Birch sugar, also known as xylitol, comes exclusively from European production, mainly from Finland. The raw material basis for the production is hardwood from birch and beech, from sustainable forestry. The extraction of xylitol is very complex. Our xylitol is obtained from the wood sugar xylose in a technically complex process. Water is added to chopped wood. The wood water mass is then cleaned and filtered until all foreign matter has been completely separated from the xylitol. No tree is felled solely for xylitol production. The wood that cannot be used for paper production is particularly well suited for birch sugar. The special feature of xylitol is its cariostatic and anti-cariogenic effect, which has been proven in various clinical studies. Birch sugar has a little less sweetening power than standard household sugar and only has a minor effect on blood sugar levels, making it very suitable for diabetics.
Consumption is not recommended for children under 3 years of age, but adults should also only make the switch to this sugar slowly, because excessive consumption of xylitol can have a laxative effect.
