Cacao is naturally rich in improtant nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, flavonoids (polyphenols), and last but not least "love chemicals". That's what we call the cacao's natural mood enhancers such as Tryptophan and Anandamide; also known as the bliss chemical. In order to keep our raw cacao close to nature, we process it as little as possible, leaving out a lot of the conventional chocolate processing steps.
We use only the best natural ingredients for our products. Therefore, all ingredients are organic (SKAL certification 1249180) and we use heirloom Arriba Nacional cacao from Ecuador. Lovechock sources its cacao beans directly from small farmers who do not use any pesticides and often grow other fruit besides cacao (bio diversity).
The raw cacao that Lovechock uses is produced in an honest way. Farmers are treated respectfully and paid a fair wage for growing best quality organic cacao for us. Lovechock follows the Direct Trade principle, meaning that we buy our cacao beans directly from farmers' cooperatives, cutting out the many intermediaries usually involved in the cacao industry.
No refined sugars - we use natural sweeteners in our Lovechock raw chocolate, like dried coconut blossom nectar or dates. And just like all our ingredients, these natural sweeteners are 100% organic.
Lovechock wants to take care of the planet. Out of love for our earth all products are packed plastic-free and completely biodegradable. And this already since 2011.
From the start all our products are vegan. We want to honor the planet that supplies our ingredients. And we know we can make our raw chocolate taste delicious without any animal products.
Palm oil free
Lovechock chocolate is palm oil free. We do not only process the cacao as minimal as possible, we also add as many ingredients as necessary. And when we add something, we add exquisite ingredients like superfoods - and no cheap fat.
Our chocolate contains no traces of wheat or gluten. With Lovechock, you can indulge in chocolate even when suffering from gluten intolerance.
