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!

Love these candies! I have enjoyed every flavor with the exception of one which is being replaced by Ice Chips as they have their love it guarantee! I have dry mouth and these are so helpful.
I also purchased some for family members who are diabetic to help curb cravings. Thank you, thank you for a terrific product!

I just found this candy at a natural health store in Minot, ND, which Christmas shopping. It is absolutely amazing and sooooo delicious. I fell in love with the Clove flavor instantly. I'm type 2 diabetic and this candy is perfect for easing my sweet tooth. I also love the fresh cooling feeling.

I don't get to Minot much so I just placed an order online since my tin is almost out and I'm rationing myself to make it last until the shipment come.

Awesome candy! Does wonders for my sweet tooth. I have been trying to get away from consuming Aspartame, so I was excited to find Ice Chips! Peppermint is my favorite. I just ordered the pineapple coconut, which I'm looking forward to. A little pricey but well worth it. A tin lasts me a long time. Also, there is a warning on the tin that states it is toxic to dogs and small animals.

Great product! Everything claimed is true, and there is a caution about toxicity to pets on the box, regardless what Deb in El Sagundo yelled.

mmmm delicious! I've tried the sour cherry and green apple both equally tasty. So good I placed an order for the large multi pack! Did not up my blood sugar. My Dr. will be glad to know.

Would like to see pink grapefruit soon. I'll be the first to order.
