A sugar substitute, ideal for diabetes, produced using agricultural waste

PROBLEM

Diabetes and obesity are growing quickly because there are no healthy alternatives that taste as good as regular sugar.

SOLUTION

Xylitol is a natural sugar substitute that is the only one that tastes identical to sugar, is low in calories, ideal for diabetics and protects teeth against cavities. But instead of using traditional, expensive methods, Xilinat uses a biological process to transform agricultural waste that would otherwise be incinerated into Xylitol.
