Xylitol
Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is produced from hard wood sources, predominantly Birch and Beech. (Ours is from birch)
It is a low GI food (with a Glycemic Index of 7) which makes it a suitable sweetening alternative for diabetics people with impaired glucose metabolism.
Xylitol is a low kilojoule sugar substitute with 40% less kilojoules than sugar, negligible carbohydrate content and a low GI of 7. 
It is a good option for those with diabetes, as xylitol is metabolised slowly by the body and doesn't cause the 'sugar spike' that may be experienced with other sugar products, leading to a subsequent drop in blood sugar and a craving for more sweetness.

While xylitol has been shown to be absolutely safe and generally healthy for both adults and children, the same cannot be said for all animals. 

🐕 Xylitol is toxic to dogs 🐕

This may be serious problem for people who share food with their pets. 

You cannot give pets any food containing xylitol.

 

In China, xylitol is the most common sugar substitute and is used by almost all diabetics. If you have not tried it, I encourage you to do your own research and experiment to see if it is for you.
