Plamil launches 'No Added Sugar' dairy free chocolate
There is a growing number of customers that want to reduce their
sugar consumption or who wish to cut sugar from their diet altogether.
These No Added sugar Chocolate bars use the sweetness in Xylitol, which
is made from birch trees. Xylitol is known to have benefits in oral health
and therefore ideal for those that do not want sugar replaced by chemical
With 60% cocoa these bars have a really good chocolate taste. Hemp has

not only good for your teeth but evidence shows it may be good for your
