Epic Xylitol: Purer. Safer. Sweeter.
German chemists discovered the naturally occurring xylitol in the late 19th century in birch tree bark, and since then, it’s also been naturally found in fruits and vegetables.
Many of the plants in and around your home could provide you with all-natural xylitol.
That is, if you’ve got a couple bazillion dollars to build a plant that meets the safety and purity standards Epic Dental needs to feel comfortable providing it to their family and yours.
It’s the only way Epic Dental knows they can safely call Epic’s Xylitol a safe alternative to other sweeteners.
What is it?
Xylitol is a natural five carbon sweetener that can be extracted from plant materials. Epic Dental extracts theirs from corn because extraction from wood is a technical and wasteful process.
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 - be it corn or birch. None. Zip.
Worried about a corn allergy? Please - don’t be. Once Epic Dental is finished with the process, there are no proteins left over to provide any allergen which may cause a corn-based reaction.
Where does Epic Dental make it?
Epic Dental sourced their corn to a spectacular region of China where time’s stood still in the fields for generations. They marry that history and respect for the land with an ultra-progressive and eco-friendly processing plant to provide a perfect blend of tradition and technology.
Epic Dental's corn farmers remain strictly and proudly non-GMO (genetically modified organisms) and use no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. They hand plant their corn between rows of vegetables and trees, rotating crops every season - ensuring top soil quality.
From horse-drawn wagons, the corn cobs are delivered to Epic Dental's factory where they are ground and added to a natural acid solution that begins the process of isolating the xylan molecule from the corn cob.
State-Of-The-Art Science for Eco-Friendly Purity
To separate the xylan from the source material cleanly and clearly, ion-exchangers purify, separate, and decontaminate these xylan syrups.
Epic Dental then further filters this xylan syrup through a filtration and evaporation process to prepare the d-xylose (the natural precursor to xylitol) for de-colorization. This de-colorization happens through light’s natural bleaching. It’s then filtered, filtered, and filtered a third time to ensure purity.
Finally, Epic Dental has crystallization of xylitol - which can then, using a centrifuge, be meted out into any size granule required.
Quality Assurance. Guaranteed.
All Xylitol factories require in-house lab testing before distribution. Then, to ensure quality, Epic Dental's distributors who bring it into the United States have it tested independently. Finally, Epic Dental does additional testing on all their finished products to ensure their quality.
Specifically, Epic Dental tests for the presence of heavy-metals, arsenic, bacterial contaminants such as salmonella and e coli, as well as yeasts and mold. All products must be free and clear of these contaminants before Epic Dental puts their name on them.
Epic Dental requires a detailed Certificate of Analysis on every batch of xylitol they receive to be sure it meets their strict quality standards. Epic Dental is happy to show you examples of the certificates.
And not just their xylitol - but all Epic Dental ingredients have been tested to meet strict specifications. Epic audits all their manufacturing facilities on a regular basis to ensure impressive and consistent standards with no cross-contamination. Samples are removed at every stage and constantly tested throughout the manufacturing process.
Finally (phew) - products are held in quarantine - pending a full microbiological analysis, before Epic Dental ships them to you.
Yes, it’s exhaustive and rigorous, and Epic Dental is proud to feel like it’s worth every second and penny. Their kids are worth it. Your kids are worth it.
Are you ready to improve your family’s heath with Xylitol?
Epic Dental's most popular sellers are their cavity-free kits that simplifies shopping for cavity-free smiles. Epic Dental also offers a fluoride-free version of their toothpaste that’s also gluten and casein free. Epic Dental's gums and mints are gluten and casein free as well. You might consider, too, baking with xylitol as a sugar-free alternative for tasty sweets and treats.
Epic: Little Company. Big Differences.
There are big differences between Epic and other dental companies. Whopper big. Great state of Texas big. That’s no moon, it’s a space station big.
Frankly, no one puts more xylitol in their products – which means Epic Dental makes it easier and cheaper for you to get the recommended six grams per day to fight cavity-causing bacteria and win. Maybe that’s the reason they’re the only company willing to offer you a cavity-free guarantee. The rest of the companies will be all, like, “Oh bummer – you got cavities, huh?”
What’s more, and they’re admittedly a little biased, Epic Dental's stuff just tastes better. Thing is – other people tell Epic Dental their stuff tastes better, too. Epic Dental tells people to do their own taste tests, and almost unanimously, people come back to them with smiles on their faces asking for more. Epic Dental owes it all to the quality of their production.
Epic: Smaller Profit Margins. More Benefits. Happier Customers
Because they’ve grown this little company on the backs of those repeat customers, Epic Dental makes it easy for their regular customers to get free shipping for life. Loyalty rules, brothers and sisters.
What’s more, many insurance companies now consider Epic a benefit and provide discounts on their products. No other xylitol company has a relationship with insurance providers.
Go ahead: compare brands, or feel free to read what others have to say or better yet, do your own taste test today.
If their toothpaste worked, you wouldn’t hate the dentist.
