- Product Overview
Made with single origin Certified Organic Raw Cacao (55%) from Peru and sweetened with Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar, our chocolate bars are hand-made in Melbourne.
We've combined Coconut and Raw Cacao to create this decadent, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth 'Mylk Chocolate'. Supremely delicious, this healthy treat has up to twice as many antioxidants as conventional chocolate. We use Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar (a natural, low GI sweetener) instead of cane sugar to create this delicious chocolate bar.
People really love the luxuriantly creamy flavor of milk chocolate. The unfortunate fact is that combining dairy with Cacao blocks and nullifies many of its nutrients and benefits. Yet the synergy between two superfoods such as Cacao and Coconut is not only extremely healthy, but delicious in a way that simply can’t be imagined without tasting it. Our Mylk Chocolate approximates the flavor and smoothness of milk chocolate, without using any dairy or cane sugar.
The Coconut we use at Loving Earth is certified organic and sulphite free. A rich source of lauric acid (antifungal, antimicrobial), coconut is also a rich source of dietary fibre.

Raw Cacao Beans contain 10 grams of flavonol antioxidants per 100 grams, which is an incredible 10%. Research has also demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that our Loving Earth Raw Chocolate has more antioxidants than Goji Berries and Acai Berries. 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 the primary dietary source of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in western civilisation. 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.
Mood elevators and Anti-depressants
Cacao is a great source of serotonin, dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine (PEA), four well-studied neurotransmitters, which are associated with feelings of well being and help alleviate depression. Both PEA and Anandamide (the bliss chemical) are found in abundance in the brains of happy people and are particularly released when we are feeling happy. Both of these nuerotransmitters are present in raw cacao in large enough quanitities to affect the brain and lift our moods. Cacao also contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAO Inhibitors) that keep neurotransmitters in the bloodstream for longer without being broken down.
We have all experienced the positive feelings associated with eating chocolate, now we have access to pure raw unadulterated chocolate in the form of Organic Raw Cacao. This is much more potent than the processed chocolate and doesn't have any sugar or dairy products blocking the positive effects of all the goodies in Raw Cacao. My experience is that eating 11 Raw Cacao Beans is enough to experience a blissful sense of well being.
A few squares of Coconut Mylk Chocolate provides a delicious energising snack.
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, messy though it is!
