About NOW Foods

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods-a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed - NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

NOW Commitments

NOW's first priority is to maintain quality where it counts the most - in the products. NOW's exceptional cost-conscious team of employees then focuses their energies on driving costs down. Nurturing this competency of value drives NOW's ability to provide high quality products at the very best prices.
  • Natural is Better - NOW is convinced that natural products are better than their synthetic counterparts and produce better results in human health. Therefore, wherever possible, NOW strives to provide products that contain natural ingredients because they are better for their customers.

    NOW Foods Xylitol - 2.5 lbs.

    NOW Foods Xylitol is an outstanding alternative to conventional table sugar that's much lower in carbohydrates. NOW Foods Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that is derived from corn, is approximately the same sweetness as sugar, and has a much lower glycemic rating. As a result, NOW Foods Xylitol metabolizes slower in the body and helps support healthy blood/glucose levels already within the normal range. Extensive clinical studies continue to demonstrate that Xylitol is safe for both adults and children. Try some NOW Foods Xylitol today and see for yourself!

    What is Xylitol?
    Xylitol is a naturally occurring low-calorie sweetener found in fruits, vegetables and certain hardwoods. Our bodies can produce up to 15 grams of Xylitol from other foods we ingest daily. This sweetener is not a newcomer in the marketplace. Initially discovered by a German scientist in 1891, sugar shortages caused by World War II stimulated a group of innovative folks from Finland to rediscover this wonderful sugar substitute. They called it “koivusokeri” or “birch sugar” because they derived it from a fiber found in birch tree bark. By the 1960s, Xylitol was being used in Europe, the Soviet Union and Japan. Today it’s used in the USA as a sweetener that’s approved by the FDA and the ADA. Though Xylitol is commercially manufactured from the cellulose of wood, cane pulp, seed hulls or cornhusk; NOW Foods Xylitol is made from cornhusk.

    What’s the difference between Xylitol and regular table sugar?
    Xylitol is technically not a sugar but rather a sugar alcohol (polyol). Unlike other well-known sugars like sucrose, fructose, sorbitol and dextrose that have 6 carbon atoms, Xylitol contains only 5 carbon atoms. Unlike sugar Xylitol is slowly absorbed, does not cause a rapid blood sugar increase and does not require an immediate insulin response from the body to be metabolized. Its unique characteristic accounts for the fact that this reduced calorie sweetener boasts 40% less caloric impact at 2.4 calories per gram versus 4 calories for sugar. Xylitol provides approximately the same sweetness as sugar with a slight cool sensation.

    Are there any other health benefits that can attributed to Xylitol?
    Many Clinical and field tests have proven that the consumption of Xylitol combined with proper oral hygiene significantly reduces new dental caries (cavities). It accomplishes this anti-cavity function via a couple of mechanisms. Food containing refined sugar is an energy source for bacteria like Streptococcus mutans that quickly multiply and produce harmful acids. When the pH of the bacterial laden saliva drops too far below a safe neutral level of 7, the calcium and phosphate elements of your tooth enamel start to dissolve and form small pores. This is the beginning of cavity formation. Because it doesn’t ferment, Xylitol is not a food source for these acid-producing bacteria. The bacteria count is reduced, the healthy neutral pH of the saliva is preserved and cavity formation is stopped in its tracks. Xylitol increases the flow of our naturally alkaline saliva that’s used to rinse the teeth of acids as well as helping to remineralize the enamel.

      I make sweet tea a lot and I've begun sweetening it with xylitol. It doesn't have an after taste and it doesn't bother my stomach, as some other sweetners. Best of all, I switched from sugar to xylitol and no one in my family even noticed.

      Xylitol has a glycemic rating of 7; white sugar is 68. I sweeten my Now unflavored whey protein with it, and rinse my mouth before going to bed with a half teaspoon in a glass of water.

      This stuff is great. not only is it less calories than sugar and lower GI it actually also inhibits the bacteria that attack your teeth......just don't use to much...anything that usually has tol as the last three letters has a laxative effect if over consumed.

      I was paying 16.00 for a 16 oz bottle of already made flavored xylitol with a preservative in it. This is so much cheaper and I mix her supplements in it on a daily basis. I really am glad I switched to this product so much cheaper and goes a long way.

      I am a natural health practitioner. The 'NOW' brand is the only Xylitol I use. I have tried others but they tasted bitter. I add it to some recipes instead of sugar and will add a little Stevia if I need more sweetness. Since processed sugar is very inflammatory for the body and causes many problems, it is good to have an alternative. Other artificial sweeteners like Sweet'N'Low, and Splenda, are proven to cause brain tumors and/or are neurotoxic. Sweet'N'Low is a natural ant killer! So far I have not found any contraindications to using Xylitol except some intestinal irritation for sensitive individuals, and it should never be given to pets as they will have a hypoglycemic reaction.