Sorry if that’s harsh, but wouldn’t it be awesome to stop paying the dentist so much money? Think what you could do with that cash … Epic Dentist will hold … … …
The simple truth is: Epic delivers where the big oral care corporations fail. That’s because Epic puts more xylitol in all of their products. And they guarantee you’ll notice the difference all of that extra xylitol makes.
That’s because your mouth’s icky villains hate this Super-Hero of Oral-Awesomness. And when they say “hate,” they mean lay-awake-nights-scheming-for-most-painful-revenge-hate. Big hate. Nasty hate. These evil mouth monsters do NOT want to meet up with xylitol in a dark alley.
Why? A number of reasons: For starters, xylitol wreaks havoc on your teeth’s enemies. It disrupts tooth-eating acid attacks. Less acid means healthier teeth. It also destroys the nasty mouth mung that soils your smile. That’s why Epic Dental's long line of smiling customers say the first thing they notice is that their teeth feel slippery when they run their tongues across them.
Scientific research proves xylitol may reduce your risk of tooth decay.
What’s more, Epic’s gum and mints stimulate saliva - reducing dry mouth and serving as a catalyst for the body’s natural way to protect and buffer your teeth and sweet smile. That’s right – once your mouth is healthy, your body can actually remineralize damaged parts of your teeth by enabling new calcium and minerals to be deposited where acid attacks have previously caused these minerals to leach out.
Use the Epic System to lay waste to your teeth’s enemies.
Your Child’s New Best Friend
Have you ever met a child who likes going to the dentist? Epic Dental never has either. Why not help them reduce their stress and fear by giving them the confidence to know they’re more than likely just going in for a good tooth brushing and flossing?
As a parent of young children himself (him, the writer guy and Epic fan), he can tell you that by consistently using the Epic fluoride-free toothpaste, along with Epic’s gum and fresh fruit mints, he rests easier knowing the healthy mouths Epic xylitol gives his kids.
If you think you’re ready, why not jump in with Epic Dental's best-selling Slippery Smile Kit and put the guarantee to work for you.
Ha! The Slippery Smile Kit works … so your dentist doesn’t have to …
Diabetic? Try Epic.
Remember those sweets you miss and crave? With Epic, you may have your cake and eat it, too. Xylitol is sugar free.
All Epic Dental products are sweetened with 100% xylitol. Epic Dental's friends with diabetes have repeatedly thanked them for finding them a wonderful replacement to sugar, and it’s only an 11 on the glycemic index* (because its unique molecular structure requires less insulin to process.)
In fact, one of Epic Dental's customers remarked that they spanked sugar and other sweeteners because they not only have 40% fewer calories than sugar but actually prove to be a healthy alternative.
And because xylitol also fights cavities, you’ll be smiling all the way to the dentist as well as your doctor.
Sweet Alternatives for Diabetics
If you’re ready to learn to cook and bake with xylitol, know that it typically works as a 1:1 alternative to sugar, and it’s been proven to produce fewer GI side effects than other sugar alcohols.
Feel free to speak with a nutritionist or your doctor about Xylitol. Epic Dental will help play a small part in the healthy lifestyle of thousands of people just like you, and they’re confident your expert will agree. Doctors and dentists seem to like Epic Dental very much. It’s probably because they’re not your average company.
Why not start with any or all of these little gems:
- Epic Dental's 1-lb. bag or 5-lb. bag of all-natural sweetener to make your own treats
- The wonderful Cooking with Xylitol Cookbook to inspire you
- Sugar-Free Gum and Mints to freshen up after your indulgences

A Smaller, Sweeter, Better Approach to Smiles
Apple, Jeep, Whole Foods, Sam Adams … and Epic Dental??? Why did one customer recently compare Epic Dental to those companies? (Thanks, Deidre, by the way. Epic Dental doesn’t drink - so they don’t know about the Sam Adams thing, but they'll take your word for it.)
Heck, Epic Dental is just this tiny little company that wanted to make a product they’d allow their own families to use. Each day it seems like they’re asking themselves these questions, too.
Epic Dental can’t compete with the biggies’ Mass Produced Old School Ad Budgets or their super ginorumous expensively-shod sales staffs. (Though Dave at their shop just bought some cool new Chucks.)
But, through a little hard work and a lot of listening, Epic Dental has managed to become one of the world’s leading providers of innovative dental care products. It still feels funny to them to type that.
About that Pixie Dust ...
Your products get sweet-sweetened with xylitol, a natural sweetener clinically proven to reduce cavities by up to 80%. Epic Dental liked it so much and their friends and families liked it so much that they swooped up patents-pending on the delivery mechanisms for it. It’s also why they’re confident in offering cavity-free guarantee.
Epic Dental is a small, privately-held company. They were founded in 2003.
Umm … what else would you like to know? Epic Dental likes skiing and being out-of-doors in Utah. They like clowns. They like puppies.
They like that you’re here reading this, too. Thousands of others were happily here before you. It’s still a little funny to them to type that, too.
Oh, and Epic Dental loves answering questions about this stuff. Honestly, their friends and family have grown a little weary of their overzealous passion for Epic Dental, xylitol, and smiling.
