I've gone to Heaven!!! http://www.lowcarbspecialties.com/choco_bars.html

Also anyone know if Chicory Root is ok for O's or Hunters?  I can't find where it's bad on my Swami... so neutral?

Look under live foods.

The root and the green are separate listings.

Rather than the chicory, I would be concerned with the Erythritol. That's (2R,3S)-butane-1,2,3,4-tetraol.

If consuming sugar alcohols was a problem for you, you would probably know. Generally it only takes me a few hours to note that I have eaten something containing a sugar alcohol.

I think the erithrytol might be corn-based. Email the company to verify. Sugar alcohols can also be very hard to digest- I've tried malitol sweetened chocolate in the past, and it had a very unpleasant laxative effect. I was better off eating dark chocolate with sugar than eating that stuff!

I now buy unsweetened baking chocolate. Sometimes I melt it, stir in molasses, and let it harden. Other times I eat it plain (which is definitely an acquired taste.)

I enjoy shavings from baking chocolate as a topping.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

well that's an interesting concept.  you mean baking choc rehardens after you melt it?  wow... i will need to use agave...  

i agree about the malitol.. but only if i ingest 2 or 3 large candy bars made with it.  1/2 of a bar doesn't do anything to me that I can feel or notice.

Yup, the chocolate re-hardens after melting. It needs to be quite warm to stay liquid. Once you mix in a liquid sweetener, it won't be quite as hard as it was before.
