During product development of @fitlato we aimed to create a great tasting product but we also wanted to create a product that ethically matched our personalities. After researching all the sugar replacements on the market they not only had to be derived from nature we also looked for ones that had additional benefits.
Xyltiol has been shown to prevent dental caries with regular consumption in addition it is also approved by the American Diabetes Association as a suitable sugar substitutes for diabetics. Xylitol has been heavily researched for its role in prevention of dental cavities. Naturally occurring in fruits, vegetables and berries it is artificially manufactured from xylan-rich plant materials such as birch and beechwood. Xylitol has been accepted as a natural sweetener approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and the American Academy of Paediatric Dentistry.
Xylitol inhibits the growth of the bacteria that causes dental cavities. It does this because these bacteria (Steptococcus Mutans) cannot utilise xylitol to grow. Over time with xylitol use, the quality of the bacteria in the mouth changes and fewer and fewer decay-causing bacteria survive on tooth surfaces. Less plaque forms and the level of acids attacking the tooth surface is lowered. Decay-producing bacteria (Streptococcus Mutans (SM)) is also passed from mothers to their newborn children. Reducing the overall bacterial load in mothers therefore reduces bacterial transmission resulting in fewer cavities for the child.
These were some of the most heavily researched benefits we found when selecting xylitol as one of our sugar substitutes for @fitlato during product development. In addition to these widely researched benefits in preventing/ reducing dental caries xylitol has also been approved by the American Diabetes Association as a suitable sugar substitute. Xylitol has a lower glycemic index that sugar (100 vs 7 ) which attributes to a large reduction in insulin spike vs sugar and xylitol also has fewer calories.
The final tick of approval was the taste test!! Well xylitol trumps all other sugar substitutes on this front. Research has indicated that the sweetness level, mouth feel and taste of xylitol was the most like sugar. We here @fitlato totally agree with this.
