Our Sugar Free 60% Dark Chocolate Drops have a smooth texture with a wonderful intense cocoa aroma and flavour. The chocolate is sweetened with a sugar substitute, Maltitol, which is very close in flavour and sweetness to chocolate sweetened with cane sugar.
Maltitol makes a great sweetener for this chocolate as it doesn’t have the unpleasant aftertaste the other alternative sweeteners often have. It has considerably less calories to cane sugar and with just 0.3 grams of sugar per 100g, it can be an option for those with sugar intolerances. Another claimed benefit to Maltitol, is it doesn’t promote tooth decay. It’s important to note that excessive consumption of products with maltitol may induce laxative effects.
