Do your products contain Maltitol?
Some of our products may contain some very small amounts of maltitol. Of the total sugar alcohols, erythritol comprises most of the amount and has a much lower laxative effect. Generally, our products do not have any stomach upset which other sugar free products may have. However, the fiber content is high and can have some effect in large quantities.
What are Sugar Alcohols?
Sugar Alcohols are derived from sugar molecules. They include sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, lactitol, maltitol and others. They are typically ½ fewer calories than sugar and range in sweetness from about half to equal the sweetness as sugar. Sugar alcohols, or polyols, may be used in place of sugar for people on low carb diets and people with diabetes. Unlike sugar, they do not break down completely in the body, so blood glucose levels are not affected.

Are your products Kosher?
Yes. Our products are certified LVH Kosher (Louisville Vaad Hakashruth). However, the packages may or may not contain this information until previous packaging runs out.
Is Chocolite really just 30 calories?
Yes it is. The extraordinary low calorie count is achieved by minimizing the fat content and replacing typical 4 calorie per gram carbohydrates with 1 cal/gram carbohydrates. Our unique recipes incorporate such ingredients as 1 cal/gram polydextrose, 1 cal/gram chicory root fiber and .2 cal per gram erythritol. Chocolite has only a trace of sugar.
Is Hoodia safe for children?
We do not believe children should use Hoodia since no clinical studies have been completed. Please consult your family doctor for clarification.
How does Hoodia work?
Hoodia tricks the brain into thinking you’ve eaten & makes you feel full. Hoodia may work immediately or take a couple of weeks to fully enter the body.
Are there side effects from Hoodia?
There are no known side effects and Hoodia is not a stimulant. All clinicals indicate it is a safe option for weight loss.

Yes, our products work with Atkins, Weight Watcher, South Beach and virtually all other diets.

Inulin, Chicory Root and Oligofructose are all sources of fiber. These are carbohydrates found naturally in many plants and can be used to add fiber to diets.
