Where does xylitol come from?

Postby MarshallDouglass » Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:27 pm

Where does xylitol come from? I know that xylitol is a natural sweetener, and that there's corn xylitol and birch xylitol... I even know that our own bodies produce natural xylitol... but where does xylitol come from exactly? Here's what I got from another site. Can you tell me if this is accurate?

"Xylitol is found widely in nature. In addition to a variety of fruits and vegetables, Xylitol is also commonly extracted from birch bark. It is important to remember, however, that Xylitol is a specific molecule. The Xylitol extracted from one source is exactly the same as Xylitol from any other source – just as the sugar (sucrose) extracted from beets is exactly the same as the sugar we get from sugar cane."
