A sugar-free chocolate?! Yes, it’s a reality and it’s all thanks to New South Wales couple, Bernie Walker and Sabina Muir, the creators of Little Zebra Chocolate.
Both big sweet lovers but also pre-diabetic, they began searching for the best in sugar-free products to include in their own diet.
Research into healthier alternatives to sugar saw them develop a goal to create a healthier chocolate for the sweet tooths of the world.
Using their lounge room as a ‘test-kitchen’, they spent two years perfecting the recipes.
In place of sugar they add Xylitol to their chocolate.
“It is almost cruel to cover up the flavour of the chocolate with sugar.” Bernie Walker explains.
Xylitol has 40% fewer calories then sugar and contains no fructose, so it doesn’t raise blood sugar levels. Many studies also suggest that it can improve dental health and have various other health benefits too.
Last year they launched their chocolate to the world, now crafting it in a completely nut-free factory. The delicious, rich chocolates aren’t just sugar-free but are hand-crafted and available in a variety that appeals to all types of consumers.
“Our chocolates can be enjoyed by people of all ages, vegans, vegetarians, people with gluten, lactose and soy intolerances, diabetics or anyone seeking lower GI chocolates.” Bernie Walker says.
With no GMOs, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, Little Zebra Chocolate ticks all the boxes for consumers’ demands in healthy and transparent food.
