How our chocolate is different
Super Food Cacao / We Use Maple Syrup and Lakanto
We sources the high quality cacao from Ecuador and the finest ingredients to hand-craft chocolate that does not contain refined sugars. We use maple syrup and monk fruit sweetner (Lakanto) instead, is gluten- free dairy-free, soy free.
Cacao is a powerful antioxidant and highly nutritious that has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries, as well as the highest plant-based source of iron. It has more calcium than cow’s milk, and is full of magnesium for a healthy heart & brain to help you work with clarity and focus.
Cacao contains a molecule called phenylethylamine (PEA) which has been scientifically found to improve your mood and lift the spirit as a result of increased serotonin and dopamine within the brain. So scientifically, chocolate can help keep you happy and healthy - both in body and mind!
Why maple syrup is little better?
We don't use refined sugar in our chocolate as it has no much nutritional value, and has been shown to lead to high blood pressure, inflammation, weight gain, and diabetes.
Instead, our dark chocolate is sweetened with maple syrup which has the following nutritional benefits:
- A source of numerous vitamins and minerals
A lower glycemic index than refined sugar, so it won't spike your blood sugar levels as quickly
- Overall more gentle for your body than refined sugar
Our white chocolate is made only with organic cacao butter, not added the rice powder nighter coconut powder. Also, it's sweetened with lakanto monkfruit sweetener which is zero calories and zero carbohydrates.
