Chocolate Raspberry Low-Carb Snack Pack by LC Foods
Are Raspberries Low-Carb?
Of the various fruits you can find at your local grocery store, raspberries are among the lowest in carb count ounce-for-ounce. One ounce of fresh raspberries contain 7g net carbs (total carbohydrate 15g minus dietary fiber 8g)–with Sugar coming in at 5g.
Unsweetened freeze-dried raspberries have a slightly higher carb count at 12g net carbs (total carbohydrate 18g minus dietary fiber 5g)–with Sugar coming in at 8g for one ounce.
That’s not too bad for an occasional snack but LC-Foods mixed their freeze-dried raspberries with sugar-free chocolate for this delicious treat–and it only has 2g net carbs per serving!
Not Your Typical Low-Carb Chocolate
Remember the old sugar-free chocolates we used to buy that were full of the sugar alcohol maltitol that gave us horrible gas and caused many of us to suffer from a laxative effect? So did LC-Foods and that’s why their sugar-free chocolate blend includes only a little bit of inulin (chicory root) and a little bit of erythritol as a combined sweetener. Yes, erythritol is a sugar alcohol but it is know to usually not cause stomach distress in most people and they only use a small amount to mix with the inulin. Their blend of sugar-free chocolate tastes great and doesn’t hurt our tummies.
Is Their Chocolate Raspberry Snack Pack a Worthy Treat?
Now take that nice sugar-free chocolate and combine it with some sugar-free freeze-dried raspberries and what do you get? An amazingly simple mix of low-carb sweet fruit with a strong dark chocolate taste. Each bag contains two 1/4 cup servings with only 2g of net carbs.
Sweet, simple and delicious, I give this easy-to-carry snack 4.5 stars out of 5. LC-Foods lets you order them individually or in packs of six or twelve. I suggest you buy the 12 pack so you’re less likely to run out.
