WHY NO ADDED SUGAR CHOCOLATES ?
It's the question we hear constantly! But it's true. Ditch the Guilt sugar free chocolate bars have been manufactured from an original recipe that contains absolutely zero sugar and yet still has the full texture and flavor of a luxury gourmet chocolate.
All of our Chocolates are manufactured using Organic Cacao beans, Cacao Butter and Stevia.
We often hear the argument that sugar is fine in moderation and that we shouldn’t eliminate any one food group. Obviously eliminating a macro nutrient like protein, carbohydrates, or fat would be incredibly unhealthy. But sugar isn’t a macro nutrient. It’s not a food group. Sugar is present in many foods (like fruit), but on its own, sugar is only a simple carbohydrate.
Sugar provides quickly digested, empty calories but doesn’t offer any nutrients. In fact, sugar actually pulls minerals (like calcium and magnesium) from the rest of the body for digestion. So sugar is, in some ways, an anti-nutrient.
Little bit of sugar, doesn't hurt. Isn't it ?
Why is processed Sugar bad?
Processed sugar causes below effects on the body:
stresses the liver (excess intake of fructose can cause the liver to create a lot of extra fat, some of which is stored in the liver)
increases bad cholesterol and triglycerides
can contribute to leptin resistance, which can then cause many other issues like sleep problems and weight gain
creates an addictive sugar response in the brain
Additionally, sugar doesn’t fill you up and instead encourages you to eat more (often because of a blood sugar crash).
Natural sweeteners like maple syrup or coconut sugar still spike the insulin and cause the body to gain weight, Sucrose, Fructose or Glucose all act the same way sugar does. Jaggery and other natural sugars if not prepared properly and has impurities, can increase your risk of getting intestinal parasites and worms. Natural Sugars contain 385 calories in 100 grams, which is definitely not a food for people who are dieting.
At the end of the day, sugar is sugar.
What is Stevia and why we use it ?
Stevia is the name given to a green leafy herbal plant, and has been used for hundreds of years because of its extremely sweet leaves. Stevia is valued most for the sweet taste, which makes it capable of replacing sugar in a diet. Importantly, it also has a zero calorific count pushing it in the ‘no-calorie’ food zone. The health benefits of stevia include diabetes management, weight loss, skin care, prevents cancer and much more.Along with all the health benefits mentioned above stevia is also known to possess anti-diarrheal, anti-hyperglycemic, antihypertensive, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, anti-diarrheal, and immune-modulatory actions.
More that all it tastes delicious when mixed with chocolate.
What is Ditch The Guilt & how our bars are Keto Certified & have no added Sugar ?
The keto diet is essentially a high-fat diet — your meals are 40 or 50 % fat; about 20-40 % protein; and about 5% carbohydrate. It is not an Atkins high-protein diet.
The keto diet switches you from burning glucose (which carbs provide) to burning ketones (which fat produces) for energy. When you do this, interesting things happen:
Your metabolism speeds up.
Your hunger goes away.
Your muscle mass increases.
Your blood pressure and heart disease risk profile improve
The key is this: Eating fat does not make your insulin go up, as eating carbs or protein does. So the keto diet does not spike your insulin, and you don’t store fat. Instead, you burn it, creating the ketones that give you an effective and efficient metabolic jolt.
Our Chocolates are Manufactured to be 100% keto certified. 40-50% of our bars are High on Mono saturated fats, Poly-saturated fats with 0 Trans Fat and 30-40% of our Chocolate is high on Protein leaving very little room for Carbs. So enjoy these delicious treats whether you are on keto or just want to follow a healthy life style.
