View Full Version : Zylosweet/Xylitol

I just read a recipe with an ingredient called zylosweet and see that it is xylitol.
Anyone have experience using this as a sweetener? I googled it and it looks like a great substitute for sweetening. Is it raw? I'm using dates and fruits these days after the great agave debacle :eek: but I was just curious if anyone has any thoughts on zylosweet.

have heard of xylitol, but don't know too much about it, except it is great for preventing cavities. Some sugarless gums use xylitol. Don't know if it is raw or not though

I don't think so...it is pure white and crystalized right?

You mean raw, as in non heated ? Because that wouldnt matter since most people dont eat it for its nutritional content.
Anway, its produced by fermentation ??
''Erythritol is much better than other sugar alcohol products on the market like Xylitol, Sorbitol and Malitol as it has been produced by fermentation and not by Hydrogenation. The fermentation process creates a superior flavour, without any aftertaste, and also eliminates the digestive complaints including diarrhea, gas and bloating frequently experienced by users of other sugar alcohols.''
