Xylitol has been featured on Cross Link Radio in the past. As an aide to oral health xylitol can't be beat. No fluoride studies can compare to the oral health benefits of xylitol. But that's not the end of they xylitol story. It's also not the end of medicinal benefits of xyltiol. And then there's erythritol a four carbon sugar also called a polyol.
