Xylitol occurs as white crystals or as a crystalline powder. One gram dissolves in about 0.65 mL of water. It is sparingly soluble in ethanol.
Xylitol is a polyhydric alcohol that is a natural sugar substitute com- mercially made from xylan-containing plants (birch) hydrolyzed to xylose. it is as sweet as sucrose, dissolves quickly, and has a negative heat of solution which results in a cooling effect. it has 24 kcal/g. it is used in chewing gum, throat lozenges, and chocolate.

Synthesis of fatty acids and by the formation of volatile ester is not the plasticizer. Xylitol can replace glycerin, used in papermaking, daily necessities and defense industry. Because it is more hydroxy compounds, with sweet, non-toxic, low calorific value applicable to the food and sweetener for diabetics.
