8 of 8 people found the following review helpfulApril 18, 2017Reviewer: Roxana in California* "Sweetened with malitol" are words diabetics and those trying to lose weight should avoid! Malitol tastes good in chocolates, but it has a glycemic index of 35, which is much too high. There are other brands of sugar free chocolate chips sweetened with low GI sweeteners, and are very good. For more GI friendly sugar free chips, try Lily's or LC Foods. Netrition carries both.
3 of 3 people found the following review helpfulMay 11, 2013Reviewer: Scott in Indiana* I tried it and it set me back a bit on my weight loss goal. Not good for a low carb lifestyle. Maltitol has nearly the same glycemic index as real sugar and does cause stalls for those on a low carb diet. Highly not recommended. Look for a brand with stevia or similar.

I have made Kevin's Cookie recipe before with erythritol based chips instead, like the ones from Dixie Diner. I have also made them with Eat Well, Be Well chips which has since gone out of business, but was fabulous. I hope netrition will discourage manufacturers from using maltitol--it's not doing us any low carb favors.
