All our chocolates are raw, vegan, cane sugar free, gluten free, soya free and we are working towards making them 100%* organic. Our intention is to create chocolates that are as nutritious as possible, but without the denial of pleasure created by delicious taste, so we take great care in thoughtfully selecting ingredients known for their vitamin, anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as for their beautiful flavour experience.

All, (with the exception of the Lemon Sorbet, see below) are made with:
- Organic Raw Cacao: Studies have shown that as raw cacao hasn’t been heated to the high temperatures of ordinary cocoa, it retains all the antioxidants, nutrients, polyphenols and enzymes. Raw cacao is the highest plant based source of iron and has a higher anti-oxidant and polyphenol profile than berries. Cacao also contains trace elements, vitamins and minerals including magnesium, calcium, iron, B vitamins, boron, zinc, manganese, potassium.
- Organic Raw Cacao Butter contains wonderful oleic and stearic acid.
- Organic Coconut Sugar is full of calcium, potassium, magnesium, boron, zinc and B vitamins, and although is similar calories to cane sugar, coconut sugar has the same GI as a chick pea!
- Organic Raw Lucuma; the Peruvian fruit known for its beta-carotene, iron, zinc, calcium, protein, vitamin B3.
Lemon Sorbet is similar in that it includes raw cacao butter and raw lucuma, but instead of coconut sugar, we use natural plant derived erythritol which has 0 calories and registers as 0 on the GI scale.
We hope you love our chocolate and also hope you have the chance to take a small moment in each day aside, to find and appreciate the beauty in nature.
