About us

Maine Cottage Foods, LLC, never adds sugar or high glycemic sweeteners. We believe that using genuine, premium quality low-carb ingredients is healthful and renews us so we can succeed at weight loss and control. We have fun eating our treats and serving them to our friends and families - and we hope you will, too.

Maine Cottage Foods ®, LLC was formed in 2003 to relieve the boredom that often hits those of us on carb controlled diets and, therefore, improve diet success. Our customers are losing weight, are controlling their weight, are diabetics, or near-dibetics, or are the people who live with them, work with them, or love them - with the common desire to safely enjoy great chocolate.

We are the original maltitol-free company. We chose the ultra-low glycemic natural sweetener, erythritol, because it is the best one out there. Our chocolate will not secretly sabotage your diet goals and hard work. Maine Cottage Foods will continue to be the leading edge in using the highest quality, truly low carb ingredients. There are imitators of our little company, but no true competitors. We do admit to having fun providing new, off-beat flavors. But make no mistake, we are very, very serious. And just like we were first to recognize the benefits of being maltitol free, we will be the first every step of the way towards perfecting truly low carb chocolate. Anything less is unacceptable.

Donna, the chocolatier, is extremely well versed in the principles of nutrition and its effects on health, well being, and ageing. She knows that treats are often a necessity in this hectic world and tries whenever possible to "sneak" nutrition into our products. If she could chocolate-coat a sardine and have it taste good, she would!

Donna is concerned about chemicals and other adulterants in foods, especially in conventional diabetic-safe products. She does all her baking fresh from scratch. Her concern with the healthfulness of food leads her to keep a large organic garden and greenhouse and to naturally raise free range chickens for their eggs. Donna is the stereotypical "earth mother", except for her degree in electrical engineering from M.I.T.

Arlene has a Ph.D. in molecular biology. It was Arlene's own experience with the Atkin's Diet combined with her suspicious nature that led her to investigate low carb ingredients to see if they were "for real". Then she got angry and got together with Donna to make sweets that were best for her low carb diet - then success followed. Donna loves to provide for people, the more the merrier, and so Maine Cottage Foods, LLC was born.

The cottage really exists (though now it is a smoky purple color). Our bright cottage logo was chosen to renew your spirits.

By the way, we love doing this!

Donna and Arlene
