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!

Left a review recently, but just wanted to leave another after receiving my custom 6-pack: love it all! I got root beer float, lemon, orange cream, licorice, coffee cream, and pumpkin spice. All are delicious! This is a perfect candy for someone on a low-carb diet. Love it so much!
A flavor I think would do well would be birthday cake or ice cream! :)

Saw these on Shark Tank and randomly came across them at a shop in the mall! The licorice ones are delicious! Just ordered a variety pack. Yum!

The fact that these are made locally is just icing on the cake! There are so many products out there that are "sugar free", but contain chemicals rather than naturally occurring sweeteners, it can be tricky to navigate when you are a diabetic.

I also enjoy the clean mouth feel that I get after I've eaten some of this candy, as opposed to other types of mints or candies that leave a gritty or chalky residue. THANK YOU!

I fell in love with this candy! I eat a lot of candy due to quitting smoking and all the sugar free stuff out there have many adverse chemicals. It would be great if you could send us returning customers a coupon or something. It is a bit pricey !! finally something that is good for you and tastes good!

I love the coffee/cream flavor, that's the only one I buy. I would adore it if you could make a chocolate, or even mocha, flavor. I didn't know anything about you when I started buying them at a local food coop. Too much xylitol does upset my digestion, but I try to adjust accordingly. Price is not an issue, since I don't use sugar at all.

big grin We just love Ice Chips. I purchased them on a whim from miracleskinnydrops web site and our family has been in love every since. We've already placed multiple orders!! Every time I offer a chip friends take one and then immediately ask for more!!
I agree the cost can be prohibitive but we buy them anyway. It would be nice to have a coupon from time to time. I also look forward to being able to purchase them from a local store. Please let me know were they are.

Hygienist in Yakima loves Ice Chips. Have on desk, a must have for those who can't use fluoride, co-workers, diabetics and anyone who is apprehensive to convert from sugar. Yummy, fun introduction to xylitol. Pricey for many; decay and disease more costly. I second the Starbucks flavors.
