Xylitol, birch sugar 1 kg from BIOVA
It is a sugar substitute with comparable sweetening power to household sugar or sucrose, but with about 40% fewer calories.
Xylitol has a slight cooling effect when dissolved. It is made of wood. The sugar is a fine-grained powder. The maximum grain size is smaller than that of household sugar. Therefore, it can clump even without moisture. If you find a clump, it can be easily removed.
Birch sugar xylitol from Finland
This birch sugar is also very well known under the name “xylitol”. It comes exclusively from European production. Mainly from Finland. The raw material basis for the production is the hardwood of birch and also of beech. It comes from sustainable forestry. The extraction of xylitol is very complex. In a technically complex process, xylose, or xylitol, is extracted from the wood sugar. For this purpose, finely chopped wood is mixed with water. This wood-water mass is then cleaned and filtered until all foreign substances have been completely separated from the xylitol. No tree is felled solely for the production of xylitol. Rather, the wood comes from paper production. Es handelt sich also lediglich um Holz, welches für die Papierherstellung nicht genutzt werden kann. Therefore, it is particularly well suited for birch sugar.
The special feature of xylitol is its cariostatic and anticariogenic effect, which has been proven in various clinical studies. Birch sugar has slightly less sweetening power than commercial household sugar. It only slightly influences the blood sugar level. Therefore, it is also very suitable for diabetics.
Consumption is not recommended for children under 3 years of age. But adults should also make the switch to this sugar slowly. Excessive consumption of xylitol can have a laxative effect. Animals should not be given xylitol!
Differences between this xylitol and cheap xylitol, e.g. from China
In the case of “cheap xylitol”, corn is often used as the basic ingredient. This product is made exclusively from wood or from the xylose contained in it, from which the xylitol is then extracted.
Use birch sugar for all foods, pastries and drinks. Dosage in a ratio of 1:1 to normal household sugar. This xylitol is not certified organic.
