- Product Overview
This Mandarin & Gubinge Creamy Mylk Chocolate is made with Amazonico Criollo, Certified Organic Raw Cacao (46%) from Satipo, Peru, infused with mandarin essential oil and sweetened with Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar, our chocolate is made in Melbourne.
Loving Earth have crafted this chocolate using raw Amazonico Criollo Cacao and infused it with fragrant mandarin and a subtle hint of cardamom. We have then added Gubinge, a vitamin C rich plum picked by the Nyul Nyul people in the pristine Kimberley wilderness of Western Australia.
The Virgin Cacao Butter used to make this chocolate is Fair Trade Certified. Fair Trade standards ensure that producers and their community receive a fair share of the benefits of trade, thus improving the quality of their lives.
We have sweetened this chocolate bar with Organic Evaporate Coconut Nectar from the island of Java, Indonesia. This low GI (35), mineral rich sweetener, produced from coconut palm blossoms is considered the most sustainable in the world and makes a great cane sugar alternative.

Raw Cacao Nibs
Research has demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that our Raw Cacao has set the world record for antioxidants when compared to the other top 10 antioxidant foods such as Goji Berries, Acai Berries, and blueberries. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food.
Magnesium for the Heart and Brain
Raw Cacao is a good source of Magnesium. Magnesium is the most important mineral for a healthy functioning heart. It also plays a key role in producing energy for the neurons in the brain from glucose. So when there is an abundance of magnesium the brain works with clarity and focus.
Evaporated Coconut Nectar:
Our Evaporated Coconut Nectar is unfiltered and preservative free. It has a low Glycemic Index (GI) of 35. By comparison, most honeys are GI 55 and cane sugars are GI 68.
The Glycemic Index provides a ranking for carbohydrates according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a low GI (less than 40), produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, avoiding the sugar “highs” and “lows” that we experience when consuming foods with high GIs.
Evaporated Coconut Nectar also has a nutritional and mineral content that is richer than all other commercially available sweeteners. When compared to brown sugar, Evaporated Coconut Nectar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc.
Two to three squares of our Mandarin & Gubinge Mylk Chocolate makes for a luxurious and decadent experience.
Mandarin & Gubinge Creamy Mylk Chocolate melts at a lower temperature than our other chocolate due to its healthy coconut fat content, which has a lower melting point than Cacao Butter. Therefore, it's best to store it in the fridge to get that crunchy snap. If it melts it's still fine. In fact, some people love it that way.
