Geniuses (even if we do say so ourselves!)
Ok, this chapter may not be named after us but we’re more than a little proud of our vegan blend of dark chocolate and coffee beans. If you’re looking for a little pick me up without any additives, this bean-to-bar vegan chocolate is for you.
Although coffee wasn’t roasted and brewed until around the 16th century, coffee beans were a popular stimulant for centuries before that. In fact, it’s believed that it was a 9th century goatherder who first stumbled across them, so they’ve been around for far longer than you might imagine and, if Jack traded his family’s cow for these magic beans, we can totally understand why.
While coffee is well-known for its invigorating effect, you may be surprised to learn that dark chocolate has an array of brain benefits too. In a recent study, participants who consumed 70% dark chocolate showed an increase ‘in the gamma frequency in the cerebral cortical regions of the brain’. This area is involved in sensory processing and memory, so it’s possible that a healthy amount of dark chocolate can help your brain to process and retain information.
By combining these two superfoods in our Geniuses chapter, we’ve doubled the benefits on offer (and created a bean-to-bar vegan chocolate with an exceptional flavour!).
If you’re looking for artisan vegan chocolate UK that’s as good for you as it tastes, our Healers chapter is sure to delight. Featuring a medicinal mushroom blend of Reishi, Cordyceps and Chaga, along with our 70% dark chocolate, the Healers chapter offers a host of health benefits.
Mushrooms have been revered for their medicinal effects for centuries and now, you can sample the benefits that these natural ingredients can offer.
Sometimes known as a lingzhi mushroom, Reishi mushrooms contain ganoderic acids which support the liver and can aid detoxification, as well as protecting the body against free radicals. In Chinese medicine, Reishi mushrooms are used to boost immunity, while its relaxing effects make it ideal for reducing stress, eliminating anxiety and aiding sleep.
Also used to enhance immune function and relieve stress, Cordyceps mushrooms are known for promoting blood flow too. This can help to boost your energy levels and improve athletic performance by stimulating ATP and increasing the body’s lactate threshold, so don’t be surprised if you enjoy more energy and stamina after consuming our Healers bean-to-bar chocolate!
The final medicinal mushroom in our vegan Healers chocolate products, Chaga, contains a wide range of minerals and nutrients that benefit everything from skin, hair and nails to immunity and blood sugar regulation. By boosting the creation of cytokines, for examples, Chaga mushrooms help to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which enable the body to ward off infections.
With so many health benefits on offer, it’s easy to see why medicinal mushrooms have been so popular throughout the ages and have even earned their place in folklore. Commonly featured in fairy tales, myths and legends, the origins of these marvellous natural remedies show that mushrooms aren’t just a fictitious source of wisdom and wonder.
When combined with the health benefits of our delicious 70% dark chocolate, you can enjoy a sweet treat that’s good for your mind and body with our Healers chapter.
If marshmallows have been off the menu since you embraced a plant-based diet, get ready to think again. Our Astronauts chapter features chocolate made from natural ingredients and vegan, egg and dairy-free marshmallows, so you can finally enjoy your favourite confectionery without any additives or hidden nasties.
We tend to think of marshmallows as a modern invention, but the mallow plant is another natural wonder that’s been enjoyed for centuries and was commonly used to treat ailments, such as coughs and sore throats.
However, this isn’t the only time that marshmallows have come in handy. When venturing into space, savvy astronauts place marshmallows in their nostrils to prevent damage caused by cabin decompression. While we don’t recommend doing the same with our Astronauts chapter, we won’t judge if you do.
Blended with 65% dark chocolate, our Astronauts bean-to-bar chocolate offers the perfect combination of sweet marshmallows and bitter chocolate to deliver a unique (and moreish!) flavour. With the proven health benefits of dark chocolate, such as reducing blood pressure, lowering ‘bad’ cholesterol and enhanced brain function, and the unique texture of marshmallow, our Astronauts chapter isn’t just great-tasting – it’s an important element of a healthy, plant-based diet too.
The Art of Chocolate: Vegan Style
The benefits of a plant-based diet have been known for decades but vegan chocolate is a relatively new concept. As the popularity of plant-based chocolate grows, however, it’s woven its way into luxury chocolate art and is now a firm staple on the agenda of world-class chocolate schools. The result? Better tasting vegan chocolate that everyone can enjoy!
As well as crafting delicious vegan chocolate that combines a wide range of great-tasting natural ingredients, our commitment to producing ethical bean-to-bar chocolate means you can enjoy vegan chocolate that does good for everyone.
Working closely with our hand-picked suppliers in Venezuela and Ecuador, our carefully selected cocoa beans are fully traceable, so you can be confident that your favourite vegan treats are produced ethically.To discover the delights of our vegan chocolate range, why not treat yourself to our Geniuses, Healers and Astronauts chapters right now?
