Our luxurious sugar free Chocolate powder is naturally sweetened with stevia and xylitol. It is a little taste of sweet, creamy bliss. Lovely as a hot cocoa, yet bold enough to add to your coffee, you won't believe it has zero grams of sugar. Go ahead. Pinch yourself. For those of you new to Stevia and Xylitol, here is the lowdown: Stevia is made from a plant that is a member of the daisy family. It is an all-natural sweetener with zero calories, zero carbs and a zero glycemic index value (it doesn't impact blood sugar levels when processed through your body). The stevia in our product is a purified form, known as Stevia SG95. Xylitol is a natural, plant derived substance that looks and tastes very similar to sugar but has less than 1/2 of the calories of sugar. It has a low glycemic index as it absorbs slowly into the blood stream and does not cause a spike like sugar . It is used to sweeten all kinds of chewing gum as it is known to reduce the incidence of tooth decay. Why isn't Xylitol the natural sugar substitute of choice? It's far more expensive than sugar or artificial sweeteners, and knowledge of the product is limited in the U.S. Both stevia and xylitol have been popular in Japan and Europe for decades. Since they are naturally derived, there is no "sugar free" aftertaste and they are excellent natural alternatives.
