Nestle has manufactured a low-sugar chocolate bar that is just like the original one. It tastes so good that you cannot differentiate between the fake one and the real thing.

Calling all chocoholics! Nestle has found a way of making a chocolate bar that contains a fraction of the sugar of the original. The good thing is that it tastes just as delicious and scrumptious as the real one.

Using 40% less sugar, this chocolate bar is a dieter’s dream come true. Nestle as everyone knows is the maker of KitKat, Aero, BarOne and Peppermint Crisp. The trick lay in changing the structure of sugar so that it tasted sweeter despite being present in the chocolate bar in small amounts. 

The process was one of making hollow sugar crystals. These crystals dissolved faster than sugar thus delivering a solid sweet punch in a quicker manner.

However, there is a catch to it. This process doesn’t work in case of soft drinks. The whole procedure is currently being considered for patenting, according to TimesLive.

Nestle is leaking the news regarding this product before its time. By the time the year 2018 arrives, Nestle will be using this product in its manufactured chocolate bars. 

A range of confections will have this quick-dissolving sugar as a part of them. The products will go global too. Nestle wants to reduce the amount of sugar in its products since sugar causes cavities and promotes obesity.

This is especially so among children. However, this will not make chocolate bars any more healthier. It will merely save up on a few extra calories.

Therefore, if you are looking to shed a few pounds, by all means go ahead with a little chocoholic indulgence. Yet if you are looking for health, then it is natural whole foods which you should be checking out at the supermarket aisles. 

The fact that this new chocolate bar does not sacrifice in matters of taste is a very laudatory step. It is the assembly of this sugar that is different in its makeup.

As taxes will be increased on sugar soon, Nestle is looking to find ways of bypassing this stipulation of the law. Also Nestle wants to gain a competitive edge over other rival companies such as Hershey and Mondelez.

Global rates of obesity have skyrocketed. In order to alleviate this ultimately mortal illness, Nestle’s strategy just might work in the end.
