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!

WOW!!! THIS STUFF LIGHTS UP YOUR MOUTH! I WAS INSPIRED TO ORDER ICE CHIPS AFTER SEEING THE EPISODE OF SHARK TANK. I TOOK A CHANCE AND WAS REWARDED FOR MY GAMBLE. I GOT THE VARIETY PACK WITH LEMON, ORANGE CREAM AND BERRY MIX. EACH FLAVOR WAS/IS A TASTE BUD EXPLOSION. SO FAR, MY FAVORITE IS LEMON. WHAT MAKES THESE CANDY CHIPS SO UNIQUE IS THAT THEY ARE NOT JUST SWEET. THERE IS A "TINGLY" QUALITY TO THE TASTE, AS WELL AS A TRUE FRUIT FLAVOR. I WILL DEFINITELY CONTINUE TO ORDER FROM ICE CHIPS... THANKS, GRANDMAS!

First saw a sample at the Yelm Prairie Hotel last weekend while visiting old high school friends. Then saw them at my dentist's office at Willamette Dental yesterday. Decided to purchase the sour cherry after hearing that is was 2 ladies from Yelm (had to support my hometown). Was pleasantly surprised! Have tried Xylitol in other products but none have tasted so sweet! Will definitely be a purchase I will make when I visit the dentist. Side note: I have a son that is Type 1 Diabetic and I am always looking for 'free foods' that he can have without having to take insulin. Will definitely be adding this to his list.

big grin I first got Ice Chips from my dentist's office. Tried several flavors, but my favorite is the Margarita flavor. Oh my goodness! So darn good. I have since moved to a different state, so now I will have to search for a new place to get these yummy candies.

frown I'm sorry Craig but you can order just the coffee and cream ones in a six pack, like literally.

These are the most delicious candy of all time. I'm looking forward to trying all the flavors. Maybe you could make mango or lychee or . . . ? All glories to your persistence. "The difficult we do right away; the impossible may take some time."

In fact a line of "sours" flavors would be awesome... What do you think?

Just tried the lemon and I'm in love! I'm your newest fan... But I do have a flavor recommendation that I know fans would appreciate: Sour/Green Apple? Granny Smith? Maybe you could call it "2 Grannies' Granny Smith?"

Thanks for creating a genius product!

I was trying to put the ingredient birchwood in quotations. Please put it back in the Clove flavor.

I have been buying Ice Chips Immunity Plus. It helped me get through a very tough and stressful winter. I had to visit family member in the hospital in the cold days and kept hoping to stay away from colds. Immunity Chips did it for me. But now its name is changed to Clove Candy and unfortunately the first ingredient "birchwood" is missing from Clover Plus. i do not believe it can be as potent without birchwood and I am very disappointed. Why would you change something that worked?
