Xylitol powder brand comparison

I use xylitol powder as a dental rinse several times a day, and it's definitely improved my oral health. It can also be used as a sugar alternative when cooking. However, different xylitol brands have different additives, sources, and countries of origin (with China often being a poorer source than more strictly-regulated countries), so I've contacted each company to fill in details that aren't available on their packaging:
