Good-for-you products with less, or no sugar or fat
Many without added sugar or sugar-free products replace sugar with sweeteners like polyols which may have a laxative effect. The Barry Callebaut Group developed a whole range of products with no side effects, including sugar-reduced chocolate sweetened with stevia or fruit sugars.
Other products developed in the past few years include products with less fat or less saturated fat, fat-reduced and water-based fillings. Just recently the Barry Callebaut Group was granted a patent for a process to produce fat-reduced milk chocolate.
