What's xylitol? Isn't it healthier to use a natural sweetener? Sucanat? Coconut sugar?

    Sweeteners like xylitol, a sugar alcohol, are processed to reduce caloric content- xylitol is typically less bothersome to the digestive tract than other sugar alcohols. Coconut sugar and sucanat are both natural sugars … you can use any type of sugar you’d like though…
