Xylitol is a low kilojoule sugar substitute with 40% less kilojoules than sugar, negligible carbohydrate content and a low GI of 7. It is a good option for those with diabetes, as xylitol is metabolised slowly by the body and doesn't cause the 'sugar spike' that may be experienced with other sugar products, leading to a subsequent drop in blood sugar and a craving for more sweetness.
As a sugar substitute, xylitol is great when cooking baked treats and can be measured 1:1, as 1/2 cup sugar equals 1/2 cup xylitol, (although some recipes may vary slightly so adjust accordingly). There are also subtle differences between xylitol and sugar when cooking or baking, xylitol absorbs moisture heavily and won’t help you like sugar does when trying to get something to raise using yeast
