XyliChew Gum is sweetened with xylitol, a plant-source sweetener which comes from birch trees. Xylitol is a safe and natural sweetener made from birch that promotes good oral health Scientific research proves that regular use of Xylitol reduces dental cavities by as much as 80%, and reduces earaches in children by as much as 40%. Xylitol decreases plaque formation and adhesion. Xylitol cuts off dental acid attacks, hardens tooth enamel and repairs small emerging cavities. Xylitol has a cooling effect in the mouth, leaves no aftertaste and is an ideal sweetener for a gum. Xylichew Gum contains original latex from the sapodilla tree as its gum base. It contains no petroleum products.

Xylitol, a natural component of our products, is a good-tasting sweetener that is reduced in calories, is dentally safe and that features a host of other health benefits. Xylitol has the same sweetness and bulk as sucrose, but with one-third fewer calories and no unpleasant aftertaste. It dissolves quickly and produces a cooling sensation in the mouth. In more than 35 countries, Xylitol is approved for use in foods, pharmaceuticals and oral health products. Discovered in 1891 by German chemist Emil Fischer, Xylitol occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables and is even produced by the human body during normal metabolism. It is a white, odorless crystalline powder with a pleasant, sweet taste. Produced commercially from plants such as birch and other hardwood trees and fibrous vegetation, Xylitol has been used as a sweetening agent in human food since the 60s. Our XyliChew® Gums contain Xylitol only from Finnish hardwoods, mainly birch. No corn or other cheap, poor quality sources are ever used in XyliChew®.
