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!

After watching it on shark tank I have been obsessed with finding them! Finally found a store and bought some! They are very good! Different but very good and have a cooling feel.

My partner and I just discovered ice chips at a local health food store in Tower District in the town we live. The second I saw the tin can I said to him, "Oh my gosh these are the candies on Shark Tank!" As Gaudiya Vaishnavas both my partner and I are vegan and the one thing we both crave are sweets. This candy not only fulfills and satisfies our sweet tooth but puts our minds at ease because of the simple ingredients and great taste. Great product!

I just picked up the cinnamon flavored ice chips at our local health food store. I've been wanting to try these ever since I saw the episode on shark tank, but C. was right, the shapes of them are great. I love picking out my next chip so I hope you don't ever change the shape to a standard mold. There's something fun about picking out your next odd chip size.

Love your ice chips! I think the person who suggested bags to refill the tins has a brilliant idea there!
Thank you!!

I love ice chips on the whole but found the Ginger flavor very disappointing. Sort of has an earthy, dirt taste to me. All the others are fantastic though. What a great product.

I have not yet tried Ice Chips because I have 2 dogs who seem to get into everything and XYLITOL IS DEADLY TO PETS! I have not seen anything on your website cautioning people to NEVER GIVE THESE TO PETS! Please update your FAQ and give strong, red-box warnings that these will KILL YOUR DOGS!

I do not think of Ice Chips as candy. They are the only Xylitol product that I have found that works with the dry mouth that results from chemotherapy treatment. Other products don't last long, and don't taste very good.

My sister found Lemon Ice Chips for me in Saskatchewan and I now order online, but I shall talk to the local natural products stores about them.

Thank you for making a difference to me!

I enjoy having different flavors every day. My new nickname at Alta View Hospital is now Ice Chips Candy Queen. I love going in the Gift Shop and on the website to create my own personal stash. I also have fun keeping our Gift Shop Manager updated on new flavors you enjoy creating. Will you please make chocolate flavors? I love Ice Chips Candy. Thank you Bev and Charlotte.
