  • Clinical Studies

Research shows that XIVIA® sustainable DuPont™ Danisco® Xylitol significantly improves oral health.

  • Dental benefits

Xivia is particularly suitable for this purpose due to its unique dental properties.

  • Regulatory

100% Xylitol chewing gum reduces the risk of plaque in children and plaque is a biomarker for dental caries.

  • Sustainability

XIVIA® study: The study concluded that XIVIA® production has a carbon footprint of just 10% of the biomass process.

XIVIA® Xylitol is a naturally occurring wood-based sweetener with all the taste and sweetness but only half the calories of sugar. Xylitol is widely approved for use in food around the world, and it also suitable for use in oral hygiene products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and toiletries.

XIVIA® Xylitol key benefits

  • Meets consumers’ demand for natural and sustainable products
  • Reduces the development of dental caries and plaque formation
  • Is safe for diabetics and individuals with hyperglycaemia
  • Leaves no aftertaste, enhances mint flavours, adds freshness to fruit flavours and effectively masks bitter flavours
  • Provides a natural, intense cooling sensation

Preventing tooth decay

Despite the improvements in dental health achieved through the use of fluoride, caries is still a widespread global problem. Decreasing sugar intake, and finding practical means to reduce its detrimental effects, remains a priority in controlling the incidence of tooth decay.

Xylitol is the first and only polyol to be recognised individually for its unique dental benefits and recommended by many dental associations worldwide, through the endorsement of sugar-free confectionery products in which Xylitol constitutes at least 50% of the total sweetener.

The formulation of confectionery sweetened with dentally safe sugar substitutes is a key weapon in the fight against caries. XIVIA® Xylitol is particularly suitable for this purpose due to its unique dental properties.

XIVIA® xylitol is proven to

  • Help reduce the development of cavities (dental caries)
  • Resist fermentation by oral bacteria
  • Reduce plaque formation
  • Increase salivary flow to remineralize damaged tooth enamel
  • Complement and reinforce the effect of fluoride in oral hygiene products

The most sustainable xylitol on the market

XIVIA® xylitol is made by following a unique production process, the DuPont Wood Based concept, which involves considerably lower energy (85% lower) and materials consumption than conventional processes.

Integrated with the inherently sustainable use of paper and pulp side stream feedstock - itself derived from sustainable forestry - this contributes to a 90% reduction in carbon footprint.

XIVIA® production’s impact on land, water and ozone layer is negligible and has a carbon footprint of just 10% of the biomass process.


XIVIA® xylitol is available under crystalline form with the look and taste of sugar. In addition to that we also offer a range of milled grades to suit any application, like for example chewing gum. We also offer solutions for simple tablet manufacturing pharmaceuticals, including parenteral nutrition and injectable treatments.
