On food labels, xylitol is classified broadly as a carbohydrate and more narrowly as a polyol. Because xylitol is only slowly absorbed and partially utilized, a reduced calorie claim is allowed: 2.4 calories per gram or 40% less than other carbohydrates.

Only 22 calories per serving.
This healthy and delicious green tea mix can be used to make ice tea, frappes’, smoothies or lattes’.
Matcha green tea powder is the healthiest of green teas because you use the entire finely milled green tea leaf where the stems and veins have been removed. Therefore, you receive trace amounts of amino acids and fiber in your beverage. This is not true when other types of green teas are infused. The finely milled Matcha green tea powder mixes well in any ice tea or culinary dish too. It takes about one pound of green tea leaves to make 1 ½ ozs. of Matcha green tea powder. It is a tedious process and make Matcha the healthiest and best bargain for the money!
Matcha green tea powder is mixed with Xylitol and adds many well researched health benefits of green tea like polyphenols (ECGC) and vitamins in addition to the fiber and amino acids to make this prize winning green ice tea mix.
