We got some cheaper by buying on Amazon.com and all I read was positive.   It is usually made from birch tree bark and about 40% of the calories that are in cane sugar.  Tastes great but not cheap compared to cane sugar and should only be used sparingly when necessary to be able to bake something, etc. I think a lot of folks here will use honey or other natural sweetner?  Some of the other popular sugar substitutes like Stevia/Truvia are not safe for us because of corn being a part of the ingredients.  I'll link info. on the Xylitol;     http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/xylitol-health-benefits/
