Sugar-free Stevia Russell Stover Candy



Recommended Posts

Been investigating sugar-free candy by type of sweetener. Many are Maltitol, Sucrulose, aspertame, Splenda. Found some Russell Stover candy swetened with Stevia sold at Walmart. chocolate assortment or chocolate mint and caramels. Doesn't give calories, macros or ingredients. Also sold at Kroger in smaller packages. Will check it out on my next grocery run and get photo of back of package.Screenshot_20200727-194937_Chrome.thumb.jpg.a9a42308c589c3263473f10bec9be8c4.jpg Screenshot_20200727-194531_Chrome.thumb.jpg.7d142f33439b34d1fbaf2e0477f1d23f.jpg

HUGE disappointment. First ingredient is Maltitol. Last ingredient is Stevia. So mostly sugar alcohol with one drop of Stevia. Didn't buy. Always read label. So they put Stevia in big letters on package but barely any. Mostly sugar alcohol.

Instead I bought 85% Cacao Dark chocolate Bar. 3 squares is one serving. 170 calories, 5g Dietary Fiber, 4g added sugar, 3g Protein and 15g fat. So one square just 1/3 of that. So about 53 calories, 1.3g sugar. I can live with that.

I haven't had surgery yet, just getting used to all this. Thanks for the information! I was on Keto prior to starting this journey so the sugar alcohol was ok for me.

A lot of people cannot tolerate sugar alcohol after surgery. Causes diarrhea, abdominal pain.

a lot of people can't tolerate sugar alcohols BEFORE surgery, either. If you ever have few minutes, get on Amazon and read the reviews for sugar free Haribo Gummy Bears...

I've never had issues with sugar alcohols, but I know a lot of people DO
