I bought some ketchup with xylitol in it as the 2nd ingredient.  I think it is  a sweetener?   Nature's
Hollow made the ketchup.   Does anyone know if xylitol is ben., neu., or neg. for blood types?   How about for O's??    The ketchup bottle says ideal for diabetics and is a 5-carbon sugar alcohol
    I know if it is not listed then take it as a neutral.  It tastes OK.      


                                             thanks

Some xylitol is fermented from corn, while some is fermented from acceptable sources. Unfortunately, the corn-derived version is the most popular, probably because its' cheaper.

I personally won't consume it because I need to be extra careful with my diet. You need to decide for yourself how compliant you want/need to be. Also, what kind of vinegar is in the ketchup? Any other questionable ingredients?

I do occasionally buy xylitol gum for the kids, since only a tiny amount ends up being consumed and most of the xylitol stays in the mouth, where it can be helpful for oral health (it feeds good bacteria and starves bad bacteria in the mouth.) If I were to purchase xylitol, I would use it to make mouthwash, not to bake with.

I just called the company Nature's Hollow and asked about the xylitol.  He said it comes from the birch tree, and not from corn!
