Natural Foods Pioneer Creates Healthier Baking Chips


Sunspire Chocolates, the nation's leading producer of all natural and organic baking chips, has introduced the first white chocolate chips made without trans fats. Just in time for the holiday baking season, the chips are an all-natural alternative to conventional baking chips that contain unhealthy hydrogenated oils, trans fats and refined sugars.

Unlike many companies who use partially hydrogenated oils and trans fats to increase shelf life and flavor stability, Sunspire formulates high quality confections without the use of trans fats, which raise LDL (bad) cholesterol, thought to contribute to an increased the risk of heart disease.

"Choosing products made without trans fat is an important part in the dietary prevention of some chronic diseases," said Dana Nahai, Atlanta-based registered dietician. "It is wonderful  to see food companies taking the initiative to create healthier products without unnecessary trans fats that taste equal to or better than their conventional counterparts."

Sunspire White Chocolate Chips have a rich, creamy taste with a hint of vanilla. They are excellent in cookie, cake, candy and frosting recipes and contain no artificial flavors or preservatives. The chips are available throughout the U.S. in Whole Foods Market and Wild Oats Markets and in select grocery stores.
