Sugar Free vs Unsweetened - What’s the Difference?
It is important to know the difference between sugar free and unsweetened chocolate as one contains sugar and one doesn’t.
When chocolate is labelled ‘unsweetened’ it means that there has been no sugar added (like our delicious Joy Bites bars!). However, naturally occurring sugars will still be present.
Sugar free chocolate, on the other hand, is made with alternative ingredients; plant-based Stevia extract in the case of Russell Stover chocolate and candy. Stevia is derived from the leaves of the Stevia plant and has zero calories. 200 times sweeter than regular sugar, this alternative is the perfect choice for diabetics and anyone watching their calorie intake.
Can you bake with sugar free chocolate?
You can bake with sugar free chocolate in the same way you bake with regular chocolate. You can add our Candy Coated Gems or Mini Peanut Butter Cups to cookies and cakes, and we even have semi-sweet and dark chocolate sugar free baking chips.
