What is coconut sugar?
Coconut sugar is an unrefined, natural sugar and is the only type of sugar we put into our chocolate. In comparison to white sugar, coconut sugar is unbleached, unrefined and has a lower GI, which means it doesn’t cause huge spikes and crashes in your blood sugar levels. It also has less impact on the environment because it is harvested in a very sustainable way. Read more here.
What is the difference between cacao and cocoa?
Quite simply, raw cocoa is called cacao. Cacao is not roasted at high temperatures. All of our chocolate bars contain raw cacao which has significantly more health benefits than cocoa, such as:
- Very high in anti-oxidants (more than blueberries)
- Highest plant-based source of iron
- Good source of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain
- Contains more calcium than cow's milk
- Natural mood elevator
Where do you ship to?
At the moment we can only ship to Australia due to potential issues with melting chocolate. We are working on a solution to make our chocolate available internationally. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for announcements.
Why has my chocolate gone all white and chalky?
This is a sign of good quality chocolate, which has gone out of temper. Which simply means that the cacao fat molecules have separated from the rest of the ingredients to make their own pretty patterns. This happens when bars go through big temperature fluctuations (ie. melt) and then re-form.
They are perfectly safe to eat, but will probably taste better if you melt them and drizzle them over strawberries or some vegan marshmallows. See our blog for more ideas of how to play with melted chocolate. Alternatively, you can return them to the store you purchased them from and ask for a refund.
I can't find your products, what do I do?
- Check our online stockist list for a breakdown of your local stockists.
- Ask your local to get Chocolate Yogi in to their store - stores love to hear what their customers want and it also shows them that you want us to be in there as much as we do!
- Buy from us online and sign up to our newsletter so you are the first to hear about special offers.
Are your bars palm oil free?
Yes, we do not use any palm oil in our bars and none of our ingredients have any impact on orangutans or their environment.
Are you fair trade?
We only work with suppliers who trade under fair trade conditions and we’re are working on getting our fair trade certification, so watch this space.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
Our display boxes are made from 100% recycled cardboard and are printed with soy based inks. We are currently doing research and development on introducing a compostable wrapper, hopefully by the end of the year, so watch this space.
