Allergen-free and Kid Friendly Organic Candy
St. Claire's Organics™ is proud of a long list of allergen-free organic candies.
[ClickPress, Sat Feb 24 2007] When St. Claire's Organics™ opened their doors in 1993, founder and Master Herbalist Debra St. Claire knew she was opening a truly different kind of candy shop. This candy store would produce allergen-free organic candies, and would contain none of the questionable ingredients that other (breath mint) candies do. In fact Debra St. Claire began St. Claire's Organics™ because she saw a need for an alternative to Altoids® with out animal by-products or refined sugars.
That is an impressive goal, especially when you look at the long list of allergen-free items St. Claire's Organics™ consumers do not have to worry about, and this is what makes St. Claire's Organics™ the child-friendly candy.
All of St. Claire’s Organics™ breath mints, sweets, tarts and aromatherapy pastilles are allergen-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy free, casein-free, genetically-modified-organism-free (GMO), soy-free, corn-free, tree nut and peanut-free, egg-free, fish and shellfish-free, 100% vegetarian, fat-free, and low calorie.
What is really amazing about St. Claire’s Organics™ is that their sweets have a low-glycemic index. A low-glycemic index rates how quickly the body is able to digest food, which would raise the body's blood glucose levels. A low-glycemic index is ideal for diabetics and those concerned with dieting healthy. Read more....

"We made this web site full of vibrant colors and images to match the vibrant tastes of our candies, mints and pastilles. In the same way this website is a treat for the eyes, our USDA organic/Allergen-free products are a treat for any palette...," adding, "...especially the aromatherapy pastilles, which are extremely effective in soothing upset stomachs and sore throats!"Read more....
Boulder, Colorado: Hattie says in the opening of this episode of the Small Business School Show, "When most of us are disappointed in a product, we shrug our shoulders and don't buy it again." Entrepreneurs are different.
With vegetarian sensitivities, Debra St.Claire was so disappointed when she discovered that there was beef gelatin in her favorite peppermints (Altoids®), she said, "I'll make my own!" That's an entrepreneur!
Now, if you have not watched this episode yet, you should know that Debra already had substantial talents as an herbalist; she was also involved with medicinals and the preservation of the tropical rain forests where these medicinals grow naturally. Learn more...
Boulder, Colorado: Debra St. Claire started her new business in 1993 because she could see how to merge her two loves together in a new way. She decided to make her own peppermint; she was willing to compete with the industry's giants to help further her cause to preserve a very special part of the earth, the Ethno-Medicine Preservation Project in the Amazon Basin. Medicinals from those rain forests have a chemistry that heals in ways that pharmeceuticals do not.
Obviously this woman has a special audacity and passion for life!
Out of one of America's hotbeds for creativity – Boulder, Colorado – comes the story of St.Claire's Organic Sweets. Now on hundreds of store shelves, Debra has wittingly and unwittingly involved hundreds of thousands of people (her customers) in a very important preservation project. Also, she loves poetry and every time somebody opens one of her peppermint (or, is it a breathmint?) tins, she gives them a little universal truth – like the poetry from the heart of people like Mahatma Gandhi.
