The Pros and Cons of Maltitol
Yes, I know – maltitol is not perfect, but it’s a chemical free brand that I use (NOT ALL MALTITOL CHOCOLATES ARE!!!), it is safe for diabetics and SO MUCH safer than the dangerous artificial sweeteners and chemicals usually added to diabetic chocolate. So let’s look at the pros and cons:
- Safe for everyone to consume
- No sugar in the chocolates
- You’d never know there was no sugar present – delicious taste
- Adds sweetness without the calories or sugar
- Does not promote tooth decay the way sugar does
- Eating too many will result in possible diarrhoea, but you have to have quite a lot of maltitol for this to happen. (I find many of my clients use this DELICIOUS method as a mild laxative to ease stubborn constipation. Ever heard of the chocolate laxative called Brooklax? Well this could be used as the delicious version!)
- There are still carbs present but much less than regular chocolate
