Lawson, a prominent convenience store chain in Japan, has recently added an intriguing new item to its product line-up – sugar-free candies that are described as tasteless.
Created with health-conscious consumers in mind, these candies are made from just two ingredients: polydextrose and erythritol. Polydextrose, a synthetic sugar substitute, is typically used in low-sugar and reduced-calorie foods due to its low caloric value. Erythritol, on the other hand, is an organic sugar substitute. It is nearly calorie-free and does not contribute to blood sugar spikes, making it a popular ingredient in sugar-free beverages and food products.
Although it might sound unusual to have candies that are essentially tasteless, they provide a good alternative for individuals looking to reduce their sugar intake. However, despite being sugar-free, they should still be consumed in moderation due to their caloric content.
