Notes on Sugar Replacement
The sugar replacement used in this cake recipe is xylitol. It has fewer calories and does not raise blood sugar levels. It also has other health benefits. it may increase collagen production and reduce your risk of osteoporosis. It also feeds the friendly bacteria in your gut. A word of caution, xylitol is highly toxic to dogs so keep it sealed and away from pets. If you are new to this type of sugar substitute, go slow until your body adjusts. Too much can cause side effects like gas bloating and diarrhea.
