A variety of no sugar added bars from Belgium sweetened with stevia or maltitol and ideal for those wishing to limit their sugar intake. Stevia is a sugar substitute that comes from a plant. Stevia is about 100 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, but has no carbohydrates, calories or artificial ingredients. Maltitol is a sugar alcohol (also called a polyol) with very similar properties to sugar but less calories. It occurs in nature but everything commercially available, is artificially produced from cereal crops. Balance lactose and gluten-free bars are a perfect rice-based alternative to dairy milk chocolate.
