Low-Carb Lean-Up Chocolate Is Maltitol-Free

Carbothin has a new chocolate bar sweetened with chicory root

One of the biggest problems with most of the low-carb chocolate bars that have been introduced to the market over the years is the fact that so many of the manufacturers took the easy road out when it came to their choice of sweetener. Rather than going out and researching what people who are livin' la vida low-carb really wanted, they stooped to the lowest common denominator by using the cheapest, most dastardly sugar alternative this world has ever seen--MALTITOL!

For that reason alone, I like to highlight any new low-carb chocolates that contain ZERO MALTITOL in them so you don't have to experience the uncomfortable feeling of excessive bloating and gas that the infamous and nasty sugar alcohol causes.

And I am excited to tell you that I've found one that actually tastes pretty good as well. It's from a company called Carbothin and the name of the low-carb chocolate product is called Lean-Up.

Available exclusively from our friends at LO-CARB U Foods right now, this maltitol-free chocolate bar (WOO HOO!) is also low-glycemic and tastes fabulous thanks to a proprietary blend of an up-an-coming sweetener made from chicory root as well as the stomach-friendly sugar alcohol erythritol. This special mixture of sweeteners along with real cocoa butter, chocolate liquor, and some whey protein make these Lean-Up bars delightful to your tastebuds!

Here's the skinny on the nutrition found in each Lean-Up bar:

Calories: 110
Total Fat: 9g
Trans Fat: 0g
Saturated Fat: 6g
Cholesterol: 2mg
Sodium: 15mg
Total Carbohydrates: 15g
Dietary Fiber: 8g
Sugar Alcohol: 6g
Net Carbs: 1g
Protein: 2g

The Lean-Up chocolate bars are available in a variety of flavors, including Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Almond, Chocolate Crisp, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup.

So how do they taste?

I found them to be very creamy with a rich chocolate flavor and just enough sweetness to bring out the chocolate. More than anything was the assurance in the back of my mind as I was eating it that I could rest easy and enjoy a low-carb chocolate bar for once without worrying about the consequences of doing so an hour after eating it. :) Lean-Up bars had NONE of that and were well worth each and every bite.

Available individually or in cases of 24, you'll want to try Lean-Up chocolate bars for yourself and your family by clicking here.
