100% Pure Non-GMO Xylitol Granules
Great xylitol at fair price
This is a good quality xylitol made from birch trees from the US - most of the xylitol on the market comes from China. The grains are not as fine as sugar but it tastes just like sugar, with 30% less calories and with a very low glycemic index. Just keep it away from dogs, because it's poison to them. The only con is the cost - Swanson's is priced fairly compared to other brands.

Best sugar substitute ever
This product is great for anyone who adds sugar to anything (coffee for many people). It tastes every bit as good as sugar without all the harmful effects. Anyone you know who uses sugar or sugar substitutes needs to be uses this product.

5 star service
This is the best company I ever had a pleasure to deal with in regard to shipping. I paid for standard SHIPING and in couple days the product was in my home. The product are great and the value is very good. My first order was for one jar, the second was for two jars and I am planing to place an order for four jars. Thank you for an amazing service.

THE RIGHT SWEETENER
Excellent product. Taste and miscibility are good. For my taste buds, I find that 1 tsp provides just about the right sweetness to a glass water containing everything from my Matcha Green Tea to any of my various healthy "cocktails" consisting of different mixtures of amino acids powders, green powders (Chlorella and Spirulina), Vitamin C powder, psyllium husks, etc.. No bitterness or aftertaste. And it's good for my teeth. This is the way to go for a sweetener! Works for me.

I use this Xylitol to make my own toothpaste and I like the fact that it is derived from 100% non-GMO birchwood grown in the USA.
Other xylitol can made from corn husks which could possibly be from GMO corn.

An excellent substitute for sugar, healthier also

I want to eat healthier, but do not like any of the alternatives for sugar, such as stevia. This product taste just like sugar, I use in my coffee every morning. Great product.

It tasted closer to sugar than any other sweetner I ever tried. My only problem is it is expensive to use as a sugar substitute.

Good for dental health
Very good and I prefer this kind: from birch and non gmo. I use mainly for the dental benefits, and is a great sweetener.
Grain size doesn't matter to me much, but a finer grain size would be nice too.

Grain-free, Sweet, Digestive Perfection
My first review here: Swanson Premium
100% Pure Xylitol is the best I've tried, the real deal and birch-sourced, without the potential digestive unseemliness of corn-derived brands.( I react even to the very decent non gmo corn brand Xylosweet., which is priced better here.) But I prefer Swanson Premium
100% Pure Xylitol. It tastes amazing and substitutes suberbly for sugar, except needs less. No aftertaste, no bitterness whatsoever. Bakes well, good in hot and cold beverages, with none of the gastro distress like with other xylitols or the truly unhealthy sugar alcohols (mannitol, sorbitol) I'll pay more to get this brand, very pleased. Hint: if you want a powdered sugar consistency just give it a whirl in a coffee grinder or food processor.

great sugar sub
Xylitol has many qualities which you can google and find online, one of which is avoidance of GMO sugar products. I find X to be easy 1/1 and great for using with CHOCOLATE products. Where Stevia is DIFFICULT to use with cocoa powder, when I use Xtol I never ruin a recipe or have any waste...or leftovers! LOL I definitely recommend it also for making your own Truvia (I use small amount pure stevia, and then split half and half erythritol and xylitol for the bulking agents). I find mixing these sugar alcohols helps the body digest them and build enzymes making it easier to digest over time. So even despite the "bad rap" about sugar alcohols...they are like beans and cruciferous. The more you eat, the better you digest them. ;)

The thing I like most is no AFTERTASTE.

Tastes like sugar
I have a sweet tooth, usually when making my protein shakes I have to add creamers, peanut butter or anything to eliminate the artificial sweetness. I have tried liquid stevia and many other artificial sweeteners but they all tasted artificial. I really liked the flavor of this product, I tricked my dad into drinking tea with it and he had no idea. I have tried tricking him many times before but he always knew I was not using sugar, he goes through a 5 lbs bag of sugar per month so this will definitely help cut his sugar intake. I just wish it wasnt so expensive

This is good for sugar-free baking. has a mild artificial sweetness

Really like this xylitol. It is a staple in my house. I use it by mixing it with stevia. It's very easy to put through coffee grinder to make into powdered sugar!!

Swanson Premium Pure Xylitol is sweet without any after taste. I love the taste.

I love this product.
This product is great and is derived from birchwood, which I believe to be the preferred source for xylitol...plus you can't beat the price.

Trying to stop sugar and love to bake, so needed a way to have some desserts and still be healthy.
I use a combination of Xylitol and a bit of Stevia, once in awhile I use honey, but this Xylitol is the best as some is made with corn which I try to stay away from, I use natural from Birch. My friends love my baked goods, so it works well.

I love this product. It does not have a funny after tase like some sugar substitutes do. It does not ruin the tast of my shakes, tea or coffee.
I pour the container in a coffee bean grinder to grind up the crystals. This makes the product easier to dissolve in liquids. You don't have to do this but it does guarantee the crystals all dissolve, so there is no waste. I would like to use this in cooking but it would get too expensive. I hope the price comes down eventually.
