THIS TASTES LIKE REAL CANDY, HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE WITHOUT ADDING SUGAR?
We have fallen for a sweet alternative called Erythritol which occurs naturally in e.g fruits, mushrooms and algae. Together with a pinch of Steviol glycosides it makes up the perfect sweetness in our candy, without the common off-notes often associated with these sweetness alternatives. The plant fiber(Tapioca) we are using also adds to our unique sweetness profile with its subtile and mild sweetness. Too good to be true? No - just a lot of work behind it!
I´M I DIABETIC. IS TWEEKs´ CANDY OK FOR ME TO EAT?
Since our candy is made without adding loads of sugar our candy only contain traces of sugars naturally occurring in the tapioca fiber blend and in the lactose free milk powder we are using.( 1,5-4,7g per 100g). Tolerability and effects on blood sugar differ from one individual to another. Therefore we will not make any general statements our line of products are suitable for all diabetics.
Most sugarfree/sugar reduced alternatives i have tried makes my stomach unhappy - should I expect the same with candy from Tweek ?
Most sugar free/sugar reduced sweets out there can have an unwanted effect on our bowel even when consumed in fairly small amounts. Erythritol is indeed considered a sugar alcohol but is one of the sugar alcohols with the highest tolerance levels. In addition to this the amount of Erythritol in our products is so small they aren´t considered laxative. All individuals are different, try what feels best for you.
You claim your candy has less calories than traditional candY- how is that possible?
Erythritol and Steviol glycosides are virtually free from energy. Additionally the amount of digestible carbohydrates in our candy is significantly lower than in regular candy. Therefore our candy has a reduced energy level.
Will eating tweeks´candy make me happy?
Oh yes. It is highly likely.
