Xylitol sugar 5 x 225g
Facts about birch sugar
Birch sugar gained notoriety mainly through his reputation as a caries prophylaxis. Birch sugar is used in dental and oral care products as xylitol toothpaste, mouthwash or for cleaning dentures, braces, etc.
However, as the sweetness of birch sugar is close to that of table sugar (sucrose) - 98%, but with far fewer calories (1 gram of sucrose = 4 calories, 1 gram of xylitol = 2.4 calories), it will always cook and bake with more use. Also, various foods with xylitol, e.g. Chocolate, chewing gum or sweets are increasing popularity. Since less insulin is required for the metabolism of xylitol than for table sugar, the sugar substitute is also well suited for diabetics.
