Zellie’s are made with ingredients selected for purity and good health and dental benefits. We have chosen to leave out ingredients that we feel could impede the improvement of oral health. Zellie’s Products have measured (not estimated) amounts of xylitol in them. Many other xylitol products “round up” the amounts of xylitol in their gum and mints. Nutrition labels allow this – so 0.7 grams may look like 1.0 gram as you read the label. On the other hand, our Polar Bears have 1.3 grams of xylitol in each bear, but the label has been “rounded down” to show only 1.0 gram. We added the extra xylitol purposefully so that children with cavities can eat 5 bears per day and enjoy the recommended amount of 6.5 grams of xylitol daily for improved oral health.
