Now You Can Indulge In Totally Healthy Raw Chocolate in 10 Delicious Flavours!

* Gluten Free
* Dairy Free
* Sugar Free
* Low GI

Made with single origin, certified organic raw cacao from Satipo, Peru, Loving Earth raw chocolate bars are handmade in Melbourne. The cacao is raw, which means our chocolate has up to 4 times as many antioxidants as conventional chocolate. We use organic agave syrup (a natural, low GI sweetener) instead of sugar to create these delicious chocolate bars.  As our chocolate is made with raw criollo cacao it has a slightly lower melting point than regular processed chocolate, so it is best stored below 25ºC.

This chocolate is dark, potent and extremely satisfying - a little goes a long way!

How it's processed

First of all, the cacao pods are harvested from the trees and cracked open. The beans are then taken out and fermented. The level of fermentation affects the flavour; we do a low fermentation of about 45 degrees C, as otherwise the temperatures can get quite high, which affects the structure of the nutrients. The main thing that Loving Earth does differently to other chocolate makers is that we don't roast the raw cacao beans before we process them. The standard procedure in the chocolate industry is to roast the raw cacao, which helps bring out the flavour. It removes a lot of the microbiological contamination they might contain, but it also removes some of the valuable antioxidants contained within. What we do instead is wash them with a citric-based organic disinfectant. Afterwards, they're dried in large commercial dehydrators, at controlled temperatures, before being winnowed into nibs, which basically means taking the skin off them. Then we grind them into liquor, and finally we press them into powder and butter.

Basically, we get five products from this process. We get raw cacao beans, and because we've disinfected and washed them you can eat them - raw! We get raw cacao nibs, which are the beans without the skin. We get raw cacao liquor, which is the nibs ground into a paste. Then when we take the the liquor and put it into a very high-pressure press, which presses all the fat and butter out of it. So the end product is the raw cacao butter and then this hard cake that's milled into raw cacao powder. 1kg of liquor is about 50% fat, so when you press the liquor you get about 40% cacao butter and 60% powder. The powder retains about 10% fat content after pressing, and all the antioxidants plus a lot of the nutrients are concentrated in that powder.

We buy and import these five products, which we use to make our raw chocolate from scratch. When indigenous communities such as our friends in Peru manage to add as much value as possible at the point of origin, not only do we support agricultural industry, but also the development of that community. We get the five basic materials we need to make our chocolate, and they earn more, allowing them to further develop infrastructure to process their cacao.

How it's packaged

Every Loving Earth chocolate bar comes to you in a plant-based inner wrapper to maximise freshness and extend shelf life. These wrappers are not made of plastic, so please recycle them!

The boxes which contain our wrapped chocolate bars are made from 80% recycled post-consumer cardboard and are printed with vegetable inks.

Creamy Coconut Mylk Chocolate Bars Sweetened with Coconut Nectar - Loving Earth - 30g and 80g bars

  • Description
  • More Details
This Creamy Coconut Mylk Chocolate is made with Amazonico Criollo, Certified Organic Raw Cacao (47%) from Satipo, Peru, Organic Coconut and sweetened with Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar.

This is the ultimate creamy raw chocolate experience! Our Creamy Coconut Mylk Chocolate captures the flavour and smoothness of milk chocolate, without using any dairy.

What is it?

It’s surprising to note that this chocolate bar is the result of only two plants – the coconut palm tree and cacao. Keeping the ingredients simple and close to their natural state is key to the unique quality of our chocolate.

We’ve always believed that Coconut and Cacao is the perfect marriage – the creaminess of the coconut compliments the rich flavours of cacao beautifully. We’ve played with the subtle balance of this pair to create a new flavour, lighter in cacao content compared to our popular Coconut Mylk Chocolate, one which we could only describe as ‘creamy’!

Coconut Mylk Chocolate Bars Sweetened with Coconut Nectar - Loving Earth - 30g and 80g bars

  • Description
  • More Details

We've combined Coconut and Raw Cacao to create this decadent, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth 'Mylk Chocolate'. Supremely delicious, this healthy treat 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.

People really love the luxuriantly creamy flavour of milk chocolate. The unfortunate fact is that combining dairy with cacao blocks and nullifies many of its nutrients and benefits. Yet the synergy between two superfoods such as Cacao and Coconut is not only extremely healthy, but delicious in a way that simply can’t be imagined without tasting it. Our Mylk Chocolate approximates the flavour and smoothness of milk chocolate, without using any dairy or cane sugar.

The coconut we use at Loving Earth is certified organic and sulphite free. A rich source of lauric acid (antifungal, antimicrobial), coconut is also a rich source of dietary fibre.
