Please note: We have the same review for 6 and 12-Pack ChocoFudges. Kate also talks about our SUGARLESSe™ natural sweetener here.
So… what can our ChocoFudge Mint Squares offer you, that nobody else can? How about being:
- Tasty: Delectable mint chocolate flavor and smooth texture
- Healthy: Only 100 calories in a 3/4 oz square
- Rich: Contain 60% pure cocoa liqueur and butter
- Diabetic friendly: Sugar free, with a Glycemic Index of 37
- Diet friendly too: Kosher, Non-GMO, and Gluten free
Also - we make them the natural way chocolate used to be made, before the age of super-refined sugars, extracted from genetically modified sugar beets.
AND THERE ARE EVEN MORE HEALTH BENEFITS FROM:
1. Epicatechin and other flavanols in cocoa liqueur
There are high quantities of these in cocoa; also in tea and grapes. They belong to the group of flavonoids. Studies show that epicatechin and the other flavonoids exert a protective role on osmotic fragility of cells, similar to that of insulin. This is also known as “insulin mimic action.”
- They reduce lipid peroxidation
- Inhibit platelet aggregation
- And are strong antioxidants
Dr. Norman Hollenberg of Harvard Medical School found that Kuna indians, who live on the San Blas Island Chain in Panama and drink high quantities of cocoa drinks, have a lower risk of stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes compared to the Indians living on the mainland. He even suggests to consider epicatechin as a vitamin.
2. Natural sweeteners in SUGARLESSe™
The main sweetener component in SUGARLESSe™does not trigger the sugar rush and subsequent crash caused by sugar. It is the subsequent rise and fall of insulin that instructs the body to store fat, resulting over time in obesity and diabetes.
Research into using this compound to prevent and treat neurological diseases like Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s has been promising. In Alzheimer’s disease, malformed proteins accumulate in the brain and clump together. This compound inhibits the clumping of malformed proteins.
There is a lot of anecdotal evidence too, from testimonies of people, who claim greater mental acuity and clarity of thought after using this sweetener in SUGARLESSe™.
Nobody eating table sugar, regular fudge and chocolate can claim that!
