Our chocolate is made with pure, vegan, certified organic, wholefood ingredients and is a healthier way of getting your chocolate on! We make our chocolate from raw cacao which is one of the richest known sources of anti-oxidants on the planet. Our raw chocolate is also free from refined cane sugar, gluten, preservatives, GMO, so is gentler on your body and your mind.
Coconut Sugar: is a lower GI option than cane sugar and is simply coconut nectar which has been evaporated in to 'sugar' crystals. It retains many nutrients, such as iron, zinc, calcium and potassium. While we feel it is a healthier alternative, it is still a sugar and should be enjoyed in moderation.
Raw Coconut is used instead of dairy milk. Coconut is fast growing in its reputation as a super food and we love enjoying all of its benefits which reportedly include - increased energy, weight loss, natural antibiotic activity, cholesterol reduction and insulin stabilisation. We use coconut because it makes our chocolate taste creamy and luxurious!
Coconut flour is made from dehydrated and defatted coconut and has the highest percentage of dietary fibre of any flour (38.5%). It also an excellent source of protein and contains as much protein as wheat flour minus the gluten, so is a good alternative for those who cannot digest wheat flour.
Raw Cacao provides a high dose of antioxidants which are believed to help protect your nervous system from damage, prevent high blood pressure, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. It also contains lots of yummy minerals such as magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc, copper and manganese. We are not saying replace your carrots with raw chocolate, but you might as well enjoy some extra benefits as you chow down on your favourite treat! Also remember that dairy blocks the absorption of antioxidants from raw cacao, so if you are going to eat raw chocolate, keep it vegan too for ultimate awesomeness!
All The Chocolate Yogi product recipes contain no ingredients of an animal origin. We confirm that our company minimises cross-contamination from animal substances used in other (non-vegan) products as far as is reasonably practicable. We are however made in a facility that manufactures products containing cows milk. May contain traces of cows milk.
We make all of our vegan raw chocolate from scratch using traditional artisan chocolate-making techniques adapted to wholefood, vegan ingredients.
Every batch of our chocolate is conched for a minimum of 48 hours. This allows the acids to be released from the cacao and for the taste profile of the chocolate to deepen and mellow (like a fine wine). Each ingredient has to be added in the right order and at the right speed to create the ultimate layering of taste, texture and creaminess. Basically, it has all the goodness of vegan raw chocolate, but it tastes like naughty chocolate!
