Xylitol 100 % Pure Natural Sweetener Review and Giveaway!

Xylitol by Morning Pep is 100 %  Pure Natural Sweetener made form Real Birch Trees. It has been a convenient sugar substitute for many years now since it looks and taste like real sugar, and even had my own children fooled! I as well like that this product is produced in the United States unlike most Xylitols which are produced in Asian countries, plus it is made out of quality hardwood birch trees and is pesticide free. Above all, it is a great tasting and safe alternative for diabetics which is important when it comes to my family since there is a strong health history of diabetes that tends to follow us throughout the generations.

So exactly what can you do with Xylitol? Anything that can be done with regular sugar! Xylitol is used several ways:
  • replacing sugar in equal measurements
  • 40% less calories than sugar and 75% fewer carbohydrates
  • supports dental health - even improves it by fighting off plaque
  • there is no aftertaste - unlike most sugar substitutes
  • safe for diabetics / low value on the glycemic index
  • free of GMO, Corn, Wheat, Gluten, Soy & Dairy
  • Kosher certified
  • allergen free
  • helps support weightloss (which is my favorite)
  • and lastly, suitable for vegetarians
So one of things that is most important to me is that my family, starting 2015 cut out all of the sweets, that we eat healthier, and start working out more since pretty much were all couch potatoes. I like that this Xylitol product comes in 3 different sizes as well,  5 pound, 2.5 pound, and 1 pound bags. It gives my family a since of peace since, although not consuming real sugar were eating something that looks like, tastes like, and even feels like the real thing. I even took the liberty of checking it out prior to the kids getting up with my favorite cereal. I then even went a step further and changed out the sugar containers. The kids had no idea, and were consuming the same amount as they normally did. Now I am sure, if they would have seen me change out the containers, then there would have been an issue, but luckily they were still asleep. I as well love that I can keep my blood sugar better controlled with this product, there were no spikes and no crashes, so I am pretty happy about that. I can definitely say that I will look forward when I have my Labs drawn again, to see the overall effect on my A1c levels, hopefully they will be down from this recent doctor's visit in which my primary care physician was not very happy.
