What is Xylitol you ask?

  • Xylitol is a sugar alcohol – and no, that doesn’t mean there’s alcohol in it. It’s also known as a polyol. Sugar alcohols contain fewer calories and fewer carbohydrates than other sweeteners. Replacing sugar with xylitol can be helpful if you’re trying to lose weight or even to help prevent weight gain.

What does xylitol taste like?

  • Xylitol is a white crystalline granule that looks and tastes like sugar. The good news is that it doesn’t have the negative side effects associated with sugar. Xylitol is low-calorie, low-carb, diabetic safe and we think it’s guilt free!

Where does your xylitol come from?

  • Xyla brand xylitol is extracted from North American grown hardwood trees, and it’s delicious. We believe the practices employed in the harvesting and processing of our xylitol are ecologically sustainable. Xylitol is also naturally occurring in many fruits and vegetables. Did you know the human body makes about 15 grams of xylitol per day?

Xylitol Canada, Inc. emerged in 2004 as a reseller and distributor of Xylitol and Xylitol products. Based in Toronto, Ontario, the company continued to grow and develop additional brands under the names Sweet Diabetic Delight and Xylitol Canada. Realizing the market potential for high quality, readily available, and consistently priced Xylitol and Xylitol products, the Company broadened its strategic vision in 2009.

Realizing that the void in the Xylitol market was based on inadequate supply and lack of awareness, the company initiated a 2-tier business expansion plan that sought to solve both of these problems. With the vision of a full scale North American Xylitol production facility as a critical element of this strategy, the Company reached out to the Capital markets and formally went public in April of 2010. With the capital base to aggressively address the marketplace, the company immediately began executing its business plan.
