Maltitol in Atkins Products on

Many Atkins products contain the sugar alcohol maltitol, which has a much high glycemic index than other sugar alcohols.

Of the selection on, I have divided the catalogue into those with no, some and a lot of maltitol. I also add my reviews for those that I've tried.

No maltitol
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar
Dark Chocolate Cherry & Nuts Bar
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Bar
Peanut Butter Fudge Crisp

Shakes: vanilla, strawberry, cafe caramel, dark chocolate, milk chocolate

Chocolate chip granola
Excellent - like the real thing

Light & Crispy Lemon Bar
Very good. Crispy, with a good lemon flavour

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Bar

A bit of maltitol
Caramel chocolate peanut nougat
Alright. Like a lousier Snickers bar

Significant amount of maltitol:
Caramel Chocolate Nut Roll
Caramel Double Chocolate Crunch Bar
Caramel Nut Chew
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bar
Nutty Fudge Brownie Bar

Blueberry Greek yogurt
Excellent - like the real thing [Ed: The version that I bought doesn't have maltitol though, but glycerin. The official Atkins website matches the ingredients list of what I bought]

Chocolate Caramel Mousse
Okay, like a lousier Mars bar

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar (a bit less maltitol than the rest)
Weird. A bit chalky.

Chocolate Coconut Bar
Good coconut + chocolate taste

Chocolate Hazelnut Bar
Alright. Like a granola bar.

Cookies n' Creme Bar
Good: Convincing chocolate taste. Crispy with a layer of cream

A LOT of maltitol (it's the top ingredient)
Peanut Butter Cups
Great. Convincing.

Chocolate Candies
Good but when cold they're not so good. But if not cold they may melt.

Chocolate Peanut Candies
Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Crunch Bar
(these 2 have less maltitol than the first 2 but still a lot - it's one of the top ingredients)
