People still refer to use as "sugar". It's okay we don't mind. It's sort of a back-handed compliment that we're sweet enough to be confused with sugar. But the thing is...we're not sugar. We're xylitol.
Xylitol is only an 11 of the glycemic index, and since it contains 40% fewer calories than sugar, you'll be smiling each you step on the scale.
Enjoy and know you're a good steward of sweetness.
