Birch sugar has made a name for itself in recent years as a sugar substitute, which is why you have probably heard of this product. Not only for those who cannot tolerate conventional sugar, an interesting food is on the advance: xylitol sugar substitute, or birch sugar...
...depending on which name appeals to you more - as an innovative, culinary and low-calorie treat, it is not only suitable as a means of baking cakes due to its properties. The following article will explain why the sugar substitute is increasingly being used in toothpaste and chewing gum. Of course it also discusses the characteristics of birch sugar and its advantages.
What is birch sugar?
The sugar substitute has many names, the best known of which is certainly xylitol and less than xylitol or even pentanpentol, although it doesn't really matter what you call it. The main thing is that you will find it if you are looking for xylitol, sugar substitute or birch sugar. This is a sugar alcohol that has exactly the same sweetening power as regular household sugar, but only half as many calories. It is also said that birch sugar can also inhibit the formation of caries. Although your body will get used to the sugar substitute, it is possible, especially if you have just discovered it for yourself or if you have accidentally overdosed it a bit, that xylitol has a laxative effect.
Normally birch sugar, unlike household sugar, is made from the wood of the birch tree, or more precisely from the bark, at least in most cases. However, here it is worth a second look for you, because this is not always the case. Due to the fact that xylitol can be obtained from many raw materials, including for example corn or cereal bran, you have to take a closer look at other suppliers.
The sugar substitute in comparison: The advantages of xylitol
Birch sugar has, in addition to its beneficial effect on your dental health, the comparatively low number of calories and its despite all strong sweetening power, numerous other advantages over household sugar and other sugar substitutes. You can easily use it to recook your favourite classic recipes as if everything were the same - they are guaranteed to taste just as good as before, precisely because birch sugar shares some of its properties with conventional sugar, but of course only the good ones. It is also the only sugar substitute that is indistinguishable from household sugar when it comes to sweet enjoyment, because even fruit sugar has a slight taste of its own. What more could you wish for as an alternative? In addition, your blood sugar level remains constant, at least with xylitol.
Sugar substitute that has a positive effect on your teeth and gums, is low in calories and tastes super delicious - it gets even better, because your body already knows birch sugar. It is produced during the decomposition of carbohydrates. However, if you have a dog, you have to be careful that it doesn't develop an appetite for your xylitol, because its four-legged friends are not equipped with the enzyme to break down birch sugar accordingly. So there is all the more left for you.
Xylitol: sugar substitute at Navoco
You're one of those people who likes to bake? Or do you love your morning coffee more than anything and still can't drink it without the sweet taste of sugar? Even if you don't have a sweet tooth, probably everyone refines the odd dish with a pinch of white gold, as sugar was called centuries ago.
For a long time you have been looking for a sugar substitute for a variety of reasons, which sweetens your experience in cooking and baking, but at the same time does not have such a negative effect? The answer: xylitol. Sugar substitute in the Navoco shop is characterized by its excellent quality, so you don't have to worry about it. It is also available in a practical tin, such as Bio Xylit birch sugar from the Biovita brand.

Birch sugar in everyday life
Sugar substitutes for your everyday use are already available from Navoco, but now you are probably wondering if this is what the xylitol sugar substitute was: Not at all! Many of us use something during the day that is already so firmly integrated into it that we don't even notice it is being used. Everybody has overslept at some point in the morning and then panicked when looking at the alarm clock and realized that you have to hurry up to get to work or school on time, although brushing your teeth is unfortunately rationalized away in this situation. Or maybe you have already sat a number of exams where you would have liked to concentrate better, especially exams that take several hours.
What helps in those cases, not always, but often? Chewing chewing gum, as most products refresh the breath and almost simultaneously sharpen the concentration. Unfortunately, normal chewing gum usually contains huge amounts of conventional sugar, which is very bad for your teeth. However, the Navoco shop of the Styrums company has the solution, so that you can continue to chew this habit without being disturbed: Pur Fresh Xylitol chewing gum, thanks to the use of birch sugar, among other things, promises a chewing experience that will support your oral hygiene in the long term, so that you can continue to shine with your smile.
More than just a baking agent: xylitol sugar substitute in cosmetics
In the meantime it has been found that birch sugar can do much more than shine in chewing gum or when cooking. Initial studies suggest that sugar substitutes and a substance like sodium fluoride complement each other perfectly when it comes to keeping your gums healthy and fighting tooth decay. Despite all this, you should not, of course, give up going to the dentist regularly. However, the dentist will probably be so enthusiastic when you tell him about Dental Med's Sante fluoride Vitamin B12 toothpaste, because fluoride not only remineralises your teeth, but also repairs enamel. No wonder birch sugar is now included in many other products where you wouldn't expect it at first glance.

If you can't decide what you'd like to start with, take all the time in the world to browse - we at Navoco wish you lots of fun!
