Chocolate with Naturally Preserved Cocoa Flavanols

Through careful growing, special handling of the cacao fermentation, along with a unique chocolate making process that uses low roasting, this dark chocolate retains much of the natural cocoa flavanol in a more intense way than most dark chocolate types. It is considered high intensity flavanol chocolate.

Contains between 1.8 and 2.4% flavanols (Between 1800 mg/100g and 2400 mg/100g)

Uniquely High Cocoa Flavanols DP1-10 2% - Degree of Polymerization 1 through 10

Flavonoid Types: Catechin, Epicatechin and Quercetin

66% Cocoa Content

Taste Notes

The predominant flavor is dark chocolate fudge, but the way this chocolate melts and releases the flavor is unique. As it melts, a mild fresh green and alkaline experience develops that is similar to tasting wheat grass. The chocolate dissolves smoothly and evenly, releasing the classic cocoa fudge taste. The finish is a fresh mouth feel like after eating an artichoke.
