*Caution- some people are sensitive to Xylitol in large amounts and it can cause digestive upset in them. If you don't know how you respond to this sweetener eat only a small piece to make sure you handle it. You can substitute your favorite cup for cup measured sugar-free sweetener (sucralose, erythitol, etc.) for the Xylitol
