EGCG Candy - Just in Time for the Holiday Season

Date: December 11, 2004

I thought I was the only klutz in the kitchen, until I started getting all these desperate emails from folks who could not follow the quite basic recipe I had for Harvey's Chocolates. On the other side of the spectrum, there were also the picky ones who did not like the sugar content of my recipe, how come I did not have a recipe for sugar free variety? Well, we try to respond to the needs of our readers, even though it may not always happen immediately.

We are pleased to announce that after a little encouragement from us, two independent sources are ready to ship EGCG-containing candies. Canadian supplier Origin Biomedicinals, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, is ready to ship its Can-Tea Max hard candy, ideal for slow oral-mucosal delivery of the EGCG. Instead of sugar, the company uses maltose in the product, to make it friendlier to diabetics and teeth. Neuchatel Chocolates of Oxford Pennsylvania, takes a different approach with its delicious (we think) EGCG-laced dark Swiss chocolate and sugar-free milk chocolates. To read more about these items and how you can order them, please visit our page on EGCG Candies.

I must state for the record CLL Topics has no financial dealings with either of these companies. No kick-backs, no money, nothing, nada. We are bringing you the information, but we are not guaranteeing their products, nor are we soliciting your business on their behalf. As always, use your head and be a smart consumer. It is your money, your body.

What do you give as a present to the guy who has everything, including CLL?

Be well,
