Xylitol is truly nature's sweet deliverance from sugar. It was discovered in 1891 by German chemist Emil Fischer and has been used widely in European and Scandinavian countries as a sweetener since the 1950s. Xylitol is traditionally derived from the cellulose of the tree birch (this is the form we use at our bakery). It can also be derived from corncobs.
Xylitol can be found in many fruits and vegetables, and in fact, is produced by the human body itself during normal metabolism (5-15 grams/day). It looks, tastes and bakes just like sugar, but with fewer calories and carbohydrates. Xylitol's amazing health benefits keep adding up. If you google the word on the internet you will truly be impressed.
Erythritol exists naturally in a wide variety of foods, It can be found in mushrooms, watermelons, pears and grapes as well as fermented foods such as cheese, wine,sake and soy sauce. In addition, erithrytol is present in the tissues and body fluids of both humans and animals.
For the food industry, Erythritol is manufactured by an entirely traditional biotechnological fermentation process from fungi. It is purified into a white crystalline powder with a clean taste about 70% the sweetness of sugar.
