Slide 2: The eco-friendly method of extracting xylitol is an eight step process, that starts with the harvesting of corn cobs, and ends with pure xylitol crystals. To make Xylitol you have to first make D-Xylose then refine it into Xylitol. Since both processes are similar, we have take the liberty to combine these two processes into a condensed tour 3 min. tour. If you would like a more detailed explanation on xylitol production, please feel free to contact us directly. Slide 3: Xylitol is a five carbon sugar that is found in most wood products. Extraction of Xylan Hemicellulose from wood is a technical and expensive process. We have chosen to use corn cob as the raw material for this extraction. Slide 4: Our first priority was to find a quality manufacturing plant that was located in an area where the corn source was non-GMO and the farmers did not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The farms are managed by families who have been using the same techniques for generations. By hand planting their corn between rows of vegetables and trees, and rotating all crops every season, they are able to maintain a soil quality that provides an environment resistant to insects. Slide 5: After harvest, the farmers remove the corn kernels, and lay the cob out in the sun to dry. Once dried, the cobs are put into large burlap sacks, loaded onto the family’s horse drawn wagon, and sent off to the factory, thus creating a substantial cottage industry for local farmers. Slide 6: The corn cob is ground, then added to a hydrochloric solution (natural acid). This is the first step in isolating the xylan molecule from the corn cob. #2 Solution Slide 7: Ion Exchange is a process of purification, separation, and decontamination of ion-containing solutions with use of solid ion exchangers. This is done after the hydrogenation of the xylan solution. #3 Ion Exchange Slide 8: The solution next goes through a filtration, and a evaporation process, in order to prepare the d-xylose (a precursor to xylitol) for de-colorization using a natural light source. #4 Evaporation Slide 9: Crystallization is performed after the xylan solution has gone through three separate filtration, and micro filtration process. #5 Crystallization Slide 10: Centrifugation is a process used to create a particular granule size according to the specific needs of the customer. #6 Centrifugation Slide 11: Drying is necessary to reduce the moister content to a level that insures the stability, and longevity of the xylitol. #7 Drying Slide 12: In the final step the xylitol is screened before packaging. #8 Packaging Slide 13: Sweeter Healthier Smarter
