Rhubee’s xylitol is produced from the bark of wild birch trees, which are organically grown in wild plantations in Tanzania. No trees were cut down or destroyed during production.
Our xylitol is produced through a unique fermentation technology (bio-hydrogenation) at low temperatures, without the use of chemicals, and is therefore considered a natural raw polyol. Xylitol is slowly absorbed and only partially utilised in the body. In addition, the body does not require insulin to metabolise xylitol.
For this reason, polyols like xylitol produce a lower glycemic response than sucrose or glucose. Sweeter than sucrose and with less calories, Rhubee’s birch bark xylitol is a low GI sugar substitute that can be used in all types of cooking and baking. Banting friendly.
