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!

I just received my first order yesterday and I LOVE the flavors that I have tried so far. I bought the Shark Tank special and have tried the lemon (very lemony), the Root Bear float (MMMM) and the Berry Mix. All have fantastic flavor. I've been using Xylitol as my sweetener for about a year now because I hate the artificial chemical sweteners so it's great to have a candy made with it. I do have to say that they are pretty pricey though. I will continue to buy but maybe just not as often because of the price.

After getting some dental work done, I noticed that one of the staff had a tin of Ice Chips next to them. I immediately remembered the family story and that I saw this product on Shark Tank. I began talking to the staff about seeing it on Shark Tank and how sweetening with xylitol is popular in Japan for gum and such.

To my amazement, they were unaware of this being on Shark Tank, so I educated them with a quick summary. I had to buy 2 tins, because I couldn't imagine that Ice Chips made it to my small town of around 7 thousand people. You guys made it and I had to give you guys some support.

every good review i agree with. i am eating 2 tins a week, and the tins are not planet friendly girls. i hafta tell you, you have the following, put them in little burlap sacks. every time i throw one away i feel guilt. i have repurposed a few and they do make good travel or beach throw away ashtrays. just a friendly but really serious suggestion.

I purchase these from two different local stores. My favorites are the Lemon, Coffee & Cream, Root Beer Float, and Pina Colada flavors. Being diabetic, these are great. I'm lucky in that I don't have a bad reaction to the Xylitol (when eating a lot of it), that some people have mentioned.. Malitol on the other hand.. nasty.. Can't wait to see what new flavors you all will come up with. I'd love to see a chocolate, coconut, and maybe a apple cinnamon flavor..

As a dental hygienist for over 25 years, I recommend many xylitol products for my patients. I learned about your Ice Chips at our dental convention, in Denver Colorado, in January. Very impressed with the variety of flavors and how these chips can help so many people with dry mouth and tooth decay issues. Thanks to your marketing, I now have a new way for patients to benefit from xylitol.

I get diarrhea pretty easy from foods and I just read some of these reviews about people complaining of this. I just wanted you to know I found your product a few months ago and have been buying a few each month....they last maybe a week total, if I'm lucky. I have not once had diarrhea from these. Guess I'm lucky and should knock on weed.
I also wanted you to know I just ordered a custom tray and can't wait for it to arrive and try some of the flavors I can't get around here. Thank you so much for the custom tray orders!
