  • Xylitol with Stevia Extract

  • Low glycemic index

  • Derived from a corn source

An aspartame-free sugar substitute from NOW Foods. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is naturally present in small amounts in various fruits and vegetables. The Finnish name for Xylitol is "koivusokeri," or birch sugar, a reference to the extraction of Xylitol from birch bark. Considerable amounts of Xylitol are formed in the body every day as a result of normal metabolic processes. Although it is classified as a carbohydrate, this sweet crystalline substance is slowly absorbed from the digestive tract and does not cause rapid rises in blood glucose. In addition, the caloric impact of Xylitol is typically about 40% lower than other carbohydrates, making it a healthy addition to any diet. Contains no salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish, preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by healty sweetner no after taste,low in carbs,controls bad breath! March 23, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by good value- poor product nothing against Swanson, but I will never buy this Xylitol product again. Weird, funky metallic taste. (And I know my artificial sweeteners/stevia/xylitol - so I have a unusually high tolerance for weird sweet tastes! ;) I usually like NOW products, so not sure why they are SOOOO off the mark with this one! I would recommend Truvia over this (I know... GMO... but the taste is FAR superior). I'll hoping to find one with non-GMO/good taste... August 31, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by not sweet enough This product doesn't seem to be as sweet as Stevia packet products. I have to use two packets of it in my oatmeal, whereas only one packet of a Stevia sweetener is sufficient. This makes the product twice as expensive for me as expected. February 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only Sweetener to use!! This is the only sweetener I use! Swansons has the best price too. September 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A tasty and healthy sweetener I discovered this product when I wanted to wean myself off Splenda. It's both tasty and healthy, and I've been using it for two years now with great satisfaction. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I hope this product never changes I've been using this product for many years. Xylitol on its own is not sweet enough, and stevia has an overpowering taste. This combination is perfect. Thankfully it's GMO-free. Also, studies have shown that xylitol supports gum health, & I believe this to be true. I am a nutritionist (and an anti-GMO activist) & I often recommend this product. August 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by No bitter after taste I use to use liquid stevia by NOW. With the mix of xylitol and stevia there is no bitter after taste. It's a perfect balance. The price here is $2.5 cheaper than what my local health food store sells it for. August 8, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by sweet This product is actually too sweet. I use half a packet at a time. August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is Fabulous I use this sweetener in everything. I also use it in baking. I contacted the company about the source of the xylitol, and they told me it was from non-GMO corn cobs. They also test the xylitol to make sure that it is non-GMO. I used it to make Dr. Andrew Weil's Banana Nut Bread. Instead of the canola oil, (canola is GMO or a genetically modified organism), I used organic applesauce. Instead of the half cup of honey, I used 1Tb of honey and 6 packets of Xylitol Plus. Instead of transfat laden and GMO containing flavored coffee creamers, I use Xylitol Plus and vanilla extract in my coffee. It's better than those artificially flavored coffee creamers. At Whole Foods Market, they are selling this product for almost $9. Can you say whole paycheck? It's also more expensive on amazon. For info on the dangers that GMOs pose to our environment, human and animal health, go to Dr. Mercola's website. January 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The BEST This is the best sweetener ever made and I have tried most of them. Something about xylitol with the stevia makes a perfect combination for sweetening whatever (sometimes straight stevia is a bit cloying). For iced tea in particular this is absolutely the BOMB. Highly recommended. June 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by i prefer this over stevia This has a nice natural sweet taste and can be used in cooking as a suagr substitute. I like it a lot better than stevia which is too sweet for me. Try it. November 12, 2010
