (e.g. by using a mouth rinse).
Uses: Toothpaste, tooth gel, mouthwash.
Use this sugar substitute in moderation at first. Your body needs to adjust first.
