Our chocolate is made with pure, vegan, organic, wholefood ingredients and is a healthier way of getting your chocolate on! We make our raw chocolate from raw cacao which is the richest known source of anti-oxidants on the planet. Our raw chocolate is also free from cane sugar, gluten, dairy and soy, made in a factory that doesn't use nuts, so is gentler on your body and your mind. If you want an ultra gentle yogi treat, why not try our whyte chocolate bars: Head in the Clouds, Frothy Toffee and Whyte Oscar, they are caffeine and theobromine free*
*may contain traces of caffeine and theobromine.
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 Lucuma is a gorgeous Peruvian fruit powder which is chock full of vitamins, minerals and nutrients such as beta-carotene (an anti-carcinogen), zinc, iron, vitamin C, niacin (B3), and fiber. It also contains 14 essential trace minerals. It is also extremely high in antioxidants meaning it helps to fight and prevent disease, and slow the aging process. Lucuma has as much calcium as a glass of milk, and is a natural low GI sweetener.
Vanilla adds a beautiful delicate flavour. Some ancient Mayans believed it to be an aphrodisiac, but whether that is true we will leave up to your own experimentation! Vanilla contains B vitamins and minerals, but mostly we love the beautiful flavour and aroma.
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!
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 stoneground for 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!
We then mould and adorn our chocolate with beautiful hand-made vegan hunnycomb (made from coconut sugar, maple syrup and organic bicarb) and our coconut sugar toffee.
All of our chocolate is made in our dedicated factory which is a vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free zone of happiness.*
*Although we do not use nuts, we cannot yet guarantee that we are nut free as we are waiting for signed assurance from our ingredient suppliers. Watch this space for more information.
