Loving Earth's Chocolate is made by us with Raw Cacao from bean to bar here in Melbourne. This means that our chocolate 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.
Our Raw Dark Chocolate has a nice clean snap, a smooth texture and a beautifully complex flavour. The Evaporated Coconut Nectar gives the flavour a wonderful depth with toffee citrusy notes, in addition to making the bar extremely healthy. Enjoy all the powerful antioxidants of the Cacao with the low GI mineral rich sweetness of the Coconut Sugar!

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.
Eat a square or two for a delicious, energising snack. Even better when shared with someone you love!
Our chocolate is best enjoyed chilled. For best results store in a cool dark place below temperatures of 20 degrees – preferably refrigerated.
