Then you would be thinking incorrectly about Xylitol being made from grape extract.

Xylitol is a natural sweetener that can be extracted from any woody fibrous plant material. Commercially it is extracted from renewable resources such as corn cobs, and also from less environmentally sustainable sources such as hardwood. Xylitol also occurs naturally in our bodies in fact, an average size adult manufactures up to 15 grams of xylitol daily during normal metabolism. Pure xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar , and is used not only in sugar free chewing gum, but in a range of sweets, cakes, biscuits and other mass produced foods.

It is highly toxic for dogs.

I hope you are now clear on where xylitol come from.
