A HEALTHIER ALTERNATIVE
Are all calories the same? We say no! Our calories come from fat from our cocoa butter. We believe calories from sugar are far more of an issue. Fat makes you satiated quickly, feeds your brain and thus you do not ‘crave’ more, whereas sugar makes you want to eat more and more, which is why there is such a big push to reduce sugar intake.
HOW MUCH SUGAR IS THERE IN NORMAL CHOCOLATE?
There is as much as 56g of sugar in some brands of chocolate. This equates to 11 teaspoons of sugar!! Shocking we know. The daily allowance of sugar is just 6 – 9 teaspoons, so one bar of chocolate can be nearly double your daily allowance. By comparison, there is less than 1 teaspoon of sugar in every bar of Pure Heavenly. The good news is that because our chocolate is low in sugar and high in fat you are satiated far more quickly and therefore only need a small amount to feel satisfied.
BUT AREN’T THE FATS IN COCOA BUTTER JUST AS BAD?
The fat in chocolate comes from cocoa butter and is made up of equal amounts of oleic acid (a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat also found in olive oil), stearic and palmitic acids.
However – the obesity epidemic only started when low fat diets became all the rage. We recommend you watch the movie “Fat Fiction” on Amazon Prime – it will open your eyes to the complete disaster that thinking removing fat from diets is the healthy option. Fat is very filling so you don’t need much to satisfy a craving whereas sugar is totally addictive. Think about the last time you were able to eat just ONE biscuit!!
OUR SUGAR ALTERNATIVES
The most common misconception is that sugar is ‘natural’ and therefore better for you. It is not! Our recipe contains a mix of sugar alternatives from mostly natural sources: inulin (chicory root), and erythritol (from fruits and vegetables) and both make up the majority of our sweeteners.
Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Soy Free, Egg Free, GMO-Free, and Palm Oil Free.
While we do not use nuts in any of our products, unfortunately despite working to stringent allergen rules, as we work on a shared site we can not claim to be 100% nut free in case of any cross contamination.
