ChocoRite was born from the idea that nutrition can be absolutely delicious! In fact, ChocoRite is really the only true low carb company throughout its entire line of candy and protein products. Some companies claim to be good for diabetics or low carbers but they use maltitol or other high glycemic impact sweeteners. Maltitol has a Glycemic Index as high as 53 and sugar is 100. The GI is an index that measures how much blood sugar rises after eating these sweeteners. Rising blood sugars are particularly bad for for diabetics and dieters. We only use Erythritol which has a GI of zero. Erythritol also only contains 0.2 calories per gram compared to sugar at 4 calories per gram which gives our products real calorie reduction. Please see the independent GI chart for a listing of sweeteners and their corresponding GI.
