Total Sweet Xylitol is a natural sugar alternative that is made from sustainable European birch and beech wood. Although it looks and tastes just like normal granulated sugar, and can be used in exactly the same way in hot drinks, baking or sprinkled on your favourite fruit or cereals, it has some surprising health benefits…
Whilst Total Sweet Xylitol has 40% less calories than sugar and less than half the ‘available’ carbohydrates it is it’s low GI (glycaemic index) value that sets it about from the crowd and means that it is suitable for those with diabetes*, dieters and those looking to reduce sugar in their everyday lives.
Xylitol also actively promotes healthy teeth. It’s been seen that when it breaks down in the mouth it makes an alkaline environment which helps reduce dental bacteria and plaque.
Total Sweet has the same sweetness and texture as normal granulated sugar so there’s no need for any special recipes or measures, you simply replace sugar one for one, in food or hot drinks, with Total Sweet to make healthier bakes.
*if in any doubt always consult your health advisor
Healthy by Nature Ltd, the creators of Total Sweet Xylitol, was formed in 2005 by a small group of health conscious friends who began to feel concerned about the amount of so called “health products” emerging on the market.
They’d had enough of seeing the phrase “health food” exploited to sell poor, undifferentiated products for large profits and wanted to offer something different.
Their philosophy is that outstanding, innovative and high quality products with real benefits drive success themselves, without the need for gimmicky marketing, and believe Total Sweet fulfils all of those criteria.
Healthy by Nature was born from a belief that true health products should:
- Have no hidden secrets
- Not pretend to be something they’re not
- Have easy to read labels
- Have real, tested and proven health benefits
- Not compromise quality or taste for those benefits
