Our chocolate is raw Hispaniola cacao from Dominican Republic. Great care is taken by the father of this family farm to avoid reaching fermentation temperatures above 115 degrees, preserving the rawness of the cacao. We use a single origin, straight from the bean, cacao mass with very little cacao butter for maximum health benefit. We do not use reconstituted cacao powder. We do not use chocolate couverture. We do not use any emulsifiers. We choose not to follow any such cost and time saving practices which we believe come at the expense of quality. Our at-source method provides the purest, strongest and most authentic flavors and aromas. Our dark chocolate clocks in at about 90%. Most of the 10% non-cacao components are from the generous portions of pure and healthful, vanillin-rich, Bourbon vanilla, NOT from sweetener. We do not sweeten with refined or processed sugar but only with raw unpasteurized honey and pure maple syrup of the highest grade. We use non-radiated, unpasteurized, raw nuts & seeds which we then sprout ourselves, releasing antioxidants and vitamins and breaking down starches, enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid. This allows for easier digestion and nutrient absorption and the health benefits go through the roof. Our 28 gram medium size Rocks have only 2 or 3 grams of low glycemic unrefined sugar and 4 to 5 grams of protein. Our truffles are dairy-free (dairy may neutralize some health benefits of dark chocolate), and free of any other ingredients or additives whatsoever. All the ingredients have been sourced from the best quality, often small local farms and are Certified Organic. Hnina truffles are Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo and Kosher. No expense is spared and no shortcuts are ever taken. Hnina truffles are a pure and unprocessed product designed for maximum health benefits, taste and textures. We make six different nut combinations and one seed combination truffles: Almond + Hazelnut Macadamia + Pistachio Brazil Nut + Almond + Coconut Walnut + Cashew Pecan + Pine Nut Pistachio + Hazelnut Seeds (Flax, Sesame, Pumpkin, Sunflower) All of the above are offered in three different preparation styles: Roasted – Raw dark chocolate – Sprouted and slightly roasted nuts & seeds – Raw honey & pure maple syrup for sweetening – Pure Bourbon vanilla – No additional ingredient. Raw – Same as Standard except the nuts & seeds are raw, not roasted. Vegan -Same as Raw except sweetened only with pure maple syrup (no honey).
