Why You’ll Love It

There’s a lot to like about Xylitol. This naturally-occurring sugar alcohol is one of the healthiest and most unique sweeteners you’ll find. Unlike sugars such as sucrose and fructose, NOW Real Food™ Xylitol is a sugar alcohol, which doesn’t promote tooth decay. Even though it’s classified as a carbohydrate, it 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 Xylitol a healthy sweetener that’s hard to beat. Xylitol is commercially produced from the cellulose of wood, sugar cane pulp, certain seed hulls, and/or corn cobs. NOW® Real Food Xylitol is produced from non-GMO corn cobs.

About This Brand

Since 1968, NOW Foods has prided itself on being a leading producer of natural products, paving the way for the healthy foods and natural supplements in the mainstream market. Approximately half a century ago, entrepreneur Elwood Richard started a small chain of health food stores, known as Health House, in the Chicagoland area. With his scientific background evoking his passion for health foods and nutritional supplements, it laid the early foundation for his company. When the high cost of his stores’ health food products deterred business, he started his own natural products manufacturing company to supply his stores, which afforded him complete control over product cost and quality. From this moment NOW Foods was born. Today NOW is still owned by the Richard family and has grown to become one of the most identifiable brands, delivering a widespread line of wholesome and natural products. NOW has always remained true to Elwood’s original vision—to meet consumer need for...

Reviews For Xylitol

Based on 15 Reviews

Just like sugar

I love this sweetener. It's the best sugar alternative that I've tried. It's sweet like sugar without an funky after taste that stevia and other sugar alternatives have. I love it!

- Robbie

Xylitol

Luv it!!

- Leslie

Great alternative to sugar!

Love this a sugar replacement and love it! For everyday use I use it as a 100% replacement. For baking I do find it a bit drier than sugar so depending on recipe, I add a bit less than called for or add a bit more liquid.

- Brenda

Great

Love that this tastes and looks like normal sugar but isn't super bad for you. The grands loved it so it past the kids test.

- Janette

Great taste

I love this xylitol. It tastes very similar to sugar, and I use it in all my sugar-free baking. You can grind it in a coffee grinder to have powdered 'sugar', which often mixes better. It doesn't have any funky aftertaste, so I can even use it to sweeten drinks like coffee, without greatly affecting flavor. It does not cause me any digestive distress, so I have no issues using it whenever I would want something sweetened.

- Felicia

Bakes like sugar

I've used xylitol for a few years now. It measures and bakes (from my experience) much like sugar. Makes for easy substitutions.

- Jolene

Xylitol helps reduce my sugar intake

Technically xylitol is a sugar but using it instead of regular sugar has reduced the cravings for sweets that I have had for a long time. Non organic beets are genetically modified and it's hard to tell if they are the sugar used in some store items. I use xylitol in my smoothies and it helps with the sweetness issue.

- Ruth

Good for homemade toothpaste

I use this to make homemade toothpaste. This xylitol makes it slightly sweet.

- Kelli

Not made from birch

This product is made from corn not the birch tree.

- Mary

Good substitute

Love it for a sugar substitute. It doesn't bother my gut like some others have mentioned and doesn't have a bad aftertaste like stevia.

- Deb

Great Substitute Sugar

To me this dissolves quicker than regular sugar and I think it's sweeter because I have to use less than I normally would which is great. Taste the same as sugar to me, but with less calories.

- Samantha

Good alternative for sugar

I've just started using this as a substitute for sugar. It tastes slightly cold (like, refreshing), but has no weird aftertaste like other sugars. Be careful to not start using too much at once, because it can make your stomach hurt! I really like this, though!

- Rachel

Tastes like sugar

I really love the taste of xylitol. I use it in my coffee and tea and it really tastes sweet like sugar. This will be my sweetener from now on.

- Ana Maria

Great Taste

I'm so happy I tried this product. Finally, something sweet that is not sugar!

- Ana

Blows Stevia out of the water

So much better than Stevia with no funky aftertaste.

- Dawn
