How Much Xylitol in Water for Sipping?

Posted Apr 11 2010 12:00am
Hello again, Ellie,

I have received my shipment of granulated Xylitol, mints and gum. In order to figure out how much of the granulated xylitol to use I need to know how many grams are in a teaspoon (or quarter or half tsp.). That information is not on the bag. Also, how much would you recommend adding to a 16oz water bottle to sip between meals?

The rinsing routine is going well; now I can add the xylitol and get the full benefits of the program.


Hi C,

One heaped teaspoon is about 5/6 grams.
One level teaspoon is about 4 grams.

I suggest adding about 2 grams to every 8 oz of water: or a level teaspoon to 16/18 oz of water.
This dilution makes it virtually impossible to taste - just kind of "softens" the water - from a taste point of view.

Hope this helps!
