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: This hasn’t been heated to the high temperatures of ordinary cocoa so 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 is cholesterol neutral thanks to the oleic and stearic acid content.
- Organic Coconut Sugar is full of calcium, potassium, magnesium, boron, zinc and B vitamins, and has a low Glycaemic Index so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar,
- 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 cholesterol neutral raw cacao butter and vitamin rich raw lucuma, but instead of coconut sugar, we use natural birch tree derived xylitol which has 40% fewer calories than cane sugar, is low GI and studies have shown it can be good for your teeth, sinuses & lungs.
(*Xylitol cannot be certified as organic so this chocolate can only be 70% organic but we still choose to use it because of it's amazing benefits.)
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.
