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 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.

I LOVE Ice Chips! The cinnamon is my favorite. I have a condition that makes me cough all the time and this candy is the only thing that works stopping the coughing. Better than anything my doctor has given me. AND these were recommended by my dentist for healthy teeth!! Thank you Grandmas... for your awesome invention!

I recieved a care package from my son stationed in Germany, and Mango, Orange Pineapple and Mandarin Orange were in it. I tried the Orange Pineapple and LOVED it! so much that I immediately ordered 2 - 11 variety paks on Amazon. So far:
Orange Pineapple : please make this a regular flavor! it is my favorite
Mango: not a fan, but I dont like Mangoes..
Cinnamon: crisp, spicy and cool all at the same time. just like a red hot, but no sugar
Licorice: old time black jelly bean flavor, strong and delicious.
Root Beer Float: okay not as strong as I thought it would be

Still working my way through the rest, and I checked out the website and was happy to see even more flavors. I am looking forward to trying the Pumpkin Spice...
Thanks 'Grannies" for developing a great product

My wife and I tried the cinnamon flovor candy for the first time yesterday and we reordered today. Great flavor, a cooling cinnamon flavor. My wife loves these; I would like a little stronger flavor but enjoy these very much. We ordered a couple different flavors this time. You'll love 'em!
