Xylitol is a natural sugar alternative that found in a range of plants and fruits. It was first discovered in birch wood, hence the name, which derives from the Ancient Greek word for wood - xyl. Excessive consumption may have a laxative effect. If in doubt consult a health advisor. DO NOTfeed to animals as Xylitol is digested by dogs in a different way to humans and it can cause their blood sugar levels to drop dramatically and in some cases even cause death in extreme cases. It might be healthy for us, but it's not so good for them.
