                                         Information @ a Glance
  • Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener found in many fruits such as raspberries, strawberries and kiwis. Xylitol is a sugar substitute referred to as a polyol.

  •  Xylitol is a five-carbon sugar alcohol that is used as a sugar substitute. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sweetener found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, including various berries, corn husks, oats, and mushrooms. Xylitol is roughly as sweet as sucrose but with only two-thirds the food energy.Xylitol has demonstrated anti-decay capabilities due to competitive inhibition, which means that bacteria in your mouth canít feed off xylitol.


  • Xylitol can be found in some fruits and vegetables, but extraction of xylitol from these sources is uneconomical, due to the low concentrations present. The methods of xylitol production are chemical or microbial reduction of D-xylose or hydrolysates of xylan-rich hemicellulosic materials. Commercial production of xylitol is currently from birch wood sulfite pulping liquor and other xylan-rich substrates. The production involves extraction and purification of xylose from the pulping liquor.
  • Production of xylitol from xylose in batch fermentations of Candida  is discussed in the presence of glucose as the cosubstrate. Various initial ratios of glucose and xylose concentrations are assessed for their impact on yield and rate of production of xylitol. Supplementation with glucose at the beginning of the fermentation increased the specific growth rate, biomass yield and volumetric productivity of xylitol compared with fermentation that used xylose as the sole carbon source.


  • Xylitol is a tooth friendly sugar. In addition to not encouraging tooth decay, xylitol may actively aid in repairing minor cavities caused by dental caries.
  • Xylitol also appears to have potential as a treatment for osteoporosis. A  dietary xylitol prevents weakening of bones in laboratory rats, and actually improves bone density.
  • Xylitol chewing gum can help prevent ear infections
  • Xylitol is not only safe for pregnant and nursing women, but studies show that regular use significantly reduces the probability of transmitting the Mutans Streptococci bacteria from mother to child during the first two years of life by as much as 80%.


  • Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar substitute that has been shown to reduce the level of mutans streptococci in plaque and saliva and to reduce tooth decay. Xylitol cannot be fermented by most oral microorganisms and it was found to be more effective in caries reduction than sorbitol and mannitol
