Xylitol: The Naturally Healthy Choice
Nothing is more important than your family’s health. You watch what they eat and prefer products made from all natural ingredients. We understand. That's why Epic products contain Xylitol.
Xylitol is not a chemical or a drug. It is an all-natural sweetener found in many fruits and vegetables, including raspberries and plums. It's completely natural and is even produced by the human body during normal metabolism.
Experts consider it a healthy alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners.
In fact, xylitol tastes and looks like sugar. German chemists discovered the naturally occurring sugar in the late 19th century in birch tree bark, and since then, it’s also been naturally found in fruits and vegetables.
We choose corn. It’s renewable, and it affords us greater opportunities.
Marketing myths abound that the plant source of xylitol impacts the end product (i.e., corn vs. birch), but any scientist worth his sweetener will tell you there’s no molecular difference in the harvested end product with regards to its source. None. Zip.
Epic xylitol comes from some remarkable family corn farmers in China who help us go to exhausting lengths to bring you the best and purest pharmaceutical-grade xylitol on Earth.
Using non-GMO, renewable corn crops, we can safely harvest and produce enough xylitol to power our small company (and it’s eco-friendly-smiling customers) and sleep soundly at night knowing we’re stewards of the earth and future generations.
New customers typically start with one of our best-selling Slippery Smile Kits, but we encourage you to check out all our products and learn what’s possible though an all-natural, healthy sweetener that protects your teeth and sweetens your tasty treats.
