Xylitol - A better sugar substitute?

==================================== Xylitol is a five-carbon naturally occurring sugar alcohol found in most plant material, including many fruits and vegetables.It is as sweet as sugar but fewer calories- 1 gram of sugar have 4 calories whereas xylitol has 2.5 calories approx per gram of it. Yes it's a better choice than sugar as you can save some calories with the use of xylitol but at the same time, we know that calorie-free substitute like stevia and sugarfree are available in the market. Probably they are a better choice for a sugar substitute.
