A Healthy-for-you Alternative
Taking hemp extract in capsules, tinctures, or even vapes is becoming more common than it ever was. But in chocolate? Yes, we say, in chocolate.
With only a couple of organic ingredients in our hemp extract chocolate, we keep it beautifully pure and simple. We chose to include only the highest-quality fairly traded raw cacao nibs, natural coconut sugar, and luscious cacao butter when crafting our chocolate.
Raw Cacao Nibs
By keeping the cacao nibs raw, the chocolate retains all of the natural antioxidants found in the cacao tree. While many people are aware that chocolate is often touted for its antioxidant properties, most do not understand the extent of the distinction between highly processed, low-quality chocolate and its superfood cousin, the pure and dark cacao nibs.
Cacao nibs come from the seeds of the fruit of the cacao tree and contain a plethora of phytonutrients. These nutrients are not considered vital for sustaining life but help tremendously with disease prevention and treatment. It is high levels of these phytonutrients, including sulfur, magnesium, and flavonoids, in addition to the multitude of antioxidants, that give cacao its “superfood” status.
Coconut sugar, the second ingredient in our premium chocolate, is a natural sugar derived from the sap of the coconut tree. This sweetener is better for diabetics and contains inulin, which promotes healthy gut flora. It also contains small amounts of vitamins and minerals, which definitely makes it the most nutritious choice when a sweetener is needed. We add just enough to counteract the bitterness of the pure cacao, while still giving you an authentic cacao experience.
Cacao butter, the less-processed alternative to cocoa butter, is another superfood that is chock-full of nutrients, healthy fats, and antioxidants that fight free radicals and balance mood and hormones. Cacao butter is known for its anti-aging properties, its ability to boost the immune system, and its “feel good” effects. Made from cold-processed and unroasted beans to retain its beneficial properties, our cacao butter is pure and simple, allowing you to take full advantage of the many health benefits that it has to offer.
After the cacao nibs, coconut sugar, and cacao butter are mixed into a creamy and luscious paste, it is molded into a bar that is then infused with our organic, CO2-extracted hemp extract. Made from organic hemp on a local farm in Kentucky, our hemp extract is always kept pure, without added preservatives or GMO’s.
With superfood ingredients, a large variety of nutrients and minerals, and 25mg of full-spectrum hemp extract, the end result is not your regular chocolate bar. It's a totally good-for-you, healthy version of the food we all love best. With its high quality and potent benefits, you can truly have your chocolate and eat it too - no guilty pleasures involved!
