If you want to sweeten something, xylitol is an excellent choice.
Whereas the debate on most sweeteners is about whether they will harm you or not, the studies show that xylitol has actual health benefits.
It doesn’t spike blood sugar or insulin, starves the plaque-producing bacteria in the mouth and feeds the friendly microbes in the intestine.
What more could you possibly ask for in a sweetener?
Beware, it is highly toxic to dogs, leading to hypoglycemia and/or liver failure.
