Can you use XyloSweet to cook Yes xylitol is interchangeable with sugar for most cooking applications. Since yeast cannot metabolize it xylitol will not work when baking breads or anything that contains yeast.

Finally the amount of xylitol required to sweeten drinks such as lemonade can cause diarrhea in some people until they become accustomed to it.

I've been looking for a safer sugar substitute since Splenda didn't prove to be a safe as I first thought. Xylitol is birch sugar, has low glycemic effect, and supports dental health. It has been know to cause some GI problems when it's first used, but I didn't experience any. I do have a strong stomach, so I would suggest to transition slowly in small amounts. I'm an animal lover, so I have to mention that it can be toxic to dogs (Wright, 2014). So far, I'm loving it in my coffee & tea!
I have used this for years. The only I bake is brownies, and I always just use sugar, more because it is it never occurs to me to use anything else. Anyway, I use it to sweeten coffee, tea, smoothies, yogurt (although it tends to fight dissolving in yogurt...maybe because it's cold???) and I'm sure a lot of other things that I just can't think of at the moment.
This looks, tastes, feels just like real sugar. The only problem is that it doesn't agree with my stomach like real sugar. Do not use too much of this without doing research first!!!
Ever since my mom found out she is diabetic, we have stop using to much sugar. I started using Splenda and my mom can't tell the difference.
This is so good I usually use this instead of using regular sugar because it's less fattening and it's better than regular sugar
This stuff is a great substitute for sugar! It tastes just the same to me and it's good for you
I actually prefer real sugar as it is actually easier for your body to use than artificial sugars.
This is a great replacement. It taste great not no nasty taste in your mouth. A must try.
I love natural sugar it gives u a different feel of life it's way healthier for u to
As a dental hygienist there is nothing more than I like recommending to my patients than Xylitol. It is great as an alternative to any type of sugar or sweetener. It helps prevent cavities. But DO NOT give to your dog in any form as it is harmful.
