Low Carb, Low Sugar Chocolate From Freeist

Got a sweet tooth? When you're trying to cut back on your sugar intake it can be hard to find a sweet treat that won't destroy your good work. And face it, dark chocolate is lovely, but sometimes you just need a little more.... more.

I came across these tasty chocolate bars from Free'ist in Tesco recently and I'm converted! Their whole range (chocolate, biscuits, jams and wafers) is free from added sugar, so is suitable for diabetics.

Their chocolate is sweetened with the polyalcohol malitol which -compared to table sugar- is half as caloric, does not promote tooth decay and has a lesser effect on blood glucose. However, eating too much of it can have a laxative effect- you have been warned!

There's a lovely white chocolate with strawberry pieces (pictured above), a tasty milk chocolate with hazelnut, a plain milk chocolate (which is pretty darn close to the real thing!), and a slightly sweet dark chocolate.

You can find the nutritional info and stockist listings on their site and follow them on facebook or twitter.
