Dear Dr. Ellie,
Is there any sugar or sugar substitute in Zellies? How are they sweetened? I cannot have any sugar or artificial sweetener.
Xylitol is neither a sugar nor an artificial sweetener.
Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute derived from plants, fruits and the fibers of woody plants most notably birch trees.
Xylitol is safe for diabetics and is most often suggested for health by holistic doctors as a sugar replacement,to help osteoporosis, acid reflux and for dental health.
Zellies mints are made with compressed xylitol plus added natural flavors. Zellies gum is made with pure 100 percent xylitol coated on the outside of each gum piece. This is what makes Zellies gum so superior to other gum. Zellies contains xylitol and no artificial ingredients or artificial sweeteners.
I look forward to talking with you soon,
