Our xylitol is made from plants and does not contain any animal products, making xylitol suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

What Is Xylitol:
Xylitol is a crystalline sugar alcohol powder commonly refined from birch, corn, berries, and/or plums. Xylitol is a refined sweetener, so it doesn’t contain any vitamins, minerals or protein. Xylitol has a very low glycemic index and does not affect blood sugar or insulin (Islam & Indrajit, 2012). Therefore, xylitol can be used not only as a sugar substitute but also as a supplement to antidiabetic food and other food products.
Xylitol has the same relative sweetness as sucrose, with about 40% fewer kilojoules
(Paxton, 2015, p. 72).
Like chocolate, xylitol is toxic to dogs. This should not be a significant issue, as you should not be feeding your dog foods that are sweetened with xylitol or anything else for that matter.
