Is it natural or another chemical sweetner?

It is not a chemical sweetener and is actually good for your teeth and not bad for your health as other sweeteners are. However, I don't think it's raw.

i don't know if its raw but i know gabriel cousens encourages it. i'm always weary of the kind available in my area though, because its derived from corn.

Thank you for your information.
The Now brand is derived from corn.
Does anyone know of a brand that is only derived from Birch/:D

I'm wanting to know the answer to this question too because I read conflicting arguments. I know it's meant to be good for your teeth and a bunch of other things but not sure about the raw factor.
The one I get is non GMO and from corn cobs.
Betsy - If you're buying it, I suggest getting the brand which isn't from Birch Trees because it's better for the environment :)

I loooooooooooooove xylitol!! It's just too flippin' awesome. I don't regard it as being "artificial" since your own body produces it and it is naturally present in fruits and veggies.

But it is seriously processed to become all white and crystallized isn't it?

It's not raw. I'm curious as to the process they use to make it as it is. Here's what I could find:
