    What about Xylitol?

    And why do you feature recipes on your site that are loaded with sugar– easy no bake chocolate PB bars, really? A little tempting for those avoiding sugar, no?

      Hi thanks for you comments. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that cannot be digested by the body. While this makes it a zero-calorie sugar substitute, the effects on the body are unclear. Because it can’t be metabolized, it can build up in the digestive tract and cause harmful bacteria to ferment there, causing intestinal discomfort, bloating, etc. Research has shown stevia is a safe sugar substitute, but the research on xylitol is unclear.
      As far as the recipes, we offer a variety of options that people can choose from. If you are looking for only sugar free recipes, we have many recipes on Further Food that can help you stick with your sugar free diet.

      Hey Jocelyn, thanks for your question! During the detox we recommend that you limit refined flours. You can find lots of recipes within our meal plan and on the further food site. If you do want to eat noodles or tortillas, we would recommend whole grain varieties like whole wheat, brown rice or quinoa pasta. Hope that helps!

        Hi Samantha! Thank you for the quick response and suggestion. The meal plan is great, and I’ll definitely try some recipes in the future.
