Another Sugar - Xylitol

function in curing diabetes. Moreover, too much of it would heighten the triglyceride
in blood and even lead to coronary arteries arteriosclerosis. So it is suggested that
diabetics not eat excessive xylitol. Although it is good for our teeth, eating too much
may cause side effects like diarrhea. We cannot neglect such disadvantages.

This sugar suits for two types of people. The first type is diabetics. Doctors argue
that most sugar-free or low-sugar products are meant to improve the quality of
diabetics' life. It cannot lower the sugar proportion in blood. Consumers should not
trust some irresponsible advertisements, holding the view that it is used to cure
diabetes. Patients should ask doctors and nutritionists for advice when using it as a
sweetener in diet. Patients should also be aware that sugar-free food like cakes and
moon cakes are made from flour. Eating too much of this kind of food definitely
would heighten the blood sugar.

The second type is those adults and children whose teeth are easy to decay.
Chewing gums can eliminate peculiar smell of the oral cavity. It can also exercise the
muscles of the jaw and relax those pressured people. Chewing a gum is becoming a
fashion welcomed by adults and children, especially by the youngsters. But people
have neglected that the sugar in chewing gums also raise the risk of decayed teeth.

As a sweetener in making gums, xylitol tops the chart. It not only has a good taste,
but also restrains the growth of the streptococci and thus prevents the decay of
teeth. Chewing gums' home, Finland, only exports
chewing gums. So the
chance that people in Finland suffer from decayed teeth is much lower. In America,
50% of adults have decayed teeth and 77% of children who are under the age of 5
suffer from it. But it is not the case with Finland.

Xylitol widely exists in straw, wood,
and food such as fruits, vegetables,
grain and mushrooms. It can be used
as a sweetener, a nutrient or a
medicine.

We should treat xylitol objectively. It
is a carbohydrate like dextrose.
During the latter period of
metabolism, it also requires the help
from insulin. Therefore, it can not
totally replace dextrose. And it does
not help in reducing the blood sugar
or urine sugar and it doesn't improve
other clinical symptoms. Clinic
experiments indicate that it does not
