Xylitol Simple Syrup
Yes. You can make Xylitol simple syrup – and it is so easy!
Before you begin, choose your ingredients carefully.
Most Xylitol is derived from corn, therefore it is more than likely genetically modified. The USDA reports that 80-90% of all corn grown in the United States is genetically modified. Popcorn, white corn, and blue corn are exceptions. As a general rule stay away from any corn or corn derived products that are not grown organic.
Safely Sourced Xylitol
The best and safest form of Xylitol is sourced from wood. I prefer Xyla by Emerald Forest, which has its source from American Birch wood.
The water you use is important also. Make sure it is safe and has a ph on the alkaline side. I am currently using an Alkalizing RO System to make my Xylitol Simple Syrup. The system first purifies the water through Reverse Osmosis, then re-alkalyzes and re-mineralizes it. Surprisingly the system is very affordable. Learn more. I’ve also included some water filter recommendations at the bottom of this post.
Recipe for Xylitol Simple Syrup:

- Heat equal amounts of Xylitol and water, stirring until all the grains have dissolved (do not boil)

- Use as recipe calls – equal measure
