Where Xylitol Comes From
German chemists discovered the naturally occurring sugar in the late 19th century in birch tree bark, and since then, it s also been naturally found in fruits and vegetables.
We choose corn. It s renewable, and it affords us greater opportunities.
Marketing myths abound that the plant source of xylitol impacts the end product (i.e., corn vs. birch), but any scientist worth his sweetener will tell you there s no molecular difference in the harvested end product with regards to its source. None. Zip.
Epic xylitol comes from some remarkable family corn farmers in China who help us go to exhausting lengths to bring you the best and purest pharmaceutical-grade xylitol on Earth. Using non-GMO, renewable corn crops, we can safely harvest and produce enough xylitol to power our small company (and its eco-friendly-smiling customers) and sleep soundly at night knowing we re stewards of the earth and future generations.
