About Xylitol Canada Inc.
Xylitol Canada markets xylitol and xylitol based products and is focused on becoming a major low-cost manufacturer of xylitol and related products, serving the global market from operations in North America.
Xylitol Canada's business strategy is to leverage novel proprietary technology and processes to become North America's premier manufacturer of low cost, high quality xylitol from readily available environmentally-sustainable biomass. Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener which is marketed globally, including Canada and the United States, and is accepted by the American Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization and the American Dental Association. Xylitol contains 75% less carbohydrates and 40% fewer calories than sugar, has a myriad of oral health benefits, including the prevention of tooth decay, and is safe for diabetics. To date, wider spread use of xylitol has been limited due to the lack of a reliable, low cost, high quality supplier.
Neither TSX Venture Exchange Inc. nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is define din the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
