+ Are there any known toxic effects of xylitol?

No. There are no known toxic effects of xylitol to humans. Humans can safely eat 50 to 100 grams per day, but it’s best to start raising the dose slowly to avoid a mild laxative effect.

Xylitol should not be given to pets, particularly dogs. If your pet consumes xylitol, consult a veterinarian.
