More about the Ingredients:
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!
