It's a sweetener made out of birch, and it tastes and looks almost exactly like sugar, and none worse in any way.

Now here's the thing: it's not just tooth-friendly, it reduces caries.
It feels surreal: drinking sweet coffee, eating strawberries with a thick coating of something i couldn't tell apart from sugar if i didnt know better....and constantly having to remind myself that it isn't killing my teeth but taking care of them.

There's also xylitol based toothpaste for what it's worth...stuff is legit.

Xylitol is a sugar (technically a sugar alcohol), though the industrial variety is not made from birch sap but through various chemical processes. It's nice stuff, it has this kind of fresh/cooling taste, if one can get the pure stuff somewhere. Over here it's hard to find a toothpaste that doesn't have it! It's a bit upside-down that we keep our teeth in good condition by mechanically rubbing sugar on them.

hehe, maybe the sugar lobbyists are doing a better job here keeping it at bay.
it's like 10 times the price of regular sugar right now...if they could shrink it to 2 or 3 times, the sugar industry might be in trouble. dentists even moreso.
It's also metabolized slower, alright for diabetics in moderation i believe.
only downside known is a weak laxative effect, often goes away when you get used to the stuff.

Yeah everything in Europe has xylitol in it. And the gum has Mannitol (?). I love the diarrhea warnings on the gum packages.
