Isn't this the same drug that made non-fat foods taste fatty? I remember it had the same warning -- which I only read AFTER I ate a whole bag of "non-fat" potato chips -- and had the same physical reaction she did. Ugh!
Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme. - Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, “Forks Over Knives”

I raised the issue of what 'natural' meant with the Food Standards Authority in Australia. It has no defined meaning under legislation that applies to food labelling. Hence the situation (here) is that anyone can legally call anything 'natural' and that is fine. That's not quite the end of the story. If 'natural' is considered to be misleading there could be conceivably be a consumer affairs issue. But that's pretty weak :-( I'm ok with xylitol, I use a few different sweeteners in minor amounts and that's one that's in the mix. If folks are sensitive to it they should stay away.
