Today's Haul: Valor Sugar Free Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut. I got these 2 bars of sugar free dark chocolate for a price of 1 (buy one take one promo). It only costs PHP 214.00 at SM supermarket. 

Valor Sugar Free Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut contains maltitol. According to some reliable sources that I've read online, maltitol is a sugar alcohol. It is normally used in sugar free products such as candy, chocolate and nutrition bars. 

The taste has a resemblance with the regular sugar that's why many are using it in their products. Maltitol is a carbohydrate. It has 2 to 3 calories per gram. Since it's a carbohydrate, please expect it to have an impact to your blood glucose. And yes, some people who are consuming maltitol experience intestinal discomfort. So it's best to take it in moderation.
