What Is It Made Of?
Xylitol occurs naturally in some berries, fruits and birch.
How Is It Made?
Xylitol can be made from either corn cobs or the bark of hardwood trees such as Birch. At Steviva, we prefer the more environmentally friendly corn cob source. Since the cobs are typically discarded, using them to create xylitol mitigates waste. The need to harvest from the bark of hardwood trees is, in effect, killing the tree. And, with 15 or more years to regrow a Birch or hardwood tree it is hard to justify that practice when corn cobs are readily available as a true renewable resource.
Our xylitol uses only Non-GMO corn. After the corn cobs are ground to a pulp, put into a slurry of water and fermented, XeroSweet uses a natural ion-exchange interaction of hydrogen, hydrochloric acid, and steam. The waste water from this process is used for mushroom farming adjacent to the factory itself, and the pulp is used for fuel. Birch bark source xylitol uses sulfuric acid in place of hydrochloric acid. This creates a waste product which is not suitable to be reused in any other manner.
We are pleased to offer the most environmentally friendly xylitol available today.
