Inspired to find a solution to the challenge many people face when starting sugar free diet, I wanted to create the perfect chocolate bar with the best possible nutritional value, healthy fats and refined sugar-free chocolate. While also tasting as good as your old sugar-full chocolate, there is no longer a need to compromise on health.
Did you know that the antioxidants in cacao are blocked when you add sugars, milk, or fillers to chocolate? Thankfully Superfood Cocoa is focused on quality ingredients and skipping the sugar or artificial stuff so you can taste, not only delicious rich chocolate but also get all the health benefits from cacao. This way, the antioxidants can do their job such as digesting food correctly, and giving mental clarity.
Take a look inside the chocolates.
CRIOLLO CACAO BEANS
Cacao is what Linnaeus named Theobroma, or ‘Food of the Gods’, from the Greek ‘theos’ meaning ‘god’ and ‘broma’ meaning ‘food’. The cacao plant is a tropical tree whose natural habitat is the lowest layer of the rain forest. Its favourable habitat is therefore the tropical rain forest, which has a more or less constant climate throughout the year, with abundant and regular rainfall. Cacao is mother nature’s superfood. When chocolate is made right it has amazing health benefits. We source the King of Cacao – organic raw Criollo cacao. Criollo is often described as being mildly acidic and rarely bitter. Criollo fans say it has a mild taste with secondary aromas of nuts, caramel, fruit, and tobacco. Organic cacao is packed with antioxidants that prevent damage to our cells and support blood flow, blood pressure, and inflammation. Also, did you know that cacao has plenty of healthy fats, soluble fiber, and minerals that are essential to our diets?
The Criollo cacao is 100% Pure and Organic. Produced without pesticides and unnatural chemical fertilisers which can harm the body and our general health. Produced in Peru. Certified organic by supervisory boards authorised by the Ministry of Agriculture.
To receive the greatest benefits from cacao, we love ‘raw’, non-roasted cacao beans. The high heat during the roasting process reduces the levels of antioxidants in the cacao, minimizing the powerful health benefits found in the unprocessed, raw cacao. Each batch is analysed by accredited laboratories carrying out microbiological, pesticides, aflatoxins and heavy metals analysis. Certification no. UE834/2007.

We are happy to make chocolate batch just for you sweetened with Erythritol. Please be sure to email us about your special request. We love Erythritol because…..
Erythritol occurs naturally in small quantities in some fruits and fermented foods. To industrially produce it, it has to undergo a natural fermentation process of glucose extracted from corn or starch. Since its molecule is so small and simple and has a low GI (glycaemic index), the gut digests it easily, which can help hydrate your colon, protect the intestinal tissue, and purify the colon from pathological organisms. Last, but not least, it has antioxidant properties fighting oxidative stress, preventing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
