Our delicious new Organic Dark Coconut Sugar Chocolate covered Almonds Dusted in Our Unroasted Cocoa/Cacao Powder are a wonderful treat, our unpasteurised organic almonds are encased in our unique dark chocolate that is just Dominican Republic 67% dark cocoa simply sweetened with coconut sugar, to finish they are then dusted in our organic unroasted Peruvian Ecoandino cacao powder for maximum cacao goodness in one snack! Absolutely nothing else. As well as being cane sugar free they are also vegan and are gluten free.
Our unpasteurised organic almonds from Europe are the best we can source and the chocolate is the simplest we can make – just the finest single origin Dominican republic organic cocoa/cacao sweetened with our coconut sugar.
Organic almonds are high in protein and fibre and are an excellent source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and vitamin E.
Our un-roasted cocoa/cacao powder is made from the highest quality Peruvian cocoa beans from the cacao company Ecoandino. Cocoa that has not been roasted does not have the strong flavour and aroma associated with traditional roasted cocoa, however this does have a delightful milder flavour with a lower fat/cocoa butter content of 10-12%. Cocoa/cacao powder provides a rich source of antioxidants and minerals such as magnesium, iron, potassium and zinc. Cocoa beans that have not been roasted are claimed to have the highest nutrient density of cocoa. Please note although others may sell this as “raw” we call this unroasted cacao powder, for more details please see our blog post here.
Coconut sugar is considered to have a much lower GI rating than cane sugar and also contains many nutrients. Coconut sugar, although a fraction less sweet than our cane sugar chocolates, also imparts a very subtle hint of caramel. It is the perfect chocolate indulgence for primal style diets.
As we keep our chocolate as pure as possible our chocolate covered treats are not finished to shining perfection as other chocolate snacks may be that have added nasties such as shellac and other polishing agents. We also don’t add anything to stop our chocolate melting such as lecithins as again we want to keep our chocolate as natural as possible. Using our purest chocolate means our snacks have a raw finish and a few may clump. We advise storing in a cool, dark place.
Our 67% coconut sugar chocolate cacao dusted almonds may be suitable for a wide range of diets and those with intolerances though at the RealFoodSource we always encourage you to do your own independent research.
Simply grab from the bag and enjoy!
