- 100% Pure Xylitol: XyloSweet is a 100% pure xylitol sweetener derived from the fibrous parts of plants, similar in taste to regular organic sugar. We use no filler, flow agents or other additives. Granulated xylitol is a natural sugar that tastes just like sugar and a great choice when looking for sweetners and sugar alternatives.
- Delicious Low Calorie Sweetener: Xylitol may assist in achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight when used with health food. Xylitol sugar is 40% lower in calories than regular sugars, but contains the same sweetness. It can be a great choice for using in diabetic foods and snacks, keto friendly foods or used in blood sugar support supplements.
- Convenient Sugar Replacement: XyloSweet can be be used as a substitute for baking sugar and most other common sweeteners and sugar alternatives without compromising taste or texture. XyloSweet is diabetic safe with a glycemic index of 7, as opposed to 65 for most table sugars.
- Great Taste: Unlike other sugar substitutes, xylitol has no after-taste and can be used in most recipes that call for sugar in equal portions without making any additional adjustments.

I love that I can sweeten my protein shakes, cereal, coffee, tea, peanut butter, sugar-free yogurt, baked goods and so much more w/o the harmful elements of sugar. I HIGHLY recommend this product and everyone I've introduced it to, including diabetics, love it as well. Just FYI, I'm not in any way related to the seller or anyone else with associate with this company or brand. Sometimes over-enthusiastic reviewers seem suspect to me and I don't want to sound like that. I just know that for me, it's one of my essential pantry items.
1. Spikes your blood sugar level: The product is precisely made to be low (but not 'no') GI. Maybe these people are adding it to their McDonald's chocolate milkshake and blaming the xylitol. *emoji shrug*
2. Poisonous for Dogs: Not sure why you'd be surprised when this info is easily found by a simple search, and a simple search is what you should do when buying any new food product/supplement you're not familiar with. Also, why would you even give this to your dog?!
3. It's not sweet: Maybe not as sweet as sacharrine, but it is tested independently and shown to be 100% sweetness level of sugar, whereas erythritol is 70% sweetness of sugar.
4. Not 5lbs: This would be the one legitimate complaint if indeed they are short-weighting this. Would like to see the company address this. I work in brand management and innovation and we always err on overfilling products just to be safe.
In order of preferences, here are the other sugars I have tried, and my opinion of them. I've not cooked with all of them. I evaluated them by tasting just a dab on my fingertip, so if it was supposed to be mixed with something to cut/enhance the taste, well, that didn't happen.
1. XYLOSWEET XYLITOL NATURAL SWEETENER - see above. Also, this comes in a 2# & 5# bags, which I love. Doesn't seem to come as confectioner - sad face.
2. LAKANTO MONKFRUIT 1:1 SUGAR SUBSTITUTE - A second close to Xylo. Slight cooling on the tongue and a *barely barely barely* discernible after taste. This will be my go to if I can't immediately put my hands on the Xylo. This also seems to have as a confectioner, and in 3# bags.
3. SWERVE SWEETENERS (both confectioners & granulated) - fairly decent, but this is about where the sweeteners started slipping below that "tastes real" line. Cooled on the tongue, tasted sweet, with no aftertaste, but ... also tasted like sugar substitute, if that makes any sense. Like, if I picked up a cookie with this in it, I'd know I was eating a fake cookie. Not so with 1 & 2. PRO: confection form.
4. PYURE ORGANIC ALL-PURPOSE STEVIA SWEETENER - Bought early last year. The bag is only missing that little tiny bit I put on the tip of my finger. Yeah, so, that. Bitter - like BITING bitter.
5. PURE MONK (Julian) - Just got it the day-before yesterday. Thinking about dumping it out, rinsing the jar, and using it to hold my makeup sponges. Oh yeah - this was the most expensive of them all. So...
I tried the made-in-USA birch version and found very little difference and about 40% more expensive. So I stayed with this old reliable.
U N T I L
this month when I found out that the xylitol used in XyloSweet is sourced from China.
Food products from CHINA ?? Are you serious ? I'm an old China hand who has eaten stuff in places that Bourdain would shy from. But, it wasn't processed factory stuff. There are no standards or enforcement in China, ESPECIALLY for exports. There are no QC inspections or tests by the US importers of xylitol. The processed food industry in China has poisoned its own babies. Do you think they give a hoot about US consumers ?
I tossed the remaining couple of pounds of this and ordered the US-made birch stuff. More expensive, but there's no option if you want to avoid high risk of dietary danger.
Think about it.
