NOW Foods Real Food™ Xylitol -- 2.5 lbs
GMO free but...
I was disappointed with Now foods' xylitol.
First when I saw that it was labeled GMO free I was not phased by it since I know that the NOW brand is a GMO free company but when I received it I remembered xylitol can be harvested from birch trees which are not genetically modified so there is no need for this kind of labeling. Then when I tasted it I knew right away that the NOW brand xylitol was in fact harvested from corn (gmo free mind you) not the birch tree. Even being gmo free the xylitol from birch trees is far superior in taste and quality. It does not leave such an aftertaste and the texture is soft and moist versus hard and crystallized. I much prefer the "Miracle Sweet" brand which can be found on Amazon at a very good price. I just thought to purchase it here when I ordered other things. Now I know better.

This product works great as a sugar substitute. The only drawback is that it is made out of corn. Try to find xylitol that is made out of birch.

Excellent addition to daily diet
This xylitol brand is excellent. It works well in smoothies, ans a mouth rinse and as an overall supplement.sugar replacement in my daily food intake. It can't really be used in baking because it hinders the action of the yeast. I am int he dental education field and we regularly utilize gum and mints with xylitol to change the environment of the mouth so that the bad bacteria are rendered inoperative.

I use xylitol exclusively now that I have been totally off sugar for the last 6 months. It tastes great.

Great sugar substitute
Can not tell that this is a sugar substitute in my baking. It has no funny after taste.
