  • Since xylitol cannot be utilized by bacteria that are involved in the formation of dental cavities, it is used for example in sugar-free chewing gum and other products that are beneficial to teeth.

  • Xylitol evokes a feeling of coolness on the tongue and so may be used to support the "fresh" tastes and flavours, e.g. of menthol.

  • Since xylitol does not react with amino acids present in food, browning reactions during baking and frying can be avoided by the application of xylitol.

  • Sugar substitutes such as xylitol are partly absorbed by the small intestine and subsequently are absorbed unaltered into the large intestine, where they bind water. In cases of increased absorption, this may lead to diarrhoea.

  •  Studies have shown that humans can utilize several hundred grams of xylitol a day without any toxic results.  The body normally metabolizes up to 15 grams a day.  Research has related the following health benefits with xylitol :prevention of cavities and ear infections, can decrease appetite and promote weight loss, and aid in bone mineralisation.  Ingestion of xylitol has not been shown to increase triglyceride or cholesterol levels.

Diabetes

Possessing approximately 33% fewer calories, xylitol is a lower-calorie alternative to table sugar. Absorbed more slowly than sugar, it does not contribute to high blood sugar levels or the resulting hyperglycemia caused by insufficient insulin response. This characteristic has also proven beneficial for people suffering from metabolic syndrome, a common disorder that includes insulin resistance, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and an increased risk for blood clots. Xylitol is used as a sweetener in medicines, chewing gum and pastilles.
