TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- Xylitol Canada Inc. ("Xylitol Canada", or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: XYL) is pleased to announce that several national accounts have begun selling Xyla sweetener and Xyla sugar free products.

"Increasingly larger chain stores are becoming an active piece of our retail expansion. Xylitol is quickly becoming the go-to natural sugar alternative. Xylitol has been highlighted in several top selling diet books which have helped to accelerate awareness within the mainstream public. Not surprisingly, the past 18 months of publicity has created increased demand, and consequently larger retailers are now reacting to these consumer trends. More and more people are choosing to avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners and Xyla is that ideal alternative for that customer," stated Matt Willer, VP of sales.

The Company currently manufactures and distributes 75 natural, sugar free, and no sugar added products. These products are now available at an increased number of retail outlets including Natural, Grocery, and recently Club Stores.

"With our first quarter coming in at over $1,000,000 for the first time in company history, we are pleased to say that our growth has just begun. Consumers are making the switch, and our focus on North American made, high quality products has really set us apart from the pack," commented CEO Andrew Reid.

The Company, through its Xylitol USA division, will be exhibiting at the Portland UNFI (United Natural Foods Inc.) tabletop show June 4th-7th. This event marks the 3rd regional trade show the Company has attended in the past 3 months.

About Xylitol Canada Inc.

Xylitol Canada markets xylitol and xylitol based products and is focused on becoming a major low-cost manufacturer of xylitol and related products, serving the global market from operations in North America.

Xylitol Canada's business strategy is to leverage novel proprietary technology and processes to become North America's premier manufacturer of low cost, high quality xylitol from readily available environmentally-sustainable biomass. Xylitol is an all-natural sweetener which is marketed globally, including Canada and the United States, and is accepted by the American Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization and the American Dental Association. Xylitol contains 75% less carbohydrates and 40% fewer calories than sugar, has a myriad of oral health benefits, including the prevention of tooth decay, and is safe for diabetics. To date, wider spread use of xylitol has been limited due to the lack of a reliable, low cost, high quality supplier.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange Inc. nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
