Our story began several years ago when we recognised the health dangers of sucrose (cane sugar). As chocolate lovers we realised it was time to make delicious, quality sucrose-free chocolates that we too could enjoy.


What Is Sucrose?

Sucrose is a naturally occurring sugar, commonly known as table sugar or cane sugar. Sucrose is found naturally in most plants, but especially in sugarcane and sugar beets. Sucrose is a disaccharide sugar made up of two monosaccharide sugar units – glucose and fructose.

Why Sucrose-Free?

Sucrose has been called a poison, a drug and a toxin, and over the past few years scientists have linked sucrose to illnesses ranging from heart disease and diabetes to cancer, ulcers, gallstones, arthritis and adrenal fatigue. Sucrose suppresses the immune system, promotes aging, and affects the brain in the same way that morphine and other opioids do.

What Is Rhubee’s Sucrose-free Belgian Chocolate Sweetened With?

Rhubee’s sucrose-free Belgian dark and milk chocolate is sweetened with maltitol, a sugar alcohol (a polyol) used as a sugar substitute. Our caramel and hazelnut praline fillings are sweetened with agave sugar.
