A natural substance derived from the Xylan of birch and other hardwood trees, berries, almond hulls and corn cobs, xylitol was discovered in 1891 by German chemist Emil Fischer, and has been used as a sweetening agent since the 1960's. It actually occurs naturally in many fruits and vegetables, and is actually produced by the human body in small amounts (5-15 gm. per day) during normal metabolism.
