Taste of Sweets

Can sugar free sweets taste any good? Absolutely!

When manufacturing it’s products, DE BRON uses only first class ingredients, mostly from natural sources. Our sugar free substitutes are Maltitol, Isomalt and Lactitol, which are sweeteners that taste just as good as normal sugar. With pride we can say that our DE BRON sweets taste just as nice, if not superior, than the same products with sugar in.

Health Sweets

Is it true that a DE BRON candy doesn’t cause tooth decay?
Yes, and that is because there are a few conditions necessary that need to be present to cause cavities in teeth.

What are cavities?
At any individual there are billions of bacteria present in the mouth. They attach themselves to the tooth and form a sticky layer (plaque). At any moment an individual is eating sugar (sucrose) , these bacteria receive their food and they are fermenting it to different kinds of organic acid.

The pH in the plaque then falls, because of this acid formation and will then slowly start to dissolve the minerals of the tooth structure. This is also called an “Acid attack”. When sugar is often eaten, frequent acid attacks can eventually lead to the formation of cavities in the teeth.

How do we prevent it?
One good way to prevent caries is to brush your teeth regularly. The plaque is then removed. Furthermore the use of Fluoride in toothpaste makes the enamel more resistant against acid attacks.

However, if you frequently eat confectionery, you can now do more! Candy’s from “DE BRON” that contain sugar substitutes, are disliked by the bacteria. They won’t eat it and no acid is produced! In that way the formation of cavities is reduced or stopped!

More about the use of sugar substitutes
We already told you that by replacing the sugar by sugar substitutes the risk of caries decreases because there is no acid formation in the plaque.

Another thing that happens is that the consumer gets more awareness that one is eating sugar. Children can now make a choice between “tooth friendly” candy’s or the traditional candy’s which are bad for their teeth. They will be more aware of their choice.

The sweet taste of the tooth friendly products is produced by substitutes as Maltitol, Mannitol, Sorbitol or Xylitol. Mostly the main component of sugarfree confectionery is Maltitol.

For overall health these substitutes are no problem. Only when one exaggerates the use – to much is never good! – light laxation effects can occur. This is only temporary and not dangerous.

Gluten Free Sweets

In today’s world doctors and dieticians regularly prescribe gluten free products to their patients. Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, rye, barley, oats and is considered unhealthy for certain conditions. We now make gluten free sweets – check the specification on our sweets to see whether they meet your personal requirments.

After extensive research DE BRON have identified alternative ingredients such as Arabic Gum, Polyols and modified starch which allows us to state that approximately 90% of our assortment of sugar free products is also gluten free.

De Bron Sweets for Diabetics

DE BRON sweets are suitable for diabetics. The sugar levels in blood are influenced by a person’s intake of sugar. The glucose level is regulated by insulin which is produced by the body when sugar levels fluctuate. However, diabetics have faulty systems and the insulin levels are not properly regulated by the pancreas, leading to higher or lowel levels of sugar than normal.

What is the secret of De Bron sweets
Instead of sugar, they contain sugar substitutes such as Maltitol, Isomalt and Lactitol. These are members of the chemical group called Polyols.

The beneficial characteristic of Polyols is that these are not converted into glucose, therefore no extra insulin is needed to regulate the glucose level in the body. This makes our products ideal for diabetics or sugar intolerant people.

Coffee Capsules for Nespresso Machines

Finally! You can buy a full range of flavours for your coffee machine that are compatible with Nespresso coffee machines. The capsules are also known as coffee pods, but call them what you want, they are still not easy to find.

Capsules for Nespresso machines are a mission to buy and don’t seem to be available in grocery stores. Stocking up on them requires a certain dedication to your coffee experience because you need to make your way specifically to one of the few stores that sells them and that store invariably does not have anything else that you need.

Everybody knows the superb range of machines that Nespresso makes and the quality of coffee and froth that they are capable of. Usually that quality of cappuccino is only available in your favorite coffee shop, but with one of their machines, you can enjoy that style and quality at home.

The Gourmet Food Shop now stocks coffee capsules for the Nespresso type of machine and the Lavazza range of coffee machines. You can easily add coffee on to your monthly shopping at their store for the best quality deli items, from imported salmon to delicious ice tea. And your shopping will be delivered for free to your home!

Online shopping is the easiest way to stock up capsules for your Nespresso-style and Lavazza coffee machine. Enjoy the best brew at home or at the office from our superb House of Coffees range of products.

Just for the record, Nespresso trademark is owned by Nestle SA and is not affiliated with The Gourmet Food Shop. Although the capsules we sell are compatible, they are not Nespresso pods.
