I did a bit of research and found a product, online, that I have tried to emulate, minus one ingredient-Xylitol, I just couldn't do it, even with the research showing it was good for the mouth/teeth acid balance, to me it is still a messed with, man made product, albeit naturally derived, so I decided not to include it. I am so used to a non-sweet tooth powder now anyway so it didn't worry me in the slightest.
