THIS TASTES LIKE REAL CANDY, HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE WITHOUT ADDING SUGAR?
We have fallen for a sweet alternative called Erythritol which occurs naturally in e.g fruits, mushrooms and algae. Together with a pinch of Steviol glycosides it makes up the perfect sweetness in our products, without the common off-notes often associated with these sweetening alternatives. The plant fiber (Tapioca) we use also adds to our unique sweetness profile with its subtle and mild sweetness. Too good to be true? No - just a lot of work behind it!
I´M I DIABETIC. ARE TWEEKS´ SWEETS OK FOR ME TO EAT?
Since our sweets are made without adding loads of sugar our products only contain traces of sugars- naturally occurring in the tapioca fiber blend and in the lactose-free milk powder we are using.( 1,5-4,7g per 100g). Tolerability and effects on blood sugar differ from one individual to another. Therefore we can not make any general statements our line of products are suitable for all diabetics.
MOST SUGARFREE/SUGAR REDUCED ALTERNATIVES I HAVE TRIED MAKES MY STOMACH UNHAPPY - SHOULD I EXPECT THE SAME WITH SWEETS FROM TWEEK ?
Most sugar-free/sugar reduced sweets on the market can have unwanted effects on our bowel even when consumed in fairly small amounts. Erythritol is indeed considered a sugar alcohol but is one of the sugar alcohols with the highest tolerance levels. In addition to this the amount of Erythritol in our products is so small they aren´t considered laxative. All individuals are different, try what feels best for you.
YOU CLAIM YOUR SWEETS HAVE LESS CALORIES THAN TRADITIONAL CANDY- HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Erythritol and Steviol glycosides are virtually free from energy. Additionally, the amount of digestible carbohydrates in our sweets are significantly lower than in regular sweets. Therefore our candy has a reduced energy level.
ARE THERE ANY VEGAN ALTERNATIVES IN YOUR ASSORTMENT?
From the very start we have planned for vegan alternatives in our assortment. Although - there are some technical challenges removing sugar and gelatin and replacing them with other alternatives. One cannot simply switch one ingredient for another. We have high standards regarding both taste, appearance and mouthfeel for all our products and so far we are not 100% satisfied with the vegan gelling agents in our trials. We are working on it and hope to be able to offer vegan alternatives in a near future.
