100% natural sweetener with 40% fewer calories than sugar! Quick-dissolving crystals can be added to beverages or foods, or used in recipes.
What is Vitacost Xylitol?
Vitacost Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener that looks and tastes like sugar—without the calories and other negative effects! It can be mixed into beverages, sprinkled on foods or used for cooking and baking.
Unlike other sugar substitutes, xylitol is chemical free, naturally derived from the fibrous parts of plants, with no unpleasant aftertaste. It’s slowly absorbed and only partially utilized by the body, with 40 percent fewer calories than real sugar.
Xylitol is heat stable and can be used to replace sugar in baked goods—simply use the same amount specified for sugar in recipes.

Chocolate No-Pudge Fudge Muffins
Watching the scale is for the birds. You can mind your waistline while still indulging a little here and there. These low-calorie muffins make it possible by substituting butter for butternut squash. (What? They both have ‘butter’ in them.) You’ll also use whole grain flour and chocolate protein powder to keep the treat light and fit. But honestly, it’s the layer of chocolate chips on top that will have you watching these like a hawk. Under your careful eye, not a single crumb of fudge muffin will fall to the ground.
