Venturing into the vegan lifestyle, or just curious about the option of a healthy chocolate, there is no doubt that there has been an increase in better options becoming available, although a healthy chocolate does sound too good to be true…
Amongst the up and coming healthy chocolate brands is Conscious Chocolate, back in 2014 founder Emma had a desire for a chocolate that is healthy as well as heavenly. The chocolate was originally hand-made in her kitchen and sold at Borough Market, London Bridge and markets across the UK. It has since expanded rapidly, the truffle-like chocolate is now made and packaged by hand in a unit in West Sussex and sold in a number of independent health food stores.
The Conscious mandate is that everyone can enjoy delicious chocolate regardless of dietary requirements. Only using ethically sourced, raw, organic, premium ingredients; it is certified organic, vegan and vegetarian, free from gluten, dairy and soya – with a low Gi and sweetened only with agave nectar or rice syrup.
With 15 delicious flavours in the Conscious range it’s hard to know which one to choose first, each bar has its own story and contains consciously chosen ingredients, adding texture and additional healthy benefits.
Dairy-free options usually mean dark chocolate, which can become quite bitter, Conscious Chocolate has developed a new range that sweetens the bars with rice syrup. The syrup has the highest content of minerals, B vitamins and proteins of all foods, keeping your heart healthy and boosting your energy.
Amongst the range is the Lions Raw rice syrup bar which also gives 10% of the sale price to the global white lion protection trust. Made with essential oils of lemon, grapefruit, and lime, cacao solids 60%, the blend of these uplifting essential oils brings clarity and spiritual fulfilment.
