Sweet Birch Crystals are a pleasant tasting sweetener that is low on the glycemic index and great for diabetics. Also known as Xylitol, Birch Crystals have been part of the human diet for thousands of years due to its presence in fruits such as pears, melons and grapes as well as other foods such as mushrooms wine cheese and soy sauce. For many years, Birch Crystals have been commercially produced and added to foods and beverages to provide sweetness as well as enhancing their taste and texture without spiking our blood sugar. It is a white crystalline powder that is odorless, with a clean sweet taste that is similar to sucrose.
