Xylitol is Safe, Endorsed by Experts

Xylitol is a safe, all-natural sweetener that helps to protect your teeth. In 1963, a commission of the FDA approved xylitol as safe for human consumption and acceptable as a food additive.

Dentists around the world recommend xylitol. As recently as September 2011, articles in the Journal of the American Dental Association have highlighted xylitol’s tooth-pleasing goodness. Other national dental associations in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Estonia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Ireland all recommend xylitol to help protect teeth.

Xylitol Comes from Nature

Xylitol is not a chemical or a drug. It's completely natural and is even produced by the human body during normal metabolism.

German chemists discovered the naturally occurring sugar in the late 19th century in birch tree bark, and since then, research shows it can be found in a wide variety of fibrous plant materials.

All of our xylitol products are made from 100% all-natural pharmaceutical grade xylitol and are guaranteed to be free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and pesticides. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of quality in our products.

Our xylitol is made in GMP certified facilities. Our raw xylitol manufacturers have received ISO9001 and KOSHER certifications.

Xylitol is Safe for Children

Xylitol has been approved for use by people of all ages. Studies suggest that children especially can benefit from using xylitol.

Ideal exposure time is best determined by the family’s dentist or pediatrician. Dosage amounts will vary as children age, but in most cases 6 grams a day will provide tremendous benefits.

Some dentists also recommend that the parents of young children regularly use xylitol gum or mints to reduce the spread of tooth-destroying bacteria. Studies have shown tremendous benefits for children whose mothers used xylitol gum during the first few years of her child’s life.
