Xylitol is generally well tolerated, but some people do get digestive side effects when they consume too much.
In one clinical study, subjects consumed an average of 1,5kg of Xylitol per month, with a maximum daily intake of over 400g without any negative effects.
The body seems to adjust very well to Xylitol if you ramp up your intake slowly and give your body time to adjust, then the chances are you will not experience any negative effects.
If you want to sweeten something, Xylitol is an excellent choice. Whereas the debate on most sweetners is about whether they will harm you or not, the studies show that Xylitol has actual health benefits.
It doesn't spike blood sugar or insulin, it starves the plaque producing bacteria in the mouth, and feeds the friendly microbes in the intestine.
