Xylitol is a natural sugar derived from xylose. As a naturally occurring pentose sugar alcohol, xylitol is found in many of the fruits and vegetables we eat every day. With a 1 to 1 sweetness ratio to sugar, xylitol makes an ideal sugar replacement in products that require just the right amount of sweet to taste. Xylitol is primarily derived from processing two sources - corn and hard woods such as birch.
ZAPP! Gum is made with 100% natural birch xylitol and is therefore naturally sugar free.
Clinical Studies have proven that ZAPP! Gum helps to prevent cavities! Over 80% of those tested in one study alone signiﬁcantly reduced their levels of harmful bacteria that cause cavities.
Known for its strong cavity ﬁghting ability, xylitol makes the perfect sweet ingredient for ZAPP! Gum. Best chewed following meals for maximum results, ZAPP will not only freshen breath but help to starve bacteria living in the mouth of their primary food source, glucose.
The more you chew throughout the day, the better your chances of ﬁghting expensive and painful cavities.
With a low glycemic index, xylitol (and ZAPP! Gum), makes the perfect sweet treat for those living with diabetes. Xylitol is absorbed into the blood stream slowly meaning no sudden spikes in blood sugar. Add to that the fact xylitol is natural (unlike most other sugar substitutes) and there is no reason to feel guilty enjoying ZAPP! whenever and wherever life takes you.
Xylitol and ZAPP! Gum are perfect for all ages.
Studies show that chewing 6 or more pieces of xylitol sweetened gum can dramatically reduce your chances of developing dental cavities by eliminating harmful bacteria in the mouth known as mutans streptococci.
With over 1 gram per piece, ZAPP! is an easy way to achieve your recommended 6 grams per day and improve your oral health.
