Application

1. It may be used in chewing gum, gum confection, Toffee, soft sweets, jellies, chocolates and buccal tablets, with the functions of throat-soothing, tooth-cleaning and tooth decay prevention. 
2. With non-fermentation, it may replace sucrose to be applied in drinks, milk, bread, preserved fruit, biscuits, yogurt, jams and rice puddings to strengthen their good taste and lasting sweetness. 
3. Xylitol is capable of moisturizing and improving rough skin exactly like glycerin, and makes people feel fresh and cool rather than tacky when applied. Therefore, it may be used in various skin care products and toothpastes. 
4. Xylitol can provide ideal sugar substitutes for diabetics. Juices, drinks, coffee, milk, ice cream, bread and candy may use xylitol in replace of sucrose, and xylitol may also take replace of sucrose when cooking sweet and source spare ribs, sweet and sour fish, etc. In a word, diabetics may use xylitol just like normal people use sucrose. However, daily total dosage should preferably not exceed 40g for adults, and such a quantity should be halved for children.
