The ability of xylitol to inhibit the growth of bad bacteria has been understood for decades. Research going back to the 1970s has shown a 50% reduction in plaque levels among people eating food sweetened with xylitol. It is thought to work by interfering with the bacteria’s ability to produce acid as well as their ability to stick together in a biofilm, and by raising the PH of the mouth which makes it harder for cavity-causing bacteria to thrive.
