Epic Xylitol Crystals are made of 100% xylitol -- a white, crystalline, natural substance that looks and tastes like sugar. Xylitol's sweetness is equal to sugar, but it contains 40% fewer calories. It is recommended for diabetics, since it does not require insulin to be metabolized. Epic Xylitol Crystals are ground to the same fine texture as regular white sugar.
Although Epic Crystals are made from corn, rather than the hardwood trees of some of our other brands, there is no molecular difference in the harvested end product. Manufactured in China according to high-quality pharmaceutical standards, Epic Crystals are affordably priced so you can stock up and save. We also offer these crystals in a 5-pound
bag and 80 single-serve packets
Use xylitol crystals almost anywhere you would use sugar. Add it to your cereal, make cinnamon toast, or use it in your coffee or tea. If you plan to bake with xylitol, start with the full amount of sugar listed in the recipe, and use half xylitol and half sugar. Make adjustments to satisfy your particular taste.
