Xylitol is a sugar alcohol which has the ability to stimulate the receptors of sweet taste on the tongue. It is considered natural as it can be found in many fruits and vegetables in small amounts. Xylitol is a white, crystalline powder which has similar sweetness as regular sugar but with 40% less calories. It can also be made by using an industrial process where a plant fibre called xylan is transformed into xylitol. When consumed, xylitol reduces the levels of bacteria in saliva which leads to tooth decay and also fights against some of the bacteria causing ear infection. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Xylitol Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global xylitol market reached a value of US$ 921 Million in 2020.
