Why Xylitol?

Why EVERYONE wants to eat ICE CHIPS Candy made with Birchwood Xylitol EVERY DAY!
  • Strengthens teeth
  • Reduces new tooth decay
  • Reduces cavity-causing bacteria
  • Inhibits growth of dental plaque
  • Stimulates saliva flow
  • Does NOT impact insulin levels
  • Contains zero net effective carbs
  • Delicious and satisfying
  • The FDA has approved xylitol as a Natural Sweetener
  • Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables
  • Xylitol is found in small amounts in the human body
  • One teaspoon of xylitol contains 40% less calories than sugar
  • Savoring ICE CHIPS Candy 3 to 5 times a day delivers maximum benefits
  • Use ICE CHIPS Candy immediately after meals or snacks
  • Recent studies have found a link between consuming Xylitol during pregnancy and stronger teeth in infants

We get several questions asked over and over again:

  1. What is Xylitol?
  2. What are the advantages?
  3. Why is it so expensive?
  4. Why do you use it?

The easy answers are:

  1. Xylitol is a polyol, a sugar alcohol. It is all natural, safe for diabetics and has many health benefits.
  2. It is all natural, safe for diabetics and has many health benefits.
  3. Mostly, it is made from birch bark or corn. Ice Chips Candy uses only the birch bark Xylitol in order to avoid any chance of using Genetically Modified Corn (GMO). Additionally, the process and availability render this product much more expensive than sugar.
  4. Ice Chips Candy uses Birchwood Xylitol (made in the USA), in order to access the health benefits, particularly the dental and diabetic advantages.

We researched and understood the benefits of Xylitol early on at our parent company Healing Leaf LLC. We even sold a compressed pill-like candy for a while but wanted something with a higher concentration of Xylitol and a lower price point. While we could easily acquire bulk Xylitol, we were told it was impossible to make a hard candy.

If you want to get an impossible task accomplished, you might try going to someone with little knowledge of the subject but a passion for getting things done. Because we were health product experts but not Xylitol experts we ignored all the warnings. Lo and behold, within two days of trying, we created a tasty hard Xylitol candy in three different yummy flavors. Within a week we had seven of our current 18 flavors and we were selling Ice Chips to our friends.

We never underestimate the public's willingness to do the right thing for their bodies. We understand it is possible to get a package of breath mints for a couple dollars. But those mints will not benefit teeth, fight germs and bacteria, prevent ear infections while being safe (and recommended) for diabetics.

So, in a nutshell, THAT is why we use Xylitol!

Received my first 6 pk tin pack yesterday. I have found a candy that doesn't disturb my stomach. So happy!!! I love the far Licorice is my favorite. I learned of this product at the PLMA Show last week in of the vendors was giving it out as a promo gift. Very nice! This introduced me to my new favorite candy/mint.

Customer service is top notch!!! These are better and healthier than Dr. John’s candies, and definitely better than anything available on Amazon. So glad I found some ginger candies my pregnant wife and I are comfortable with:)

I have dry mouth from all the medication I take for MS. I greatly appreciate your product! I saw your appearance on Shar Tank and ordered right away! Delicious and perfect for moistening my mouth. I would love a peach flavor, would you consider this? Thank you!

I started working with a Dietician/amazing lady and have lost 53 lbs. in 2 months (after years of failed attempts)--I have a terrible sweet tooth (that's what got me into trouble in the first place), and I've noticed bad breath and it really bothers me--a good friend told me about your ice chips and had me try them and now I'm hooked! What an incredible product you've made for people like me!! I can't wait to have them for my own when my order comes in!

I've been enjoying Ice Chips for almost a year now, having been introduced by my dental office. My husband and I both love the flavors, and we have explored most of them at this point (Root Beer is so great for when I have serious sweet tooth, and all three -mints have our votes too). More importantly, my dentist has noticed marked improvement in the remineralization of my teeth. We're not 100% sure if it is due to the Ice Chips, but surely they factor in with my home care. I have notoriously bad genes when it comes to teeth, so these have been a boon beyond imagining. Thank you so much for your wonderful product!

Walked around the store at a local military base and saw "Ice Chips" hanging in the candy section. Never heard of it and looked at the ingredients. Saw it's Xylitol based and not sugar based. Being on a sugar-free diet, I thought to give them a try. I got mango flavor and pineapple/coconut flavor. They're both really good. I'm looking to try other flavors. Thanks for providing this product.

I just wanted to say Thank you for making such a wonderful product. I just saw your episode on shark tank and immediately looked for this product online to purchase. I am 33 yrs old and due to a medication that caused dry mouth and not having seen a dentist in 10 yrs I have lost many of my teeth due to the dry mouth that caused me severe tooth decay. I am in need of 13 dental implants at this point and am trying to save the remaining teeth I currently have left. I have heard amazing things about Xylitol and the benefits it has to prevent tooth decay and I will without a doubt be purchasing this product for myself, and my 3 children. Thank you this is without a doubt a great product and I look forward to trying it.
