Buy now: Xylitol 1 kg
You sweet tooth wants sugar, but the tooth fairy has been getting more and more nervous with your sugar consumption? Time for an alternative which helps you satisfy your cravings, create spectacular cakes and caramelise nuts without having to pay yet another visit to the dentist. We present our xylitol, your trusty sugar substitute!
Birch sugar and xylitol - what are they?
The words birch sugar or xylitol are used synonymously for xylitol. This is a sugar substitute that we produce from corn cobs: Because the leaves and remains of the corncob naturally contain xylan! This is then converted into crystalline xylitol. Sounds complicated, but it works great in practice: birch sugar has almost the same sweetening power as sugar; with 40% fewer calories per 100 grams*. Moreover, it does not have an unfamiliar taste like coconut blossom sugar. And it even has some health benefits. We quote the European Commission: "Consumption of foods/drinks containing xylitol instead of sugar causes blood glucose levels to rise less after their consumption than when consuming foods/drinks containing sugar."
Xylit vs. erythritol – which is the best substitute?
Along with xylitol, erythritol is also a beloved sugar substitute. But which one is best for which uses? Xylitol is the one closest to refined sugar. You can substitute it 1:1 with refined sugar, it does not crystallise when baking and can be used for doughs and jams, as well as caramelisation. Erythritol is better suited for ice creams and drinks. If you have looked around our shop, you may have noticed that we are big xylitol fans: we have sweetened our chocolate drops, chocolate protein crunchies with cinnamon and our toffee protein balls with xylitol, among many other products.
