Xylitol birch sugar from Finnish birch and beech wood

Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, which however has nothing to do with ordinary alcohol. Xylitol serves as a sugar substitute for sweetening drinks and food as well as for preventing plaque and tooth decay.

Cheap xylitol is mostly made from glucose from corn - often also from genetically modified corn. In contrast, high-quality xylitol is produced in a complex process by the hydrogenation of wood sugar (xylose). Since birch bark is traditionally used in Finland, the name birch sugar has become common. Our xylitol is made from Finnish birch and beech wood.

Why we like Xylitol

We've tried a range of natural sweeteners over the years, and after discovering Xylitol, it's one of our favorite sweeteners.

Xylitol has the same color and sweetness as white sugar and has no taste of its own, such as coconut blossom sugar.

In addition, the birch sugar is good for the teeth, contains 40% less calories compared to ordinary granulated sugar and has a low glycemic index.

Disadvantages are the much higher price. In addition, birch sugar, when consumed excessively, has a laxative effect and is toxic to dogs (see security alert).

Our Xylitol Birch sugar from Tautona

Tautona Xylit is of very high quality and is obtained from birch and beech wood from Finland. It is a 100% pure, white, granular product (like granulated sugar).

Due to the birch bark process, xylitol is not a raw food product.

Use

Xylitol looks and tastes like sugar. It is used 1: 1 like regular sugar, for example in hot and cold drinks, cakes and desserts. Since yeast xylitol can not metabolise, it is not suitable for yeast baked goods.

For home-made chocolate and raw cakes, it is advisable to grind the crystals to a powder (with blender or coffee grinder), thus achieving a more even result.

Xylitol belongs to the class of sugar alcohols, which can be laxative when consumed excessively. To avoid bloating and diarrhea, start with a small amount of about 1 tbsp a day to allow the body to adjust.

Security Alert

Xylitol is toxic to dogs because it causes them to rapidly lose their blood sugar and seizures. This is not unusual, because other foods for humans are toxic to dogs. Cats do not appear to be affected by xylitol.
