Xylitol During Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

by on May 4, 2012

The information on xylitol use during pregnancy is inconclusive. Many women prefer to avoid all artificial sweeteners during their pregnancy to stay on the safe side.

Moderate amounts of this sweetener are probably safe. Women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding should consult their healthcare provider about adding xylitol sweeteners to their diet and to discuss the safest amount for their particular body weight and activity levels.
