Sweetsmith Sugar-Free candies are sweetened with isomalt, a sugar replacer made from pure beet sugar with a glycemic index of 2. It is the number one sugar replacer worldwide in hard candies.
Isomalt falls into the category of sugar alcohols. It doesn't cause dental decay, and it behaves like a fibre instead of a sugar when it is digested. We recommend eating less than 25g of isomalt per day. If you've never had a candy with isomalt before, try having just a little bit at first, then the other half later. We also recommend only to eat sugar free candies after eating a meal, not on an empty stomach.
Brittle and toffee can last up to 6 months when stored in a cool, dry area. It is also freezer-friendly for up to 1 year in an airtight container.
