Healthy Baking Lessons – Ep. 8 – Xylitol and Xylitol Intoxication in Dogs

Hi,

How are you? How is your week?

If you remember, I started a series of weekly videos on the topic of healthy baking. I sincerely hope that you follow them and that they are useful to you.

Through these materials I want to create more education on this beautiful subject, of healthy baking.

I want you to know more about the following:

1. What are the ingredients used in healthy baking?
2. How are they used?
3. What are the news in the field?
4. Q&A with the answers to your questions.
In episode 8, I'd like to help you learn more about xylitol, a substitute for refined sugar. You can use it in your cakes and desserts. It is very easy to
use.

You've probably heard by now that refined sugar is not good for you because it causes health problems. But then what can you use instead, and especially if 
the replacements are safe or not? This was the first question I wanted to solve when I wanted to give up sugar. I stopped using refined sugar a while ago. 

In the cakes I make I use stevia, coconut sugar, xylitol, maple syrup and other substitutes. For this reason, I wanted to find out as much information about 
them as possible. I did not want to replace refined sugar, which has certain health consequences with something that is not beneficial. I tried to find out 
all the necessary information. 

Of course, no sugar substitute is 100% healthy if consumed in excess. Any food, no matter how healthy or beneficial it is, if consumed too much will create 
certain problems. For doughs and creams sometimes, most of the time I used coconut sugar or syrups. I used xylitol especially for some creams that I dodn't 
want to change the color, or when I replace the eggs with aquafaba.

In short:

1. Xylitol is a substitute for refined sugar. 

2. It can be used in both creams and doughs, or other types of dessert. 

3. Xylitol has a lower glycemic index than sugar, so it is suitable for diabetics. 

4. It must be consumed in a maximum dose of 40 gr. per day. 

5. Excessive use of xylitol may cause gastrointestinal upset. 

6. Xylitol is very toxic to dogs and causes intoxication. Its consequences can be very serious and require an emergency visit to the veterinarian. 


But these and not only, you can also find them in the following VIDEO:

What do you think about xylitol? Have you tried using it yet? How was it?

Send me an email and tell me what you think about it.


I am waiting for your answer and I promise that I will respond to all emails with the greatest pleasure. I wish you a wonderful day.

Dearly,
Raluca
